Last night on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, actor Chris Hemsworth was the host of the episode, and we all knew at some point SNL would spoof the mega-hot soap opera Empire, and last night they did!
In a satirical send-up promo, Keenan Thompson took on the role of Terrence Howard’s Lucious Lyon, while Sasheer Zamata took on Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji B. Henson. Other Empire notables spoofed included: Jamal (Jay Pharoah), Hakeem (Michael Che), and Porsha (Leslie Jones).
However in this promo, Fox’s Empire decides to even broaden their “appeal” by adding a white male character named Chip played by Hemsworth, and plunking him right into the mix with the over-the-top gang from the hip-hop-world. Chip soon learns it’s not easy working alongside this group!
