Kerry Washington Excited to Host ‘SNL,’ Eminem Isn’t in Funny Promo


Kerry Washington is enthusiastic about hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, and in a new promo, she teams up with a not-so-excited Eminem, who will be serving as the musical guest.

In the hilarious teaser, the Scandal actress is all smiles while she gushes about her hosting gig, and with the help of SNL cast member Nasim Pedrad, the two attempt to spark some excitement in the straight-faced “Berzerk” rapper, who is staring blankly into the camera.

In another take with just Eminem and Kerry, the 36-year-old actress says they will go out for some cupcakes after the show, which she reveals was the “Rap God” crooner’s idea, and finally, Eminem breaks his silence — and macho facade — and just says, “I love cupcakes.”

The episode is scheduled to air tomorrow night on NBC at 11:30/10:30c.

On a scale from Kerry to Eminem, how excited are you?
