Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake take over Saturday's 'SNL'; here are their best sketches (VIDEO)
Two of our all-time favorite people are teaming up for Saturday’s Saturday Night Live: Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. Former SNL castmember and soon-to-be Tonight Show host Fallon is returning to the SNL studios to host the final show of the season, and Timberlake, himself a five-time host, is the musical guest. (Fallon hosted the Christmas show two years ago to glorious effect.) The promos for the show are out, and are suitably hilarious, though JT is missing for some reason (but certainly not in spirit!).
Fallon and Timberlake have been working together in the world of sketch comedy for years now, so we’ve got to think Justin will join Jimmy for a few sketches Saturday. We hope so, the two have great chemistry. Here are some of our favorite things the funny BFFs have done together:
History of Rap
One of the guys’ most classic collaborations, they’ve done a handful of History of Rap segments together now on Fallon’s late-night show. The first is still our fave.
We wrote about this one a while ago in our list of the five best bits from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, but it’s worth repeating because we still laugh every time we watch it.
Barry Gibb Talk Show
The boys started doing this sketch all the way back in 2003, when Fallon was still an SNL castmember, and it's since become one of their most popular bits. Fallon plays Barry Gibb and Timberlake his brother Robin; both have very high-pitched voices. The real Robin Gibb has died (of cancer in 2012) since the last time they did this sketch; will they reprise it Saturday?
Probably their least silly sketch yet. Still hilarious.
