J.K. Simmons hosted Saturday Night Live on January 31, 2015 with musical guest, D’Angelo.
While J.K. Simmons is a familiar face, for those wondering who he is and why he would appear on Saturday Night Live, we have some background information on the famous actor. Simoons, who just received an Oscar nomination for Whiplash, has appeared on hit shows such as Oz and most well known for the famous jingle, “We are Farmer,” the commercial for his ads for Farmers Insurance.
We have all the highlights from the episode, including Simmons’ Whiplash-inspired monologue with a cameo by Fred Armisen, a commercial for the Totino’s Super Bowl Activity Pack for Women, a lost alternate ending to Casablanca, a 100% accurate Jay-Z biopic starring Mike O’Brien as Jay-Z and Jason Sudeikis as Kanye West, and much more.
One of the most talked about skits from Saturday Night Live’s episode with J.K.Simmons is the Super Bowl Shut Down Cold Open, where Seattle Seahawks players Richard Sherman, played by Jay Pharaoh and Marshawn Lynch, played by Kenan Thompson, discuss Deflate Gate and interview Coach Pete Carroll, played by Taran Killam. Sherman is famous for running his mouth and coming up with some interesting comments, while Marshawn Lynch refuses to speak to the media and has been taking some heavy fines for his refusal.
Also, make sure to catch D’Angelo’s performances of “Really Love” and “The Charade” below.
