Jason Segel Saturday Night Live
November 21, 2011 by staff
Jason Segel Saturday Night Live, During their lukewarm cold open, in which Jason Sudeikis played a “raw and unleashed” version of Mitt Romney (and by raw and unleashed they meant, wore a leather jacket and made “Obama hair” jokes,) it seemed like it was going to be business– or in this case, politics– as usual for Saturday Night Live. Then, as we’d all hoped, the Muppets showed up!
No, they weren’t hosting. (Though, they pondered why they weren’t. First the Oscars, now this!) Rather, they’d stopped by to help out their pal Jason Segel, who was having his first go as SNL host. After the beaming Segel hit the stage, he told the audience he couldn’t put his genuine excitement into words. Lucky for him, there was a piano and the Muppets–namely Kermit, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and Scooter–nearby to give him some assistance. During the sweet, bouncy little tune, titled “I Can’t Believe I’m Hosting SNL“, Segel lived out two of his lifelong dreams at the same moment: Hosting the late night show and hanging out with his beloved Muppets. If this opening monologue–which included some great zingers from the Muppets aimed towards Lorne Michaels and Segel himself (“When people go to a Muppet movie, they say, ‘Gee, I can’t wait to see the human!”)–was any indication of how funny, heartfelt and nostalgic The Muppets will be, I think we’re all in for a treat come Wednesday. Watch the full clip, including Kermit’s spot-on impression of Ray Romano and a visit from Statler and Waldorf,
