I didn’t catch all of Saturday Night Live last night, but thanks to DVR & Hulu I was able to fast forward to the important parts. I mean in essence the entire episode was decent, but it’s weird for me to envision Daniel Radcliffe beyond his role as Harry Potter. In my mind he will always be Harry Potter, the same way Robert Pattinson will always be Edward Cullen from Twilight.
It can be hard breaking out of a character, but Radcliffe did show a different side of him I haven’t really seen before. It was great seeing him play some comedic roles, and he seemed to fit into the cast chemistry of each sketch. It wasn’t like he was out of place; his acting was believable and worked for the tasks at hand.
Some of the sketches I found funny were the usual Target Lady who is horrible at her job as a cashier and always gets distracted, Spin the Bottle, and the Ricky Gervais Promos. Now as far as the Spin the Bottle sketch, it’s not what you think. It’s this hilarious sketch in which every time Radcliffe spins the bottle he ends up having to kiss a homeless man instead of the beautiful girl he has a crush on. It’s so funny seeing him never get to kiss the girl, but instead always kissing a random homeless guy. It’s gross, but hilarious!
That sketch was the funniest out of all of them, but I really did enjoy watching the Ricky Gervais promos. He is always such a jerk at the Golden Globe Awards, so you know SNL had to make fun of it. I’m not sure if he is really that much of a jerk in real life, but I do know seeing him on Curb Your Enthusiasm and being such a jerk to Larry David made me be like, “Hmm, I don’t like this guy. He was mean to Larry David.” LOL I know it was scripted, but still! He just has this vibe every time I see him on television that makes me not like him. So when SNL did the promos I found it pretty funny because he is always being so pompous and outright rude, but the way SNL did it was too funny!
Of course there were some other sketches from last night’s episode, but I don’t have much to say about them. But check them out for yourselves below. I thought the Headz Up App was funny too, and I could totally relate to it! Man texting and walking can be so dangerous, but if an App like that existed then I’m sure everyone would use it. LOL. We’ve all had times in which you almost walk into a wall because your busy sending a text. Then you try to play it off and act normal, even though everyone around you is glancing over at you. SMH…a mess!
But like I said, check out the videos below. What did ya think of Daniel Radcliffe’s acting? It’s different from Harry Potter, but it’s pretty good! He’s actually good at comedy!
