‘SNL’ Alumni Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader Get Reacquainted in ‘The Skeleton Twins’
After leaving their longtime home at Saturday Night Live one year apart from each other, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader come together again in The Skeleton Twins, just like the estranged twin brother and sister they play in the film. The Skeleton Twins sees the pair dropping the comedy for a much more serious tone as both brother and sister are contemplating suicide and grappling with depression and disappointment.
It seems that they were successful and the movie was a hit when it premiered at Sundance. Critics who saw it there praised the performances by both Wiig and Hader and one of the scenes singled out as a highlight of the film features prominently in this trailer, as Wiig and Hader lip sync “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.”
The Skeleton Twins is set to hit theaters September 19.
