Woody Harrelson Pulled Hosting Duties for Saturday Night Live’s Season Premiere
Saturday Night Live made its Season 45 return last night, and ringing in the sketch show’s new spate of episodes was Esquire September cover star Woody Harrelson, who pulled hosting duties for the night.
“I’ve been working for a long time, and I’d like to tell you I’m the same old Woody you know and love,” said Harrelson in his opening monologue, which found him shouting out his appearance on Esquire’s cover. “But never before in the 34 years since the mantle of fame was thrust upon these over-broad shoulders have I been what I am now: a fashionista. I mean, look at me—I’m a damn cover boy.”
Harrelson turned in great performances throughout the night, offering an effective turn as a Joe Biden who’s prone to “[hugging] you from behind” and an ‘80s dad with a business mullet who won’t put down down his giant cellphone and talk to his kid.
But he earned some of his biggest laughs in the best sketch of the evening, which found him playing farm hand Hank, who works at an apple picking farm “located in the part of upstate New York that has Confederate flags.”
Esquire’s September cover star Woody Harrelson pulled hosting duties for Saturday Night Live’s season premiere.
“I will take you to the one tree that’s working this year,” Harrelson promised, “Our apples are best during a very specific window of time, and whenever you come, you just missed it.”
If that’s not appealing enough, the farm also had a petting zoo—or, as Harrelson put it, “We found some animals and now they’re in prison.”
