After winning a cool $9,200 on a scratch-off, it's DJ Tom's last shift working at Bongo's Clown Room. Time for greener pastures.

Kristen comes out at 3:47.

Not a lot of stripping going on, but I guess that's kind of the point.

Kristen Wiig's Paul info (Steven Spielberg offers cameo)

Greg Mottola, Simon Pegg, Kristen Wiig and Nick Frost (wearing a UT jersey) introduced their new film Paul from the Paramount Theatre stage Sunday night to a highly enthusiastic audience eager for some geek comedy. The film -- and the Q&A -- delivered on that.

An amusing ode to Comic Con nerds and sci-fi fans, the movie played very well, with audience members gasping at the appearance of certain actors (I won't ruin them) and laughing uproariously at the sci-fi cinema in-jokes. These included visual, musical or verbal references (or all three) to the first Star Wars trilogy, Aliens, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the Indiana Jones films, Cocoon, Back to the Future, Starman, Total Recall, E.T., Predator, The X-Files and more. There are also a few line recitations from previous films repurposed for Paul that floored people.

REVIEW: Read THR's Paul review

One of my favorite lines is Frost’s shocked resistance to Paul’s offer to implant his full extraterrestrial knowledge in Frost’s brain: “No spoilers!”

There’s also a kind of cameo from Steven Spielberg that, to the writer-stars’ astonishment, was an idea that came from the man behind Close Encounters and E.T. himself. Pegg stars in Spielberg’s forthcoming The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, and one day on set, Pegg said, he showed Spielberg a jokey picture he had taken of an alien bust next to Devil’s Tower. In talking about Paul, Spielberg then suggested that perhaps he was in contact with Paul during the alien’s many years of captivity at Area 51 and had picked his brain for ideas during his early sci-fi filmmaking. Pegg and Frost were gobsmacked by the offer.

One glaring omission, given the film’s set-up, was any humor derived from alien sex. Other than one quick flash to Paul humping something on a mountaintop during a mind-meld montage, Pegg and Frost declined to include any exploration of this in their script. During the Q&A they acknowledged that they did have one long monologue from Paul about how everyone on his planet is bisexual and Earth humans are way too uptight about it, but it got trimmed down to one line in the finished film. It seems to me that having a smoking, cursing, bawdy alien with the voice and attitude of Seth Rogen and not using it for anything but a single anal probe joke seems like a terrible missed opportunity.

Rogen was shot during rehearsals in motion capture gear to get his movements for the VFX crew and work through the script. On set during filming, co-star Joe Lo Truglio, who plays a law enforcement guy with deep geek cred, did Rogen’s lines with the other actors and improvised a lot. Rogen later re-recorded any lines that made it into the final cut.

Mottola, who directed the film, had his Adventureland play at SXSW in 2009. During the Q&A, Pegg said that he and Frost had first started kicking around the idea for Paul while they were making Shaun of the Dead in 2004. He then joked that they went to Mottola because, “We wanted to make Daytrippers—but with an alien instead of Liev Schreiber.”

Oddly, the film’s before-party at Shakespeare’s Pub on Sixth was sponsored by Maxim, though none of the girls on display had three breasts (a running joke from the film). The filmmakers, however, would be happy to provide a second Paul.

“If we do well [with Paul],” said Pegg, “maybe you’ll see Pauls.”

Kristen Wiig's Comedy Awards Acceptance Speech (video)

The Comedy Awards aired last Sunday, so Comedy Central put some videos up!

Here we see Andy Samberg, Joanna Newsom, Akiva, and Jorm laughing as Kristen talks into her award. Confused? You'll see what I mean. =^)

This is a big award. Kristen was going against all the comediennes on TV. And she was the funniest. Now if she can only win one of those Emmy nominations!

Any thoughts on Kristen Wiig's acceptance speech?

Hilarious, of course.

