She does an impression of Katharine Hepburn auditioning for the role of Bugs Bunny in 'Space Jam'
Rachel Bloom is a woman of her word… and we’re grateful for that.
Earlier this week, Saturday Night Live posted a call for fans to tweet who they wanted to see as a “#SNLhost,” and Bloom’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend costar Donna Lynne Champlin nominated the CW show’s multi-talented star/creator/superwoman. “I could finally do the impression of Kate Hepburn auditioning for Space Jam that was on my SNL audition tape!” Bloom responded, later explaining that her impression involved Katharine Hepburn auditioning to play Bugs Bunny.
Thursday evening, EW posted about that exchange (as well as a few other celebs who responded to the SNL host hashtag) and expressed disappointment that a video hadn’t accompanied Bloom’s tweet… and the Poppy nominee responded to us via Twitter. “Ok ok @EW I’ll post the video when I get home tonight,” she promised.
And, sure enough, she did. And, sure enough, it’s magical.
Bloom’s 2012 audition wasn’t her only brush with SNL. She was once an intern for the show.
