Willem Defoe At SNL, Crashes Will Forte Monologue

All set go- Saturday Night Live! Will Forte was ready to make his debut on SNL on January 22 but trouble came up. The unexpected error from show-runner Lorne Michaels arose when William Dafoe thought its was his week to perform.

A miscommunication happened from the show producer side. As William Dafoe, SNL was scheduled for 29 January. And came up towards the end of Will’s opening monologue, where he was being played off the stage with music. Ariana DeBose SNL Debut, Kate Joins Too

“I just want to take a minute to say how much this show has meant to me. I started my career here. It’s always supported me,” the MacGruber star said as the music started. Wait for a second, are you playing me off during my own monologue? I’ve waited 12 freaking years for this! Have you guys seen some of the idiots that have hosted this show?” he quipped, before offering to take a question from one person — Lorne.

“Alright, fine — I’ll take one question. You, sir!” he pointed out to the audience, picking Lorne. “I’m so sorry, Will — there’s been a mistake!” Lorne, who created SNL, explained with Willem by his side. “Hey!” a confused Willem, rocking a black short, greeted Will. Will then said, “Wait…but Willem Dafoe? You’re hosting next week!”

Previously, Kristen Wiig also stood up in support of her friend Will Forte. “Tonight, it’s all about me!” he said just as the former SNL member popped up behind him. “Well, I’m so excited to me here…I flew in for this!” she said to Will, to suggest maybe it was “not a good time”.
