Seth Meyers Unveils Rejected SNL Sketch With Trans Character 'Jennjamin Franklin' - VIDEO


As part of his “Second Chance Theatre” bit, Late Night with Seth Meyers performed a rejected Saturday Night Live sketch about Jason Sudeikis’ date with a transgender person named Jennjamin Franklin.

Jennjamin Franklin is genderqueer in 18th century garb who commonly gets mistaken for male actors even though Jennjamin is a capable dancer and romancer. It’s easy to see why the sketch got rejected, but it manages to be absurd without making either Jennjamin or Jennjamin's date the butt of the joke.

Watch the sketch AFTER THE JUMP…

'Gay Couple From Maine' Discuss Election On 'SNL:' VIDEO


Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" segment covered the historic marriage equality wins in Maryland, Washington and Maine last night by inviting a "gay couple from Maine" — played by Bill Hader and Fred Armisen — to discuss how they met, the differences between Maine and glitzy New Hampshire and their romantic engagement.

In other SNL news, hostess with the mostest Anne Hathaway's monologue evolved into a spoof on "One Day," a track from her forthcoming film adaptation of Les Misérables, and the actress also had a pretty genius turn doing "the Sloppy Swish" in a bizarre yet oddly addictive digital short called "The Legend of Mokiki."

And she made great "roach warehouse" in the "Girlfriends" sketch, while getting deep in fictional CIA agent Carrie Mathison's insanity during a send-up of Homeland. But it may be Hathaway's revival of her Katie Holmes impression alongside Kate McKinnon as Ellen DeGeneres.

Check out clips of those sketches, save for the Holmes impression, which isn't yet online, as well as two performances by musical guest Rihanna, AFTER THE JUMP. Oh, I've also included the cold open in which Jason Sudeikis plays a sad Mitt Romney.

As Dennis Ayers notes: "The really good news is, even though the scene is played for laughs (and who knows what follows after the clip), it really doesn't seem to be going for the clichéd gay panic punchline."
