The Hilarious Jeremy Renner Shirtless Sketch That Didn't Make the "SNL" Cut

I was hard on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live" host, Jeremy Renner, because it seemed from the sketches we were provided that the actor had considerably limited range when it comes to comedy.

I stand corrected.

There were two sketches that didn't make the show this weekend, but NBC has blessed us with the dress rehearsals as though to say, "See, it could've been a good show." The first is a Thanksgiving sketch in which Renner did what I had wanted him to do more of in the other sketches: Completely throw himself into it. Admittedly, much of the sketch doesn't work, but when Renner is showing his loony-bits, it is absolutely hilarious.

Meanwhile, the guys over on Uproxx have some sick fascination with Guy Fieri, which is the only reason why I knew who he was before the NYTimes reviewed his restaurant last week. In a "Weekend Update" segment that didn't make the final cut, Bobby Moynihan does a spectacular Fieri impression with a sketch responding to the review that probably should've been included instead of the Katt Williams segment.

    What turns me off about SNL is the dead-eyed look that everyone took on post-Jimmy Fallon as they relied more and more on the prompters to remember their lines than actually trying to improv the scene they're in. The window exchange with Jeremy Renner has him looking forward while his wife in the sketch is looking to the right. wth?

    Neither of these skits were remotely funny. The fat guy in the weekend update bit has never uttered a funny line, ever, and Renner just tried the Will Ferrel theory, he got naked and yelled, and that wasn't funny 90% of the time ferrel did it, and it's never funny when someone else does it.

    Huh, I already knew I wanted to watch an entire episode of Kate McKinnon being hilarious, but now I'm willing to throw Renner in the mix with her too. I knew he was a true goob!

    I really wanted him to end that with: "You know I'm gonna' live forev"

  • AudioSuede

    Why would you shit on the Kat WIlliams bit? It was not only a great impression, but a hilarious exchange.

    Sometimes, Rowles, I just don't know.

    Am I the only one who thinks Vanessa Bayer is completely adorable?

  • Bert_McGurt

    Good lord, that header picture makes him look like Rob Schneider with a dye-job.

  • Javier

    you could say then that SNL is...

    CURSE YOU NBC AND YOUR LOC-BLOCKING!!! Canadians are people too and we deserve your respect. Haven't you seen Argo?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yeah. You furriners are missing out. He's pretty funny in it.

    Granted, he's funny being intense crazy, so not sure if that's showing the range DR's looking for, but it's pretty funny nonetheless. As is the Guy Fieri response.

    Try media hint
