Edward Norton Gets a Little Help From Miley Cyrus for his SNL Monologue
Posted on October 27, 2013
Edward Norton hosted Saturday Night Live and he did a great job. We always think of him as being such a serious dramatic actor, but he really can do comedy and totally commits. In this monologue he gets a little help from Alec Baldwin and Miley Cyrus. Alec has a new show on MSNBC and Miley is going on tour so they thought they'd get a plug in for their projects. Norton showed off his talents for impersonations, doing a very funny Woody Allen and a decent Ian McKellan as Gandalf. Norton poked a bit of fun at his own image joking that he was first asked to host in 2000, but being a method actor, he needed 13 years to prepare properly for the show. But Baldwin had the best zinger. He was giving Ed advice about being a host and the effect it might have on his career saying, "I was worried the first time I hosted. It was 1991 and I was a huge movie star. And now, 15 times later, I have my own show on MSNBC."
