‘SNL’ returns Saturday for its 43rd season.
This weekend’s Saturday Night Live host Ryan Gosling and musical guest Jay-Z are reunited in the sketch comedy show’s newest promo videos and it feels so good.
Well, pretty good at least. While Gosling teases the season 43 premiere, Hova plays the straight man and remains pretty stoic throughout. In the first of the two skits, the actor asks his comrade how excited he’s going to be, “so I know how excited I should be.” The response he gets is chill, borderline cold.
But in the next sketch, Jay livens up just a little bit — not that we should expect to see the two in a buddy comedy anytime soon — when Gosling mentions he watched the hip-hop icon perform at Coachella.
“I remember,” Jay-Z replies softly, before cracking up at Gosling’s question: “You do?”
