They said with the Paul Brittain thing it was mutual right? Lorne seemed like he was gonna fire him at end of season anyway and he wasnt really being used in any sketches. I noticed him in the background in the final episode. If there was any bad blood he wouldnt have been there
True, and he is going to be in "Grown Ups 2" along with Taran Killam, so it seems like he is still friends with everybody.
Guess they must have taken a new cast photo before the end of the season, with Brittain gone and McKinnon added:
Nah, I think they just photoshopped her face onto his body.
Actually, everybody looks photoshopped into that picture. There's something really weird about it, looks like none of them were in the same room together.
Hey, I guess Kristen Wiig is staying after all! Alright!
I know he wasn't a cast member, but here's a rare promo for Wild and Crazy Guy Steve Martin made around his SNL glory days.
Hey, I'm bored so I tried to make a list of what I think are the best SNL episodes of all time.
Here is what I came up with, see if you agree:
1) Steve Martin / The Blues Brothers (04/22/78)- Festrunk Brothers, Theodoric of York, Dancing in the
Dark, King Tut, Nerds Science Fair, Next Week in Review
2) Eddie Murphy/Robert Plant & The Honeydrippers (12/15/84)- White Like Me, Mr. Robinson,
Milestones, Buckwheat, Gumby, Black History Minute
3) William Shatner/Lone Justice (12/20/86)- Star Trek Convention, Sweeney Sisters, T.J. Hooker, Star
Trek Revolving Restaurant, Lost Ending to "It's A Wonderful Life"
4) Jerry Seinfeld/Annie Lennox (4/18/92)- Stand Up and Win, History Teacher, Elijah the Prophet,
5) Alec Baldwin/Paul McCartney (2/13/93)- Mimic, Chris Farley Show, Soap Opera Minute, Red Hooded
Sweatshirt, French Class
6) Jim Carrey / Soundgarden (05/18/96)- Roxbury Guys, Lifeguard, I'll See You In Hell, Joe Pesci Show,
Jimmy Tango's Fat Busters
7) Christopher Walken/Christina Aguilera (4/8/00)- Blue Oyster Cult, Continental, Jenny Jones, Census
8) Jack Black/Neil Young (12/17/05)- King Kong song, Sbarro, Christmas Time for the Jews, Lazy
Sunday, Two AHoles Buying a Christmas Tree, Spelling Bee
9) Justin Timberlake (12/16/06) - Santa's My Boyfriend, Homelessville, Target, Dick in a Box, Barry Gibb
10) Jon Hamm / Coldplay (10/25/08)- Jeff Montgomery (Forte's trick or treating sex offender), MAd Men Aholes sketch, Don Draper's Guide to Picking Up Women, Vincent Price Halloween special, Jon Hamm's John Ham
Now I have to go back and really go through the episodes for each season to see if I can add any to your list.
Fun idea, Brasky.
I would add this one for sure:
Conan O'Brien/Don Henley - 3/10/01 - Moleculo, Napster Hearings, Sportscentury: James "The Gentleman Masher" Corcoran, Taintless Ted
I also would like to add "Tom Hanks/ Keith Richards", from 10/08/88. Some of the stuff they did on that show was amazing.
For each one added, one must be subtracted.
Such is the way of things.
I'd be interested in unsung / underrated episodes. The Robert Downey Jr. ep from the 1996 was pretty good. It had one of Norm's "I'm in a musical?" sketches.
The Sylvester Stallone episode was pretty great and possibly underrated.
It has lots of funny sketches, the wedding singers who can only play "(I Just Died) In Your Arms Tonight", the guys who are excited to see lesbians but then disappointed when they are realistic lesbians, the "Let's Talk Books" sketch that was just an excuse for a lot of silly puns, etc. The Freddie Prinze Jr. episode from that season is a good one too, and contains the Dr. Beaman sketch ("I\'m sorry, I can\'t save your son, but I can do the Robot. That\'ll be $5,000, good day to you both."
Hello. I\'m Dr. Poop.
It's so amazing that with the amount of episodes there have been the two that immediately came to mind (Baldwin/McCartney, Stallone) have both been mentioned within a couple posts.
One of my all-time favorites was Robert Wagner/Linda Rondstatd & Aaron Neville - 12/9/89. Tales of the Runaway Boulder, Attack of the Masturbating Zombies, Sloppy Dinner Date, In The Middle, Swivel Chair Mystery Theater, Matt Stevers Male Nurse, and more.
