Jeremy Renner hosted Saturday Night Live and tried to bring in his Bourne comedy identity (recap)
We’re back for our big Thanksgiving episode of Saturday Night Live. Well, that’s what we thought before it aired. It turns out there wasn’t mention of the holiday at all. Which is kinda silly since we remember some classic SNL Thanksgiving sketches. Turns out, they wrote one but got cut after the dress rehearsal which is kind of a bummer because this was a bit better than some other sketches that actually aired.
So, how did Jeremy Renner do as hist first time host of the night? Like other first timer earlier this year Daniel Craig we had ourselves an action star that doesn’t have much of a comedy background so headed into last night. We’d either be pleasantly surprised, or it could be a long night.
The surprise of the night was during the monologue which we learned that Renner could actually sing. He did find himself with a bit of technical issues once he sat down at the piano but he managed to get by with a few awkward laughs and general good-sportedness about the situation. Hopefully it wasn’t a sign of bad things to come and Renner would be able to shake the jitters. Let’s break it down.
