The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Sam Rockwell


People in love with movies love actor Sam Rockwell. Our personal favorite is his trippy role in Duncan Jones’ 2009 film Moon, in which Rockwell plays an astronaut doing a solitary stint on a lunar facility where his character slowly unravels. It’s a moody, quiet performance, quite unlike his boisterous appearance on last night’s SNL. Was it just us, or did Rockwell seem somewhat blah about joining the cast? Still, the star delivered some snappy, sharp lines that gave several of his characters a nasty and truly weird edge (whoa, Mr. Science, calm down). See how it all went down last night, below.

The Best

“Morning Joe Michael Wolff Cold Open”

Review of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff: ¯\_(ツ)_/ Plus, some special guests.

You know, Sam Rockwell — not the main guy, but that other guy (who we happen to be a big fan of).

“Chantix Commercial”

In case you want to quit smoking and have an existential crisis, use Chantix.

“Marcus Comes to Dinner”

Dads love gay porn, too.

“My Drunk Boyfriend”

“He’s a problem, but he’s your problem.” (And suddenly I’m so glad my boyfriend doesn’t like the taste of booze.)
