Comedian Will Ferrell returned to his old stomping grounds this weekend at “Saturday Night Live” to host it for the fifth time, and plenty of celebrity friends showed up in cameos.
Ferrell and Reynolds will be co-starring in a re-imagining of “A Christmas Carol,” which is reportedly being acquired by Apple. The live action musical is based on the classic book by Charles Dickens.
Later after the monologue, Reynolds joined the “SNL” cast in a segment of “Weekend Update” as a brah.
Even though Ferrell has created many memorable “SNL” characters over the years, none were reprised for this episode.
But he was joined by many “SNL” alum including Tracy Morgan, Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen, and Rachel Dratch. Alec Baldwin, Woody Harrelson and Larry David also popped up in cameos.
