Late Saturday night, Edward Norton appeared as host of Saturday Night Live (SNL) and was included in several funny and spooky Halloween skits; the news of Edward Norton appearing on SNL has created a ‘Net Buzz Sunday morning. This was Edward Norton’s first time hosting SNL and even though he really isn’t known for his clever comedian skits, he did very well on the show.
In the opening monologue, Edward Norton takes on Woody Allen in the funny opening of the SNL show Saturday night. See the video to the left for a trailer-like preview of Norton appearing as Owen Wilson. Norton does seem to have Wilson’s slight laid back accent down. Entertainment Weekly reported that this was the best sketch of the night. Alec Baldwins voice appears as the narrator of the short trailer.
Both Alec Baldwin and Miley Cyrus showed up during the opening monologue to give some much needed tips to Edward Norton. Baldwin has hosted the show over two dozen times, and Cyrus has not. There were several Halloween themed skits this year.
The writers on SNL had a two week break and they seemed to come back with more SNL sketches than usual. The SNL show also included a Weekend Update sketch.
