Deadpool Responds To SNL Hosting Petition With Kanye West-Style Meltdown

Deadpool

Deadpool has earned close to $200 million at the domestic box office in its first nine days of release, which is quite a feat for a scrappy R-rated Marvel Comics superhero action-comedy made on a production budget of $58 million. Most of the people who see it the first time can’t wait to see it again. This is more than a blockbuster; it’s a full-blown cultural phenomenon.

As further proof of this development, fans of the movie recently started a petition at Change.org to get star Ryan Reynolds to reprise his role as Deadpool for a gig hosting Saturday Night Live. As of this writing, the petition has gained over 70,000 signatures.

In response to this rallying call from his devoted fan base to introduce Marvel’s quippy Merc with a Mouth to the Not Ready for Prime Players, Reynolds released an audio speaking in character as Deadpool angrily ranting about SNL in the manner of the recently-leaked audio recording of Kanye West having an egocentric meltdown backstage at the show.

Check out the Deadpool recording here below.

Kylo Ren Star Wars Undercover Boss SNL

Undercover Boss on CBS gives audiences a chance to see business leaders witnessing the real side of their companies, by going undercover and working the grunt lifestyles. Adam Driver hosted SNL this weekend, and they gleefully used his role from the now biggest movie ever, Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens to spoof the popular series. Driver plays the evil Kylo Ren in the film, the leader of the notorious First Order; but in the sketch he’s Matt, a radar technician trying to feel out the employees on Starkiller Base. In the film, Ren is commonly short tempered and is known to be quick to overreact at the first signs of bad news. He appears in his ominous black cloak and voice distorting mask to set up the sketch.

Check out the SNL skit below.

TV Review: ‘I Am Chris Farley’ | Spike TV

Chris Farley

I Am Chris Farley
Directed by Brent Hodge & Derik Murray
Spike TV
Air Date: Monday August 10th, 2015, 10pm

I watched Spike TV’s documentary I Am Chris Farley that premiered last night. I laughed so hard I was crying. Then I actually started crying. Chris Farley has been dead nearly 20-years, but the impact he had on people my age has been an incredibly lasting legacy. I was 8 when Farley and a young crop of would-be megastars joined the cast of Saturday Night Live. Along with Chris, there was Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, etc. My parents used to record SNL on VHS, and we’d watch as a family over breakfast Sunday mornings. It was a staple of my childhood. Folks older than I grew up with Murray, Aykroyd, Chase, and Radnor. My friends and I had Farley and the gang.

‘SNL’: Marvel’s ‘Black Widow: Age Of Me’ Trailer

Black Widow

Every time Saturday Night Live gets a guest host who plays regularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they just can’t resist getting in a dig or two at the superhero blockbuster factory via a well-produced and hilarious sketch.

In late 2012, they had on Jeremy Renner and the collaboration resulted in an Avengers spoof centered around the relative lameness of Hawkeye. Last September, Chris Pratt was more than happy to participate in one of the show’s Digital Shorts taking comedic aim at his recent star-making turn in the summer smash Guardians of the Galaxy. Most recently, Chris Hemsworth suited up as Thor for another Avengers sketch that portrayed the mighty God of Thunder as a glory-hogging party animal.

This weekend, Scarlett Johansson guest hosted Saturday Night Live to help promote the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so naturally the show had to feature her in a Marvel-spoofing skit as her MCU character and Avenger extraordinaire Black Widow. True to SNL form, the sketch chose to stick it to Marvel Studios by showing how they would approach making a solo movie starring Johansson as the sultry superspy in the mock trailer for Black Widow: Age of Me.

SNL The Walking Dead Norman Reedus On Weekend Update

Walking Dead star Norman Reedus stopped by the Weekend Update desk during last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live.

The news segment featured cast member Pete Davidson, aka the “Resident Young Person,” who was supposed to talk about the series finale of the Walking Dead, which aired last Sunday, but instead the conversation turned into his propensity for smoking weed and his worries about surviving a zombie apocalypse. That’s when Reedus showed up as his Walking Dead character Daryl Dixon, signature crossbow in hand, ready to protect against Walkers.

SNL: Michael Keaton Tribute Includes Beetlejuice, Batman (Video)

SNL Michael Keaton Tribute Monologue

Michael Keaton made it big in the 1980s with lead roles in films like Beetlejuice and Batman, but the next two decades saw his career take a downward slump. But thanks to his lead turn in 2014 in the Academy Award-winning best picture Birdman, the 63-year-old actor has been riding high on the comeback wave.

Last night saw Keaton return as host of Saturday Night Live for the first time since 1992. You would think the actor’s major comeback would be the subject of his opening monologue, but instead it was hijacked by SNL cast members Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan, who desperately wanted him to play Batman and Beetlejuice with them.

Check out Keaton’s full monologue here below, along with some other skits from the episode.

 Dwayne Johnson Saturday Night Live Dwayne The Rock Johnson In Disney's Live-Action Bambi SNL

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did his fourth stint hosting Saturday Night Live last night, where he starred in one of their digital shorts centering on a new Disney film. With Disney riding the live-action train lately with Maleficent, the recent Cinderella, and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast, now comes the adaptation we’ve all been waiting for — Bambi.

Johnson appears as the title character, with his Furious 7 cast mates rounding out the rest of the beloved lineup — Vin Diesel (Taran Killam) as Thumper, Tyrese Gibson (Jay Pharoah) as Flower, and Michelle Rodriguez (Cecily Strong) as Faline, and it’s about to get real.

Check out the Bambi sequence here below, along with several others featuring The Rock.

‘SNL’: Chris Hemsworth Joins ‘Empire’; Raps For Iggy Azalea Show & more (Video)

SNL Chris Hemsworth joins Empire Leslie Jones

Thor star Chris Hemsworth hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live, where he portrayed his on-screen superhero counterpart in the hilarious skit Avengers News Report. While the Aussie actor is best known for his action roles, he killed it in the comedy department in sketches that had him joining the cast of FOX’s hip hop drama Empire; rapping on “The Iggy Azalea Show,” and as the part of the crew of the S.S. Orion, a starship captained by a chicken.

Check out the videos for the aforementioned skits and more from the SNL episode here below.

Hemsworth did a great job with this foray into live comedy and throughout the show the writers took advantage of the actor’s status as a buff, beautiful, irresistible star (see the American Express ad – it says it all), which made the part where he professes his love to the chicken insanely funny. They also were smart enough to get him shirtless at least once – oh, and to bring out the other Hemsworth brothers during the Monologue (brother Liam is a star of The Hunger Games). In “Empire Promo,” Hemsworth plays the token white guy, Chip, the new office manager — they totally, perfectly nailed the FOX drama (I loved the “dripity drop” part the best) and in “The Iggy Azalea Show,” he raps along with Kate McKinnon’s spot-on impression of Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea.
