Will Forte stands at a height of 1.75m. Will forte was one of the SNL cast however he went of the show for sometime but got his first opportunity to host this year.
The SNL host who was very happy to be back on the show said in his opening monologue;
“I was in the cast 12 years ago with Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen, so it was really fun to see Kristen host, then Bill, then Andy, then Fred, then Kristen again, then Bill again, then Jason.”
Forte continued by getting irritated at being passed over. Here is what irritating Will said; “Seth Meyers, I mean he’s one of my best buds, but come on. He wasn’t really a sketch guy…But he hosted, right?”
He also talked about John Mulaney who was back then a writer for SNL but is currently hosting.
. “But hey, that’s okay! You know, I’m not bitter about it. I’m not,” Forte deadpanned. “Saved the best for last right? Saved the best for way last.”
Wiig appeared on stage, when Forte was relishing how he got on the show then the pair’s interaction quickly went bitter.
“Hi Will, I am so excited you’re hosting,” said the SNL alum, to which Forte responded, “Not a good time,” encouraging her to leave.
“Okay, well back to North Korea,” Wiig joked. “It was really hard to get out.”
After bemoaning the fact that Wiig got more applause when she came out than he did, Forte picked up where he’d left off.
“If I could just take a serious moment,” he said, “I’d like to say how much this show has meant to me. I started my career here and they’ve always supported me.”
As he spoke, the SNL band began to play, cutting him off.
“I waited 12 freaking years for this. I mean, have you seen some of the idiots they’ve had host the show since then?” Forte complained. “Kristen, Bill, Andy, Fred.”
“I’m so sorry, Will,” said Michaels. “There’s been a mistake.”
“Willem Dafoe?” said Forte. “You’re hosting next week!”
“I’m pretty sure it’s this week,” Dafoe replied.
“Oh my God, this is not happening,” said Forte. “Wait, you texted me to come host, Lorne.”
“I texted Willem,” said Michaels, “and you know, autocorrect.”
Forte then decided to have the audience decide who they’d prefer as host, with Forte polling at just 5%, as Wiig and Dafoe tied at 40 apiece.
