Will Forte has literally been waiting years for this moment.

Some background: In March, Seth Meyers revealed plans to introduce a new Late Night feature called “Second Chance Theatre.” The segment would highlight rejected SNL sketches, including a lost Jason Sudeikis vehicle called “Juggling Flyer” and Will Forte’s “Jennjamin Franklin.”
