“Saturday Night Live” observes some magical moments in this week. Most of the viewers have predicted that Marvel and “In The Heart of the Sea” actor Chris Hemsworth would have been the central attraction during this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” but it totally amazed everyone as Will Ferrell returned to NBC’s long-running series to reprise George W Bush, one of his most remarkable act.
It is not been long that since Will Ferrell has burst up on SNL to play George W Bush, although the actor and comedian has made a name for himself playing the character elsewhere. Back in 2009, he played the character in the Broadway play “You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush”, which also aired live on HBO.
George W. Bush has declared that he will run 2016 presidential race and Will Ferrell appeared as the former president to share the news this week on “Saturday Night Live.” Ferrell made Bush’s case by mocking the leading GOP candidates as a less-than-flattering photo of each one appeared on the screen.
Ferrell saved Jeb Bush for last, with George W. Bush wishing that his brother would have asked his opinion before adding the exclamation point to his name. The show was hosted by Chris Hemsworth, with Chance the Rapper as musical guest.
Beyond Will Ferrell, Saturday’s “Saturday Night Live” episode also featured some other highlights, including Hemsworth defending the need for “Thor 3” while dressed as a female character and a second sketch spoofing those who collect “Star Wars” toys. All in all, it was a fine episode, and it’s not even the last one fans will get before winter interval.
