Saturday Night Live went Twilight Zone for its Adam Sandler promo last week, so it’s only fitting that this week’s guest host Emma Thompson inspired something more Masterpiece Theatre-y. The real treat, though, is Kate McKinnon going full-on starstruck stalker.
The new promo starts with the SNL cast member leading the star of the upcoming feature Late Night through the halls of Studio 8H to what will be an unusually well-appointed dressing room. Leather-bound books (lots of encyclopedias, no doubt a dusty find from some neglected corner of a 30 Rock prop room), slippers, one of those little servant bells, framed art, a Victrola, a working fireplace and three working Jonases. All courtesy of a slightly crazed McKinnon and set to a very Masterpiece tune.
Thompson hosts SNL this Saturday, May 11, with musical guest Jonas Brothers. It’s Season 44’s penultimate episode, with Paul Rudd returning for the fourth time to host the May 18 season finale, with musical guest DJ Khaled.
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays live at 11:30 pm ET/8:30 pm PT; replays 11:30 pm PT, on NBC. Check out the Thompson promo above.
