Did you watch “Saturday Night Live“ last night? Justin Timberlake returned as host, but he wasn’t the only familiar face around there. The show also featured cameos from Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Dan Aykroyd, Paul Simon, Chevy Chase, Candice Bergen, Martin Short, recently departed cast member Andy Samberg, and Bill Hader‘s “Weekend Update” character, Stefon.
Best moments from the show:
The Five-Timers Club: “In case you don’t know, this is the most exclusive club in New York,” Timberlake said in his opening monologue upon joining the “Five Timers’ Club” during his fifth stint hosting “SNL.” Fortunately, he had some of the other club members to induct him. Steve Martin showed him around, and Alec Baldwin explained one of the favorite pastimes of the Five Timers: making cast members fight each other, “Django Unchained”-style.
“It’s a Date”: Not exactly a digital short, but Timberlake and Samberg revisited their “D— in a Box” and “Mother Lover” characters for the “It’s a Date” sketch, appearing as a singing duo of bachelors on a dating show. Aykroyd and Martin revisited their legendary “Two Wild and Crazy Guys” characters.
“Weekend Update”: Stefon’s back! Apparently his long hiatus was due to a writing job on “Smash.” Here he offers tips for Spring Break visitors to the city, including a club located in a burned-down Red Lobster and another one “based on the novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.”
Moet & Chandon: A mustachioed Timberlake plays a “feminist porn” star filming a commercial for champagne with ditsy former porn stars played by Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong (who do killer impersonations of bubbles).
