Andy Samberg returns to the show that made him when he hosts the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” this week. His old friend and cast-mate, Kenan Thompson, joined him for this week’s promos on the rooftop garden, which Thompson may or may not have planted.
There was definitely a lot of energy in the air, as the two danced, did yoga, and even frolicked at one point. Samberg had a little bit of fun tooting his own horn by putting up a shiny, gold graphic proclaiming him a Golden Globe winner. He made a graphic for Thompson as well, but it was pretty lame in comparison.
Thompson got his revenge later, though, by pretending to not know who Samberg was. By the end of the promo session, the guys had become literally unintelligible. Maybe it was all that running around in the sunshine. It did look beautiful on that rooftop.
Thompson joined the cast in 2003, which was actually two years before Samberg came on board in 2005. Samberg left in 2012, and took the starring role in Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” this past season, for which he won the aforementioned Golden Globe.
This will be Samberg’s first time hosting “Saturday Night Live.” He’s joined by musical guest St. Vincent.
