Jennifer Aniston thought she was too good for Saturday Night Live
October 8th, 2019 under Friends (cast), Howard Stern, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

Before Jennifer Aniston was Friends with five other people in NYC, Lorne Michaels wanted her to be friends with people from Saturday Night Live. Even though she was a struggling actress, who was in many cancelled shows, she thought she was too good to work on show with her friends Adam Sandler and David Spade.

She told Howard Stern on his radio show yesterday that she was thrown when Michaels asked to meet with her. She sees herself as a serious actress and not a comedian.

Not only that, she did not think it was the right enviorment for her. She felt that it was a boys club and told Michaels that the women needed to be treated better there.

Needless to say after that, she did not get the job and went on to do Friends. And since then she has played Rachel Green in every role that she has played.

BTW was I the only getting a major bitch vibe from her. Like I am this great actress and SNL is beneath me? It wasn’t beneath Robert Downey Jr, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Billy Crystal and many many others.

I get that careerwise it worked out for her, but SNL was still hot back in the early ’90s. She should be a little more respectful because look at how many people got their start on the show and are still doing well.


BTWF: Conan O’Brien on Saturday Night Live
September 4th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Conan O'Brien, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

Before we watched the handsome Conan O’Brien host his talk show every night, he took a course to learn he is handsome on Saturday Night Live. How handsome was he 23-year-old in that 1989 sketch?


BTWF: Kate McKinnon in Mayne Street

Before Kate McKinnon was wearing other people’s faces on top of her own on Saturday Night Live, she wore a blank mask on Mayne Street. How funny was the 24-year-old in that 2008 episode?


SNL keeps one Ghostbuster and loses the other one!

Yesterday, Saturday Night Live announced that Woody Harrelson and Eddie Murphy will be hosting the show this season. Today, we found out that Kate McKinnon signed on for another season, but her Ghostbuster castmate Leslie Jones did not.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will be focusing on her feature film career which includes Coming to America 2 and her Netflix comedy special instead.

As of now, she is the only not ready for prime time player who will not be returning. Even Kenan Thompson who has his own sitcom and a million other projects will be back.

Are you going to miss Leslie Jones?


Keenan Thompson says that Kanye West’s weirdness was off the charts on SNL
December 7th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Kanye West, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

Keenan Thompson was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen yesterday and a fan wanted to know if Kanye West was a worse musical guest on Saturday Night Live than Justin Bieber.

Thompson said that likes the Beebs, but you can tell Mr. Kim Kardashian is a whole other story. He said, “Kanye was super far, you know, off the ripper type of weirdness. The ripper of weirdness is like here, and he was like way over there.” Yet for some reason, they keep booking West on the show. Which I am sure makes no sense to anyone else but Lorne Michaels.

Thompson also addressed whether or not we could ever get a Good Burger 2 movie. He says that he and Kel Mitchell have been having meetings about it, but it is up to the higher-ups to make that call. Considering that Brian Robbins, who created All That, Keenan & Kel and Good Burger, is now the head of the Nickelodeon, I think there is a good chance it will happen. I also hope they bring back All That with the original cast including those two, Lori Beth Denberg and Alisa Reyes.
