“Saturday Night Live” Pulls Out All the Stops: Dan Aykroyd, Steve Martin, Candice Bergen Join Justin Timberlake, Jay Z


Quite a night on “Saturday Night Live”: host Justin Timberlake brought Jay Z to rap in “Suit and Tie.” Andy Samberg came back to do a skit with Timberlake, as well as guest stars Dan Aykroyd and Steve Martin. Candice Bergen, Paul Simon, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Tom Hanks, and Alec Baldwin also return for sketch about five time hosts. Has Timberlake really hosted the show 5 times? He’s looser on “SNL” than in his own concert– the comedy show brings out the best in him, that’s for sure. Timberlake begins a week of promoting his “20/20 Experience” album on NBC. He’ll appear five nights in a row on Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night.

Keep refreshing…
