Chris Pine Gets Freaky With Kate McKinnon in Wacky ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

The two stars boogie on down to this week’s musical guest, LCD Soundsystem

Chris Pine and Kate McKinnon let their freak flags fly in the promo for this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” dancing through Studio 8H to the sounds of LCD Soundsystem’s “Dance Yrself Clean.”

The band, which is touring this year shortly after announcing they had broken up, is this week’s musical guest on the NBC program, with Pine as host.

McKinnon is known for her absurd brand of physical comedy, so her goofing around with a fake pregnancy bump and a bag of Skittles doesn’t come as a shock.

In a strong indication that Pine will perform well on Saturday, the actor proves he’s game to look ridiculous as he hams it up alongside McKinnon. He’s also got some killer dance moves.

Pine’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” marks the second of four historic episodes in which NBC broadcasts the sketch comedy series live across all times zones in the United States.

The “Star Trek” star also shot a behind-the-scenes video for the show, shared on Twitter. “I couldn’t be more excited — it’s this Saturday,” he said. “The writers strike didn’t happen, so we’re going full steam ahead.”
