So much for a cube of cheese! Emily Blunt appears game for a slice in her new Saturday Night Live promos, joining cast member Beck Bennett in a New York pizzeria before she hosts the show this weekend.

“Emily, I loved you in Girl on the Train,” says Bennett, buttering Blunt up.

“Thank you! You know, not a lot of people know this, but I, uh, also play the train,” says the actress, whose new movie debuted atop the box office.

Bennett doesn’t believe Blunt played a moving train, so she offers this explanation: “They had me in a motion-capture suit, and all the choo choos and the chugga chuggas are me.”

“Are you f—ing with me?” asks Bennett, who seems like he’s starting to believe her.

“Cho cho,” says Blunt, avoiding the question.

At another point, Blunt asks Bennett to stop pointing out that she’s hosting SNL and Bruno Mars is the musical guest. “Is this a date or a promo shoot?” he asks.

“It’s a promo shoot, and I’m married,” she says, referring to husband John Krasinski.


“This pizza is a prop,” she says, picking up the rubber slice and dropping it. That doesn’t stop him from taking a hard bite.

Check out the promos below. SNL airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
