Gratuitous Search Term Bait of the Day: JGL on the GG

Going to go a little outside the box with this today’s search term, “jgl snl,” which, of course, refers to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hosting turn on SNL from the 2009-2010 season.  But what we’re interested in right now is not JGL’s sketch comedy work, but, rather, his appearance on last night’s Golden Globes.  Or should we say his appearance during his appearance on last night’s Golden Globes.  We watched him introduce the clip reel for Inception and remarked to ourselves that his head looked extremely large.  Or his body looked extremely small.  Or a little of both.  Either way, the proportions seemed off.  And we found later that we were not alone, our thoughts articulated perfectly by Videogum:

We can’t knock his hustle, but clearly it wasn’t just us.  But, hey, YOU DECIDE.

And, guess what, this does tie into “snl” after all, because we had the exact same thoughts about Paul Rudd when he recently briefly appeared in-between Paul McCartney performances on hosted SNL.  And, trust us, we’re not trying to be mean here.  There are very few dudes we like more than Paul Rudd (see the previous post).  But, like JGL, he just looked a little…off.

Somebody get those guys a grilled chicken and fresh mozzarella sandwich!  (because we’re eating one of those right now and it’s really good)

Hanks, Hanks, a Million Times Hanks

We only caught about 1/3 of the Golden Globes last night (which, judging from what we saw, might have been 1/6 too much), but we were fortunate enough to catch the requisite Tom Hanks appearance.  And, even if we had seen the whole show, we’re certain that Hanks’ minute and a half on-screen was the highlight, as he brought more energy and laughter in his 90 seconds than the whole show did in 6 hours (or whatever).  And he did it all without a Mel Gibson joke!  The guy is just good.  Really good.  And we love and appreciate him more every time.

Now if we could just get Peter Scolari up there with him next year.

Happy MLK Day!

Did you see SNL this past weekend?   It included a sketch starring Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah (more on both of those later).  Remember the last time two black guys had more than one line in a sketch?  Well, here it is:

(we love how Horatio Sanz can’t even deliver three lines with a straight face.  Come back Horatio!  And bring the 80lbs you lost!)

By the way, what is up with Topher Grace?
