Andy Samberg's Hugh Jackman (his other two skits from this week)

Unfortunately, Andy was in two other skits this week that NBC did not put online (I already skimmed the full episode and made sure they were cut out of that as well). The reason is usually that they used music in the show that they don't have the rights to. Come on, NBC! Step up your game!

Don't make Wolverine Andy angry:

And here's a little info about the two skits...


Helen Mirren
Paul Brittain
Bill Hader
Taran Killam
Bobby Moynihan
Andy Samberg
Kenan Thompson

Apparently the SNL dudes were a bunch of sailors. =^)

Show - The Best of Both Worlds

Helen Mirren ... Julie Andrews
Bill Hader ... announcer (voice)
Taran Killam ... Gerard Butler
Bobby Moynihan ... Richie
Andy Samberg ... Hugh Jackman
Kenan Thompson ... Ice Cube

This is the first time Andy (and anyone on SNL) has done Hugh Jackman. It looks like Andy's Hugh was the host (which makes sad Andy even sadder).

I think it's hilarious that Andy's Hugh Jackman is a combination of Wolverine hair and Hugh's tux. (Reminds me of how Taran did his Ian McKellan impression as Ian dressed as Gandalf.) In fact, Taran does a similar thing in this skit with his Gerard Butler impression, dressed as King Leonidas from 300. Hilarious!

First time that Ice Cube (by Kenan Thompson) was done on SNL.

And it's the first time that Taran Killam (or anyone) played Gerard Butler. Although Gerard himself was on SNL and played a parody of his King Leonidas character.

Helen Mirren played Julie Andrews. Julie has only been parodied directly once on SNL by Christine Baranski back in 1996, on Molly Shannon's Courtney Love show:

Although Ann Hathaway played Mary Poppins a few years back.



What do you think of Wolverine Andy? Is he cute? Here he is again...

Oh, and did anybody see the episode and want to fill us in more about those two skits? Thanks!

You can find this skit on YouTube! I did - they are international friendly too :) (You can only watch the NBC Promos and Hulu Digital Shorts outside of the US)
