At this point, who wouldn’t want to be mistaken for charming, beautiful Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence? Kevin Hart certainly didn’t mind when Jason Sudeikis mistook him for the Silver Linings Playbook star (not, as one might expect, Chris Tucker) in the promo video for his gig as Saturday Night Live host this weekend.
In fact, the actor/comedian seems to want to be as closely associated with Oscar royalty as possible. The Think Like A Man star, who is ready to follow in fellow recent SNL host footsteps like Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, and Christoph Waltz, even has a teary-eyed speech ready to go.

While Hart may not be Oscar material just yet, he’ll try out his brand of humor on SNL, which — if this clip is any indication — involves a lot of sight gags like the classic Totem Pole Trench Coat (complete with Bobby Moynihan), being scared of a basketball, and some silly dancing. (Hey, if this means Sudeikis will do his “What Up With That?” dance, we’re all for it). Check out the entire clip here:
Hart will host SNL on Saturday March 2 with musical guests Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. (You know, those guys who interrupt your otherwise pleasant Spotify listening experience with a snippet of their actively terrible hit “Thrift Shop”).
