Christoph Waltz hosted Saturday Night Live last night and did a passable job. What I’m reminded of every time I watch SNL with some big star hosting is just how hard it is to do sketch comedy. Rarely will you see a seasoned actor who doesn’t struggle a bit on SNL and even more rare is it when you see one who isn’t reading right off their cue cards the entire episode. Waltz wasn’t too bad but he struggled a bit. His best skit of the night was a digital short (which they could do multiple takes on until they got it right) spoofing Quentin Tarantino with Djesus Uncrossed.
The funniest line of this was the movie review that said Djesus Uncrossed was only half as violent as Passion of the Christ.
Not a great episode from SNL last night but not a terrible one either.
