Will Kerry Washington and Saturday Night Live be two great tastes that taste great together? We won’t know for sure until this weekend — but in the meantime, please feast on Washington’s new SNL promos.

They’re basically three minutes of the Scandal star playing the straight woman to Taran Killam’s loud buffoonery, though Washington does get a few moments to shine (“BUCK UP, TARAN!”). Let’s just hope that the show itself gives the actress more to do than stand around looking pretty. (Remember the great January Jones debacle of ’09?) Also: Killam does a pretty good Eminem impression, albeit a bit too Beavis-esque.
