Channeling their 'Zoolander 2' characters Derek and Hansel, they gave their opinions on the presidential candidates' fashion senses during the faux news segment 'Weekend Update'
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made a surprise appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ as their dim-witted characters from the Zoolander sequel, and gave their unique insights into the pressing political issues of the day.
The pair have reprised their roles as Derek Zoolander (Stiller) and Hansel (Wilson) for the long-awaited follow-up to the much loved 2001 original, which comes out on February 12th, and they came in character to visit the ‘SNL’ segment Weekend Update with Colin Jost and Michael Che on Saturday (February 6th), getting huge cheers as they made their way onstage.
However, their commentary on the presidential nomination races didn’t extend to much more than the candidates’ fashion senses, as they were asked about Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, Hilary Clinton and, of course, Donald Trump.

Ridiculous, over-the-top, but fully committed - that's the essence of SNL right there.
Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th anniversary this past week. Congratulations! The verdict? It was good enough. Like many other SNL episodes, this one was a 50/50 deal - some of the jokes fell flat, while others got just a passing laugh. There were zingers, but we probably won't be recycling jokes Christopher Walken's "only perscription is more cowbell" in a couple of years.
Happy 40th, Saturday Night Live!
Though re-visiting old sketches and characters was a welcome bit of nostalgia, of course. Tina Fey's Sarah Palin, holding a flute and wondering when the talent portion of the show would begin was a highlight. In the end, more often than not, the show was funny.

We will never be able to see 'The Hobbit' in the same way again.
Martin Freeman's acting career has been just as much an unpredictable a journey as his character Bilbo Baggins' Middle Earth quest in 'The Hobbit' series, but can you imagine his two most iconic roles joining together?
Martin Freeman unites The Office with The Hobbit
That's just what 'Saturday Night Live' did when the British actor took to guest hosting the show on Saturday (December 13th 2014). Before he stormed US film and TV with Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' and the FX series adaptation of the Coen brothers' 'Fargo', Martin Freeman was arguably best known for his likeable role as Tim Canterbury in Ricky Gervais' sitcom 'The Office'. So what happens when you put an ordinary office environment in Middle Earth?
