It’s been 12 whole years since we’ve seen Jamie Foxx unchained on Saturday Night Live. And considering the Oscar-winning multi-hyphenate star — who is such a fan of hyphens, he last hosted alongside Blink-182 and now boasts Ne-Yo as a musical guest — got his start on another famous sketch comedy series, In Living Color, it’s surprising he hasn’t become one of SNL‘s trusted mainstays.
But there’s still time. After all, despite the departure of stars like Kristen Wiig and its odd penchant for musical monologues, SNL has delivered a promising first half of its 38th season. And, if we have any luck, perhaps one of Foxx’s A-list Django Unchained co-stars — or pop culture-obsessed director, Quentin Tarantino — will stop by for a cameo. (If not them, we’ll settle for LaWanda.)
But will you be watching Saturday? Will Foxx be clever enough to win your affections? And will there be a Django/Jenga parody? Tune in Saturday night, and check back at Hollywood.com Sunday morning for Brian Moylan’s recap of the night’s best (and worst) sketches!
