Kate McKinnon did her best Ellen DeGeneres impersonation, which she's been doing to perfection on Saturday Night Live, while visiting the comedian's talk show on Wednesday. Towards the end of McKinnon's interview with Degeneres, the host presented her with an identical outfit to the one she was wearing, and asked her to change and come back out in character.
With the Presidential election now decided, Saturday Night Live used its cold open as an ode to one of their favorite punching bags of the past year — Mitt Romney. The cold open began with Romney (Jason Sudeikis) sneaking milk (gasp!) on the balcony the night of the election.
If there's anyone who knows there's no shortage of comedic talent out there, it's Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, 67, who has been with the iconic late-night show since it's inception 38 years ago, and has seen many funny people come and go.
With a little over a month before the latest James Bond installment, Skyfall, is set to hit theaters, Daniel Craig took a break from saving the world to host Saturday Night Live. The episode focused mainly on political satire, but it also took advantage of its host's Bond persona in its selection of skits.
Now that a good deal of the former Saturday Night Live talent has moved on to make room for newcomers Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson and Cecily Strong, it's also likely that some existing cast members like Kate McKinnon, Taran Killam, Nasim Pedrad and Jay Pharoah, many of whom have previously merely subsisted in the shadows of SNL greats like Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, who bid adieu to the late night sketch comedy program last season, will get a clearer chance to shine in the upcoming 38th season.
If Saturday Night Live decides to add Kate McKinnon as a member of its cast, the comedian will be the first openly gay female ever to win the honor. As a trial run, McKinnon will appear on the next live show on April 7, to be hosted by the voluptuous and gay-friendly Sofia Vergara, Deadline reported.
