SNL Video: 'Serious Actor' Steve Carell Studies Up for His Return to Comedy

SNL Video: 'Serious Actor' Steve Carell Studies Up for His Return to Comedy
Steve Carell will pay Studio 8H a visit when he hosts Saturday Night Live on Nov. 17 — but judging by the sketchfest’s newest promo, Carell’s comedy skills are a little rusty.

In the teaser embedded above, SNL cast members Aidy Bryant and Chris Redd ask Carell if he’s ready to return to comedy, given that his post-Office career has consisted mostly of dramatic, “serious actor” films.

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Liked Trump’s ‘Personality,’ but Didn’t Know His Policies

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Liked Trump’s ‘Personality,’ but Didn’t Know His Policies
Kim Kardashian West is perfectly fine disagreeing politically with her husband, Kanye West. That being said, she doesn’t think his recent visit to the White House to converse with President Donald Trump was particularly political, at least for West. Rather, it was something that came from his heart.

At Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit, when CNN commentator Van Jones implied that Kardashian West and her husband have different politics, the reality TV star objected.

“I feel like he’s very misunderstood and the worst communicator,” Kardashian West said. “But, when we talk about it, we have very similar politics.

‘Scrubs’ Reboot? ‘Stan Against Evil’ Star John C. McGinley Is Ready – Podcast
Add John C. McGinley to the “yes” column should “Scrubs” ever be revisited on TV. If creator Bill Lawrence is in, so is McGinley. “I love Billy, so if Billy’s doing it, [I am],” said McGinley, who recently visited the Turn It On podcast and current star of IFC horror comedy “Stan Against Evil.” “I’d be very surprised if some variation of that doesn’t realize fruition.”

McGinley said he believed the show’s other cast members would be in — as long as it wasn’t a traditional, 22-episode order. “I don’t think it would look like a season,” he said, noting that most of the “Scrubs” alums are busy with other projects. “I think it would be something different… I don’t know what that looks like, however. A two-hour movie? That would be fun.”

Of course, in this age of reboots, reunions, and remakes, McGinley admitted he
