‘SNL’ Promos: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Will Cut Himself in Half — VIDEO


Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proved he will do anything for our viewing pleasure. Sing, dance, sport an uncomfortably bad hairstyle for an impressive amount of time. So we only expect to see his penchant for entertainment to continue during his Saturday Night Live hosting stint this Saturday. After all, last time he hosted in 2009, Gordon-Levitt attempted Donald O’Connor‘s “Make ‘Em Laugh” backflip on Studio 8H’s tiny soundstage. How will he top the musical moment? According to new SNL promos, he will cut himself in half.

Impressive, yes, but we would prefer to see Scooper, Gordon-Levitt’s 2079 Looper spin-off about picking up dog poop. How very green.

Gordon-Levitt is hosting SNL alongside musical guests Mumford & Sons, so grab your oversized rimless glasses, your battered copy of On the Road, and ask Siri if it’s raining, because this will be one hipster affair.
