This weekend, Paul Rudd will return to Saturday Night Live to host for the third time. The funny actor was joined by the show’s cast member Vanessa Bayer in a series of promos for his upcoming appearance.
The Anchorman star will be joined by musical guest One Direction for the live show, a fact that he couldn’t help but freak out about just a little during the promotion.
“I just love the band One Direction!” Vanessa gushed, to which Paul responded, “The band?! The band with the hot British guys Niall, Harry, Louis, Zayn and Liam?!” After putting two and two together, he went on a major fangirl spree, screaming into a pillow and jumping up and down.
Paul also jokes about how he prepared for his Anchorman 2 role, and has trouble remembering Vanessa’s name. Check it out:
Check out Saturday Night Live to see what Paul and 1D have in store on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 11:30 on NBC.
