Chris Hemsworth and Kate McKinnon Go for the Dirty Dancing Lift in New ‘SNL’ Promos (VIDEO)
The latest promos for SNL trumpet the official hosting debut for Chris Hemsworth this Saturday night. But is Hemsworth really as normal as cast member Kate McKinnon assumes he is?
McKinnon seems to think Hemsworth is “a normal guy engineered in the future and sent back in time to save us,” but it turns out he’s about the furthest thing from. He can control the weather, for one, although that’s not what has McKinnon most excited. Rather, she’s stoked about her opportunity to finally try the iconic Dirty Dancing lift with someone. She and Hemsworth give it a go, and…well, it probably would have worked better if Hemsworth had ever actually seen Dirty Dancing before.
It’s an amusing series of vignettes building up Hemsworth’s debut as host of Saturday Night Live, and if he has as good a sense of humor about himself on the show as he does here, it’s likely to be a damn good show. But what do you think? Check out the promo videos below, and check out Hemsworth on SNL this Saturday (March 7) with musical guest Zac Brown Band.
