‘SNL’: Chris Pine Clears Up Chris Confusion, Visits ‘Star Trek’ and Lip Syncs for His Life

First-time host Chris Pine presided over Saturday Night Live‘s second-ever fully live episode.

In one of the best sketches of the night, Pine along with Kenan Thompson, Beck Bennett, Alex Moffat and Bobby Moynihan are auto-body shop workers that casually mention RuPaul’s Drag Race at work.

Then it slowly starts to come out that they all know EVERYTHING about it. And then they lip sync, “FOR! THEIR! LIVES!”

In the opening monologue, Pine tries to clarify which of the “Chris” actors he is. “You know I have a movie coming out this weekend, it’s called Guardians of the Galaxy,” he said, to audience applause. “See? See? I knew that was going to happen. I am not in Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s Chris Pratt.”

When SNL‘s Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson arrives to clear things up, they only make matters worse, confusing their host with Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans.

The visual aids – posters of the various Chrises – are a nice touch.

Another top moment of the night was when Pine parodied Star Trek and played William Shatner in a sketch that was a supposedly lost episode of the original Star Trek series. Trek had brought on a new comic character, Spocko, in a failed attempt to boost ratings. Bobby Moynihan plays the third-rate comic playing Spocko.
