Bruce Willis SNL Promos: Have Harmonica, Will Travel

After two big names in Tina Fey and Miley Cyrus, one of the biggest names in action movies is headed to Rockefeller Center for SNL this weekend. That’s right, Bruce Willis, Mr. Die Hard himself, will be returning to the Studio 8H stage!

As is customary, he filmed his promos for this weekend’s show but there was a new face in the promos this week. None other than Weekend Update anchor, Cecily Strong! Good for her, it’s nice to see one of the new-ish cast members get some promo time.

While some people (Kronner) are still feeling a little at odds with Bruce Willis over his latest Die Hard outing, there’s no denying he is a funny guy so this should be a fun show. Plus the musical guest is Katy Perry and if you need a reminder of her last visit to the show….

See you on Saturday SNL fans!

Jason Sudeikis Finally Confirms SNL Exit

Well it’s about time. Jason Sudekis has finally confirmed that this past season of SNL was his last.

In tonight’s episode of Late Night with David Letterman, Sudeikis confirms what all fans have assumed for months, his time in Studio 8H has come to a close.

It sucks that there won’t be a big send-off for the man who has become the “every man” of Saturday Night Live in recent years, but it seems right for the actor who excelled at the bewildered reaction to the rest of his cast members antics. Of course he was not without his own craziness as evidenced as one of his best Weekend Update characters, The Devil.

Now with the departure of Jason Sudeikis joining those of Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, and possibly Nasim Pedrad, the cast of SNL is going to look very different next year. Some featured players will move up to full cast (Kate McKinnon for sure) with new ones comes in, it’ll be interesting to see the announcements start rolling in come fall time.

Thanks for eight great seasons Jason Sudeikis!

Justin Bieber Almost Crushed By Wall in ‘Greatest Trainwreck Ever’

One of the best things about the internet age is the ability to get a behind the scenes look at our favorite shows that was not widely available before. One of my (obvious) favorite examples of this would be SNL. Not only do they occasionally post interviews with the cast and behind the scenes kind of stuff, but they also will post sketches that made it to rehearsal but not the final show.

Their most recent “web exclusive” is a look at a sketch that didn’t make the final cut that includes commentary from the Bill Hader and writers John Solomon and Rob Klein. It is rather fantastic even if it was ‘The Greatest Trainwreck Ever’.

Outside of the whole wall part and Justin Bieber saying “it’s not part of it”, the best part of that sketch is “I’m guessing most of you know it from ABC’s Private Practice“. Great line and a great look at something if it weren’t for the magical internet machines we’d never get to see.

Of course it would be a crime to talk about SNL’s web exclusives without including my favorite cast member, Taran Killam.

Good to know that he hasn’t abandoned his music video recreation career!
