Miles Teller unveils Peyton Manning impression, grilled exits

Miles Teller unveils Peyton Manning impression, grilled exits


What would ‘Saturday Night Live’ be without Kate McKinnon or Chris Reed? Peyton and Eli Manning weren’t quite sure.

In the season 48 opening sketch, the Manning Brothers (played by host Miles Teller and Andrew Desmocks) face the elephant in the room regarding the final exits of eight “SNL” regulars.

“There have been a lot of changes to the show which can be exciting,” Teller says in his hilarious impression of Peyton. “Let’s see what they spent the whole summer coming up with.”

The football duo do live analysis of the season premiere – a parody of ESPN2’s “Monday Night Football” “ManningCast” – and groan about projected graphics, slamming recurring jokes about former President Donald Trump (“way to mix it up,” Peyton joked) and Gen Z’s “desperate references.” “.

Unfortunately, the “stats” aren’t very promising: “14 joke attempts in this episode, 1 light chuckle and 3 chuckles.” But in an effort to revive the show’s allure, the brothers called in Jon Hamm (playing himself) to sway the progression. It grills not only the mediocre performance of the show, but also their choice in the host.

“Sometimes they need to bring in a real celebrity when the host isn’t famous,” says Hamm, next to a disgruntled teller. “I mean, when they couldn’t get the big summer movie star, or Tom Cruise or Jon Hamm, they had to get the co-star.”

The Saturday season premiere marks Teller’s first ride with a comedy show. Besides the “Top Gun” star, four new members also appeared on Studio 8H: Marcello Hernandez, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow and Devon Walker.

Before the end of May, Eddie Bryant, Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, and Kyle Mooney announced their departures — along with the involuntary exits of Aristotle Atari, Alex Moffat, and Melissa Villasinor. Recently, USA TODAY learned that Chris Reed will also be out after five seasons.
