Woody Harrelson Set to Host SNL This Weekend, Introduces Hilarious Promo Clip

Woody Harrelson

When the stars come to SNL to play, the entertainment is always hilarious. This weekend’s episode will proudly bring you some famous faces that include Woody Harrelson. The actor is visiting as he promotes this little film he’s in the midst of, called “Mockingjay,” which you may or may not have heard of as part of the Hunger Games franchise. In the movie, he plays a raging alcoholic past winner of the games turned man on a mission to help Katniss overthrow the capital – and he does it with a cocktail and a sarcastic tongue the entire movie.

On the set of SNL, however, he’s just a funny guy probably without a cocktail. In the promo for the episode this weekend, Harrelson introduces himself as the host of the show while standing alongside Kendrick Lamar and Kate McKinnon. When he introduces Lamar, McKinnon mentions she loves them both on “True Detective,” to which Harrelson has to correct her that Lamar is not his co-host. Embarrassed, McKinnon admits she’s been going around telling people she tongue-kissed Matthew McConaughey. Lamar apologizes for deceiving her. In the next clip, Harrelson runs out onto the stage with McKinnon on his back, and then agrees to give Lamar a piggy back ride where he needs to go.

All in all, the show this weekend is set to be a funny one. Lamar, the musical guest, is on the set just ahead of the released of his debut, “Good Kids, m.A.A.d city.” If you want to see the three continue their antics, tune in Saturday at 11:30 to see what is destined to be another hilarious episode of SNL. Because really, when was the last time you saw an episode of Saturday Night Live that didn’t have you laughing out loud, and not in the pretend text message LOL way? Take a Look.
