Abby Elliot, Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live may be losing another cast member.
Abby Elliott is nearing a deal to star in the Fox comedy pilot Ben Fox is My Manny, Entertainment Weekly reports.
From Couples Retreat writer Dana Fox, the project centers on an uptight single mom (Elliott) who moves in with her laid-back...
Zooey Deschanel, Saturday Night Live
The tragic death of Whitney Houston went unmentioned during Saturday Night Live, but the variety show paid silent tribute by going to commercial with a picture of the pop star with Molly Shannon from a 1996 Mary Katherine Gallagher sketch. (Strange timing: Up All Night star and former cast member Maya Rudolph, who did a Houston impression when she was on the show, is hosting next week.)
Host Zooey Deschanel opened the show with her ukulele to perform a humorous song about that guy who forgets Valentine's Day and tries to cover it up with Happy Birthday balloons, an old copy of USA Today and an 11:15 "reservation" at Olive Garden...
In case anyone had any doubt what Jason Segel was promoting on Saturday Night Live, the How I Met Your Mother star wasted no time in bringing out his colorful co-stars from The Muppets movie. During his monologue, Segel decided to sing about how he couldn't believe he's hosting SNL, when Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang hijacked his song and assumed that they were all hosting the show together as a group...
Anna Faris, Saturday Night Live
Anna Faris met her match when she hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time. While fielding questions about the Greek financial crisis and which religion is the best in the world, Faris came face to face with audience member, look-alike and kindred spirit Hannah Garis (Abby Elliot) — sporting the same haircut, same dress and same slightly air-headed disposition...
Helen Mirren was certainly game during her first hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. The Dame let castmate Nasim Pedrad feel her up and later shared a steamy liplock with Abby Elliot.
This week's digital short focused entirely on Mirren's "magical bosom." When Mirren allowed Pedrad to touch her breasts, she received visions of everything from the inspirational sports movie Rudy to Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon in 1969. Nasim even sees Jesus (played by Andy Samberg), who calmly explained that the Oscar winner's breasts "exist in...
Burly, bearded Zach Galifianakis began his Saturday Light Live monologue with some one-liners and impressions that included "the guy from Queens who's obsessed with cargo shorts," and ended up dressed like Little Orphan Annie singing "Tomorrow" with a complement of scrawled messages a la an old Bob Dylan video.
Jeff Bridges returned to host Saturday Night Live, noting it was the first time since 1983. Bridges, who received a SAG nomination for his performance in the latest Coen brothers movie, True Grit, used the monologue to poke fun at his role in an earlier Coen brothers film: The Dude, from The Big Lebowski.
Though Bridges denied any similarities, even the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street joined him on stage and called him The Dude. Bridges and the Cookie Monster — who had...
Robert De Niro
During his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro got laughs by dressing in drag and grinding with Diddy. In the sketch, De Niro plays the mother of up-and-coming "rapper" known as ...
Elisabeth Moss, Fred Armisen
Elisabeth Moss has filed for divorce from husband Fred Armisen after eight months, Entertainment Tonight reports.
