Ryan Phillippe presided over a Saturday Night Live that found the actor gamely attempting to get laughs in a lot of gamey sketches.
The show signaled its intentions starting as early as the opening monologue, which featured Phillippe interacting with familiar characters such as Kristen Wiigâs Target store lady and Kenan Thompsonâs âWhat Up With That?â host DâAndre Cole.
One of the best moments of the night occurred near the top of the show. The âESPN Classicâ sketches with Jason Sudeikis and Will Forte are currently among my favorite recurring features. Forteâs clueless Greg Stink (âI do not know what any of those words meanâ) and Sudeikisâ silver-tongued Pete Twinkle are a terrific team, with Sudeikis always wringing fine vulgarity from a sponsor. This week, it was âTodayâs Sponge Contraceptive Device.â Among the slogans I can print: âPut a baby blocker in your lady locker!â Congrats to Phillippe for getting the character-name Olivia Newton Cougar Mellencamp.
