It’s a good sign that Adam Levine starred in “The Stand Off”, the sole highlight of Jeremy Renner‘s Saturday Night Live episode that featured Maroon 5 as musical guest. But it’s also not such good a sign that the majority of jokes in Levine’s promo for his hosting gig Saturday centered around The Voice.
Granted, the swivel chairs and supple chest of Christian Aguilera lend themselves to plenty of Voice-related humor. But fans of Levine, who watched the Maroon 5 frontman dabble in drama on this season of American Horror Story: Asylum, are curious to see how the burgeoning actor fairs in other genres. Can he do comedy? Based on his Voice zingers, yes, he can. But is it too much to ask for some non-reality TV material?
In fact, the funniest part of the promo comes when Levine criticizes cast member Bobby Moynihan‘s “Drunk Uncle” character. “Sober uncle would be just as funny, with a better message for the kids,” Levine deadpans. Stick to this material, Adam — for once, we don’t want to hear about your Voice.
