SNL Ed Norton

by on October 27, 2013

Another weekend, another new episode of Saturday Night Live. This week the incomparable Edward Norton finally graces the stage of Studio 8H to host SNL with musical guest Janelle Monae. Will the actors reputation for being a perfectionist serve him well with the “Not Ready For Prime Time Players”? He most certainly did. High points include the Wes Anderson themed trailer “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders”, “Halloween Candy” and “12 Years Not a Slave”. With a little help from expert host Alec Baldwin and a few surprises from “Her Royal Twerkness” Miley Cyrus, Edward Norton and the cast delivered one of the best episodes of Saturday Night Live so far this year that has some sketches with the potential to last as perrenial Halloween favorites. Check out all of the sketches here and comment below with your favorite.
