“The SNL pre-premiere pre-party,” McKinnon tells Robbie, who will emcee the proceedings in Studio 8H this Saturday night (11:30, NBC), kicking off Season 42 with musical host The Weeknd.
Of course there’s no such thing, but that doesn’t stop the Australian actress and McKinnon from getting down — complete with EDM backup — and having a little wine in one of several silly promos for the season premiere.
SNL enters its new season without three cast members: veterans Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah and featured player Jon Rudnitsky. EP Lorne Michaels has added a trio of newbies to the Not Ready for Primetime Players: improv performer Alex Moffat, SNL writer Mikey Day and Latina impressionist/actor Melissa Villaseñor.
