Liev Schreiber is hosting this week’s Saturday Night Live. SNL dropped a promo for the episode and, man, it is bizarre. The Ray Donovan star will be joined by rapper Lil Wayne for the fifth episode of the 44th season. This will be the usually-serious actor’s first time hosting the show.
The show released two promos. One is the standard set up for the weekly promo. Schreiber, Wayne and SNL star Kate McKinnon joke around in a cavalcade of mini set ups.
However, the other promo is one you have to watch to believe. The video shows Mikey Day, Leslie Jones, and Schreiber jumping rope on the stage. Jones and Day both make up charming and childlike rhymes as they jump. When it is Schreiber’s turn, he says he is friends with a ghost before the ghost possesses him. His eyes turn red and he speaks in a demonic voice. Finally, his head starts spinning around, horrifying his playmates. With his head on backward, his voice changes back to normal and he says, “See you guys at rehearsal.”
The video is surprisingly unsettling for the comedy show and far different from their usual promos.
Watch the video here and check back in on Sunday for our SNL recap to see how Schreiber did:
