Joseph Gordon-levitt - Joseph Gordon-Levitt Proves A Hit As SNL Host
Joseph Gordon-Levitt followed on from Seth MacFarlane's well-received appearance on the first episode of the new Saturday Night Live series with an equally impressive show of comic talent and timing.
The Dark Knight Rises star tickled funny bones across America with his two spoof beer commercial skits, in which he played the son of the 'Most Interesting Man in the World.' The two skits, spoofs of the popular Dos Equis adverts, featured Gordon-Levitt as the underachieving son promoting 'Tres Equis' and detailing his life as a man who is the polar opposite of his famous fictional father. Some of his 'achievements' included using fake names at Starbucks and dating a model (who in actual fact isn't a model but stared in commercial for her dad's car dealership) as well as being the proud owner five differently styled fedora hats. The character explained that Tres Equis is "one Equis more than my dad's beer, because he was never there for me. [It's] two parts Dos Equis, one part none of your business."
For the second skit, the deadbeat son is joined by his father (played by Jason Sudeikis) who berates his son for his disappointing exploits.
He didn't just do beer commercials though, as JGL also performed a Magic Mike spoof, complete with a bare chest and confetti canon. Also entertaining on the night was Brit folk revivalist Mumford and Sons who, as well as performing on the night, stared in a skit where they played as a Beatles tribute band.
