Joseph Gordon-Levitt Strips, Cross Dresses For 'SNL': VIDEOS


Joseph Gordon-Levitt gave it his all while hosting Saturday Night Live last night, and it paid off. But how could it not when the actor opened with a glorious Magic Mike spoof that brought as many laughs as it did skin?

Another bit involved Gordon-Levitt discussing the decidedly fabulous "finer things" with Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson, and one of the final skits had the thespian portraying a masculine love lorn lass named Evelyn. What could have been an offensive few minutes was actually exceedingly well done, as you'll see from the clip AFTER THE JUMP.

I've also included "The Finer Things" clip AFTER THE JUMP, as well as a pretty make-shift recording of Gordon-Levitt's opener. When a better one becomes available I'll switch it out.

  1. They did a good job last night, and he is not hard to look at.

  2. He grew up awfully nice, didn't he? Well thrown together.

  3. Yes indeed, he's all grown up and looking good ;-)

  4. His innate talent stood out way back in the otherwise-unfunny 'Third Rock From the Sun.' How nice he's become superskilled, very handsome, and an LGBT ally. In that 'daughter' skit he delivered off-the-wall greatness - touching and comedic, both.

  5. Am I the only one that feels like a dirty old man lusting over him? I remember him as a little kid in Dark Shadows and Roseanne! He has be one HOT.

  6. Actually I thought Third Rock was pretty amusing and smetimes even moving in its eccentric little way. And we got to watch J G-L grow up. He's a good actor, but the SNL opening in particular and the guy from Receiving bit just didn't work for me. The rapper one was OK, but the black guys carried it with J G-L holding up his end.

  7. "The Finer Things" clip had me snorting it was so hysterical!!!!!!

    JGL has turned into an all around great actor/entertainer...

  8. I always liked JGL skinny... but damned if he isn't getting buff... and it looks good.

    He has that wonderful kind of attractiveness where he's a clear 10, but in such a way that exudes a boyish charm and approach-ability. He's basically perfect.

    To top it all off, he's one of the most likable and talented people in his entire industry. If I had to pick a fantasy celebrity crush, he's easily the pick -- and I don't think he'd mind :p

  9. Bobby Moynihan steals the opening scene...

  10. @Todd, I thought so too, when he rips off his vest and has another vest on underneath. Oh Bobby!

  11. In Canada, Global has stepped up to ... do, uh ... umm ... well nothing at all, actually.

    But you have to go to them if you want to watch NBC's SNL clips.

  12. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is loaded with talent. He is perhaps the most versatile entertainer in show business. And as others have said, he is easy on the eyes.

  13. the one modelling the handbag in Finer, i love that nice thick booty and thick thighs.

  14. I JGL big time. The opening was so funny...I couldn't believe they did that, and it worked. He is one of the few actors out there that make me immediately consider seeing a film that he's in.

  15. Maybe I'm in the minority, but as much as I love JGL even he can't save an episode of SNL for me. It's not funny. At all. I might smile a few times at best, and last night was no exception.

  16. In that Tres Equis (XXX) clip, I detected a hint of Asian in him. Is he part Asian? Or was he just f#$%^& in the ass by Daniel Dae Kim before the show?

  17. Last nite was one of the best SNL's in a long, long, time. I actually laughed! I hope they keep it up because SNL has become tres tired.

  18. Bravo, according to his Wikipedia entry, JGL is part of a Jewish family, although "not strictly religious."

    And you shouldn't have mentioned that fantasy involving him and Daniel Dae Kim, that is too hot for words!

  19. Better quality opening monologue clip:

    Info menu with the embed code is on the right-hand side.

  20. Of course he is Jewish. And so are Natalie Portman, Logan Lerman, Mila Kunis, etc.
