SNL host Oscar Isaac began his monologue with a self-deprecating aside: “They actually wanted me to host back in 2015 but I replied, ‘Nah, I’m not ready.'” Isaac joked. Waiting till the pandemic is through would be ideal.’ So, “What pandemic?” they inquired.
A new Disney+ series called Moon Knight will star the Star Wars and Dune actor, who has expressed his excitement about entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As Isaac put it, “This is a sort of a full-circle moment” given his first film was The Avenger.
In contrast to The Avengers, which was a big hit. That is not the case. When I was ten, I wrote, directed, and starred in my first film, The Avenger. On-site in Miami, Florida, I shot it with my friend Bruce Ferguson in his backyard, where we grew up. We have a clip in which I portray a ninja assassin in training to face his arch-nemesis.
It’s Isaac’s turn to switch to the blurry footage from his own home. For a mere $110 million, I was able to make a picture that is arguably better than the actual Avengers. I, on the other hand, took it very seriously—perhaps too seriously. As this scene illustrates.”
During the following video, you can clearly see Isaac’s friend’s father cleaning the pool in the background as he “acts his heart out.” NBCUniversal demanded Isaac sign a licensing deal in order to display the home videos (“The Avenger, coming this autumn to Peacock!”) Isaac gave a shoutout to the dad, Bruce.
To close out his presentation, Isaac played one final clip from his boyhood collection.
Then why are you using your monologue to show us old family videos? “It’s vital to encourage youngsters to be weirdos because of this,” Isaac explains. As a result of the fact that a “weirdo” will occasionally become the host of SNL.
