NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”returns this week with a new episode. Jamie Foxx, doing the Django Unchained promotional thang is set to host with first time musical guest Ne-Yo, and we ‘ve got the promo reel to share (thanks to SNL). Foxx and Jason Sudeikis are getting into the holiday spirit – or is that Christmas Magic? Or maybe some of that ‘ole Black Magic:
Since his Oscar winning role in Ray, Foxx has focused on drama and action, not to mention his musical career and he seems “intense” all the time. It’s easy to forget that that he began his career as a comedian.
Here’s a sketch from the SNL Archives featuring Foxx in his first appearance in 2000. It goes on too long but the premise is funny and it shows the spark Foxx the entertainer used to have. (If he’d brought that to Law Abiding Citizen, it might have been a different movie.)
“Saturday Night Live”with host Jamie Foxx airs Saturday December 8 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
