Will Forte finally got to host Saturday Night Live, and he had some friends help along the way!
Everyone Ruins Will’s Monologue
Will Forte started his episode by doing what he does best: being whiney and petulant. His monologue quickly turns into a pity party, with Forte passive-aggressively whining about it taking him 12 years since being a cast member to host. And if to rub salt on the wound, Kristen Wiig and Willem Dafoe make appearances and take his limelight.
Kristen Wiig is a friend and many-time co-star (including on Forte’s new show MacGruber), and he visited during her first monologue. But Willem Dafoe? That’s just mean. He’s next week’s host, he’ll get his turn! Hopefully Will Forte wants some payback and ruins Dafoe’s monologue next weekend.
As if anyone would be surprised, Will Forte resurrected the MacGruber sketch this weekend, along with Kristen Wiig and Ryan Phillipe, his long-time co-stars of the now franchise. And this time, MacGruber has gone full conspiracy theorist.
Now, if you were to do a full canon MacGruber binge watch, would this take place before or after the recent series? Maybe it’s a lead in to the potential season two storyline!
Or maybe not, because MacGruber and his team die in every one of these sketches. So, more like a What If, then? Otherworlds? Are we going to get an Into the MacGruberverse, or maybe like a MacGruber: No Way Home? How many MacGrubers is too many?
