The “Moneyball” actor, with cast member Bill Hader, does the usual silly gags in the promos: funny voices, not so subtle promotion for his project, jokes about elevator operators that are probably ghosts. Nothing that special.
But, if the writing is there, this weekend’s show should be a success. Hill’s an actual comedic actor (a good start) and his 2008 hosting gig definitely had its funny moments, including a sketch where he played a precocious six-year-old who speaks like a Jewish comedian.
Watch the promos, and two clips from Hill’s last “SNL” appearance, below.
