The new Saturday Night Live promos advertising Anna Kendrick’s hosting debut, which airs on April 5, showcase the actress’ musical skills and comic timing, and her confusion about the time and day the show actually takes place.
The Perfect Pitch star and SNL cast member Taran Killiam appear in the spots together, doing everything from singing to playing April Fools’ pranks.
The 35-year-old actress is told by Killam that since it is her first time hosting the show, she is given free rein to ask any questions she wants. She asks several questions about what day the show airs and when it tapes.
When asked what could be more fun than SNL, Kendrick makes some suggestions.
“Sumo wrestling in doughnut batter? A mansion full of monkey butlers? A tickle fight with puppies while I’m wearing a bikini made of bacon?” Kendrick replies.
It is a busy year for the actress, who is rearing up to film the sequel to Pitch Perfect later this year. She also appears in the film The Last 5 Years, and in the role of Cinderella in Into the Woods, both due out later this year.
The Up in the Air Oscar-nominated actress makes her SNL hosting debut April 5, and she will be joined by musical guest Pharrell, who she mentioned in a tweet last month when she joked about the hat he wore to the 2014 Grammy Awards.
