Embedded below are the promos Anna Faris recorded with Kenan Thompson for this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” which she’ll be hosting with musical guest Drake (the worst rapper since Ja Rule, and arguably worse because Ja Rule could at least scowl believably).
Although the promos are painfully unfunny (thanks, Kenan!), I still have hope that it will be a good episode, because Anna Faris is fantastic. She might be the best big-screen comedic actress of the last ten years, only she’s never been in anything truly great because most Hollywood writers have no idea that women are allowed to be funny. Sometimes when I get bored, I imagine Knocked Up with Faris in Katherine Heigl’s role, and the movie becomes 300 times better because the female lead is witty and likable instead of a sour-faced harpy.
