This week’s all new “Saturday Night Live” will feature “Hunger Games” Josh Hutcherson as host with musical guest HAIM. While this season of SNL still hasn’t found its feet following the massive star departure, there is one silver lining. Billy Moynihan, who had proved himself before with characters like “drunk uncle”, is now battling Taran Killam for top billing on the show. Moynihan’s portrayal last week of crack smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford had echoes of Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin.
This week’s promo for the show feature Moynihan and Hutcherson poking fun at this weekend’s launch of the “Hunger Games” sequel.
This week should be interesting because Hutcherson is actually a pretty good actor. His work in “The Kids Are Alright” and the “Hunger Games” films has been solid. Would it be too much for a sketch with President Obama and Justin Bieber consoling each other over the rough times they are going through? Got a feeling Hutcherson could do a great Bieber. Also the guy looks to be 5’4 and yet you’d never know that in any of his movies. That’s talent.
