Will Ferrell is going to be returning to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend for his third hosting gig since leaving the show — and based on what we are seeing now, he is going to be just as silly as ever.
Accompanied by Jason Sudeikis in a new promo for the show, Ferrell runs in place, talks about getting punched in the face while he was asleep, and laughing about him suffering from short-term memory loss.
The challenge for Ferrell is that like any other “SNL” alum hosting the show, the expectations are inevitably going to be a little bit higher for him to tear the roof off the place. If he can only capture a little bit of the magic that Maya Rudolph brought to the show earlier this season in her return, “SNL” could be in for quite a night.
Usher is set to make this third appearance as musical guest later in the show, and we should have a new promo featuring him a little later in the week.
