It's Jessica Chastain vs. Kate McKinnon in new SNL promo
Forget Batman v Superman, Captan America vs. Iron Man, Alien vs. Predator, Kramer vs. Kramer, and the rest of them. Jessica Chastain is rumbling with Kate McKinnon in the new promo for Saturday Night Live — at least until she realizes it’s Kyle Mooney who’s her real enemy.
As Chastain readies herself to host the late-night sketch comedy series this Saturday, the Molly’s Game Golden Globe nominee hears a cackle from the shadows. It’s McKinnon, tapping her Hillary Clinton laugh.
“Chastain, funny seeing you here,” the Emmy-winning comedian says.
“I’m hosting, you know that. Saturday’s my night,” the actress responds.
The two trade in trash talk as the camera circles Studio 8H. Chastain taunts that she has “a killer Hillary impression,” “and Jeff Sessions and Kellyanne,” while McKinnon says she can impersonate Molly from Molly’s Game. If this promo is any indication of how Chastain will perform as host, we’re in for a great night this weekend.
The ladies laugh off their feud when they realize Chastain doesn’t have beef with McKinnon. That’s when her true nemesis emerges: “Mooney!”
Troye Sivan will serve as musical guest for the next SNL, while Will Ferrell follows Chastain as host of the Jan. 27 episode.
