Chris Pine, Kate McKinnon Celebrate ‘SNL’ Return With Trippy New Promo
SNL Season 42 was looking a bit touch-and-go with the looming Writers’ Strike, but thankfully, Jimmy Fallon won’t be the last of this season’s Not-Ready-For-Primetime-But-Technically-Primetime-in-LA Players. Here’s May host Chris Pine and Kate McKinnon playing camera tricks to celebrate.
NBC released the first official promo for Star Trek and Wonder Woman star Pine’s SNL debut, featuring he and Kate McKinnon playing around with camera perspective and editing throughout the SNL studio. Louis C.K. may not have had patience for these esoteric promos, but they’re delightful here.
Pine will host the May 6 show with musical guest LCD Soundsystem, with subsequent weeks bringing back Melissa McCarthy with Haim, and closing the year with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Katy Perry. Something tells us the political side will have plenty to chew on over the next episodes, as well.
You can check out the full SNL promo above, and prepare to go live coast-to-coast once again this coming weekend.
