Leslie Jones pulls Kevin Hart into a group hug in SNL teaser
Saturday Night Live is handing the reins over to Kevin Hart for its final episode of 2017.
The comedian is set to host the venerable sketch series for the third time overall, and for the first time in nearly three years. He’ll be on-hand to promote his new film, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which will no doubt have some hoping that his costar, Dwayne Johnson, makes a surprise appearance.
For now, though, Hart is getting amped up for his hosting gig with musical guests the Foo Fighters and cast member Leslie Jones by his side. In the new promo for his appearance, Jones can hardly contain her excitement at Hart hanging around for the show’s Christmas episode, pulling him and the band into a big, loving group hug. “Man, it’s Christmas!” she enthuses. “Come in here, man.” She gets a little harsh, though: “You got my neck!” Hart complains.
In a second take, Hart gets a little awkward while promoting his appearance. Watch the clip above to find out why, and check out Hart’s SNL episode this Saturday.
