Dwayne Johnson

Last night, action superstar Dwayne Johnson returned to "Saturday Night Live" as host of the staple late night sketch series. Every time the wrestler turned actor comes back to Studio 8H, the episode is that much better. Johnson just throws himself into every sketch, has surprisingly great comedic timing, and just has a bunch of fun. Over the past few years, Johnson has become known for reinvigorating franchises, and last night "SNL" felt that thunder with one of the best episodes of the season so far. Coincidentally enough, in that episode, he also had an opening monologue about how he's "franchise viagra" and tossed out some ideas for how he can join other film series'. Oh, and he was also a badass Bambi out for revenge. Watch!

Here's Dwayne Johnson's amusing opening monologue about his franchise potential (via NBC):

But the cream of the crop is this sketch for Disney's live-action reboot of Bambi (via Hulu):

Johnson looks so ridiculous with all that deer make-up on, not to mention the horrible taglines. And the sketch is made even better by Taran Killam as Vin Diesel as Thumper, Jay Pharoah as Tyrese Gibson as Flower and Cecily Strong as Michelle Rodriguez as Faline (the girl Bambi). This was probably the best way to promote Furious 7 coming to theaters next week .And if you're looking for some more movie-related fun, there was also a pseudo-spoof of Indiana Jones, but the butt of the joke isn't so much the adventure hero himself, but rather Johnson's butt itself. You'll see what I mean if you watch it right here. Funny?
