'SNL' Promo Explores Whether 'Serious Actor' Steve Carell Is Ready to Do Comedy Again
"Saturday Night Live" is bringing back Steve Carell to host for the first time in a decade, and the question is: Is he ready?
NBC has revealed the promo for Carell's upcoming "SNL" episode, and it jokingly explores whether he's still got it. In the video, Carell himself has doubts, and he has to get his "instrument" ready. That takes a lot of balled-up sheets of paper, awkward impressions, and time in front of the mirror.
We're not sure about their final concept for him (read: They've got better ideas, right?), but we're looking forward to Carell returning as host. This will be his third time doing the job; he previously did it in once in 2005 and then again in 2008.
Carell's episode will be broadcast live on Nov. 17, with British singer-songwriter Ella Mai serving as the musical guest. "SNL" airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on both coasts on NBC.
