Julia Louis-Dreyfus Drinks Spit in New ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promo (Video)

“Veep” star set to host NBC sketch series this Saturday

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is willing to go that extra mile for “Saturday Night Live.”

The actress appeared in a new promo for her April 16 appearance on the NBC sketch series with Bobby Moynihan, who warned Louis-Dreyfus that the coffee she was about to drink had spit in it. She bravely drank it anyway, noting, “I gotta tell you, the spit really isn’t that bad.”

Louis-Dreyfus is well known for her time on the classic sitcom “Seinfeld,” but she currently stars in HBO’s political satire “Veep.” The show won five Emmys in 2015, including Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Louis-Dreyfus for her role as Selina Meyer.

“Saturday Night Live” airs at 11:30 p.m./10:30c on NBC.