Kristen Wiig feels Helen Miren's magical bosom (SNL Digital Short)


Nasim Pedrad goes to a special place after Helen Mirren allows her to touch her breasts.

Film - SNL Digital Short: Helen Mirren's Magical Bosom

Bobby Moynihan ... dancing bee

Andy Samberg ... saint
Kristen Wiig

Wow. I think my favorite part of this was actually Bobby Moynihan who just brought the bee costume back! SNL did the bees their first season in 75, but it was John Belushi who really pushed and owned the bee movement.

Kristen comes in for a joke at the end.

Kristen Wiig in ESPN Classics (Tom Hanks, SNL)

From the Elton John episode this week (the only skit without Elton in it).

As usual, Kristen plays a different athlete in every "episode" of this skit.

This classic track and field event, featuring Carmela St. Knix, is sponsored by KY Jelly.

Show - KY Jelly Ladies Shot Put Championship 1985

Carmelo Anthony ... Carmela St. Knix
Tom Hanks ... Steve Stink
Will Forte ... Greg Stink
Steve Higgins ... announcer (voice)
Jason Sudeikis ... Pete Twinkle
Kristen Wiig ... Charlotte Ft. Worth

Will Forte comes back to SNL to continue this skit for the sixth time. Tom Hanks comes in as Will's brother.

The audience was so entertained by Tom Hanks and the skit that they were celebrating it a little early before the skit ended.

This is an unusual but funny series of skits. This episode definitely kept it fresh and funny.

Kristen Wiig in Knights of the Realm (SNL)

It seems as though Kristen's accent gets an unplanned laugh after the first line.

When a dragon attacks London, England's most recognizable knights devise a plan to stop it.

Sketch - Knights of the Realm

Elton John
Tom Hanks ... Michael Caine
Fred Armisen ... Ringo Starr
Paul Brittain ... Barnaby Xavier St. Hidgens III
Bill Hader ... Richard Branson
Taran Killam ... Ian McKellen
Seth Meyers ... announcer (voice)
Bobby Moynihan ... shopkeeper
Andy Samberg ... Bono
Kenan Thompson ... Sir Mix-A-Lot
Kristen Wiig ... Diedre


This is Tom Hanks' first attempt at Michael Caine. Caine has also had impressions done twice by Phil Hartman and once by Seth Meyers. Ringo Starr was also played by Jon Lovitz (3 times). Bill Hader is the only one on SNL who has played Richard Branson (3 times). Taran holds the first and only SNL impression of Ian McKellan. Kenan is the only SNLer to do Sir Mix-a-lot, and this is his second time (who can forget Sir Mix-a-lot's Photo Shop?).

This is Andy's first attempt at Bono. Bono has also been played by Alec Baldwin (once), Adam Sandler (twice), Chris Kattan (twice), and Colin Farrell (once).

Kristen Wiig can't get Elton John to notice her (Cowboy from the Future, SNL)

A cowboy from the future finds himself very out of place in an old west saloon.

Sketch Cowboy
Elton John ... Bruce
Bill Hader ... bartender
Taran Killam ... cowboy
Bobby Moynihan ... cowboy
Jason Sudeikis ... cowboy
Kristen Wiig ... Crystal

Hahahaha. I don't know what to say. It was interesting. I thought this was going to take a poke at Cowboys and Aliens, but I guess not.

Kristen Wiig is Dooneese on Lawrence Welk (Elton John, SNL)

The Finger Lake Sisters, with Dooneese, team up with Francis Lynn March is back to sing about their love for the spring season.

Cold Opening - The Lawrence Welk Show
Elton John ... Frances Lynn Mulge
Fred Armisen ... Lawrence Welk
Vanessa Bayer ... Toni
Abby Elliott ... Shirley
Nasim Pedrad ... Nancy
Kristen Wiig ... Dooneese

Kristen had talked to Jimmy about this character in her last interview with him. The forehead and hands weren't something they thought much about and the makeup crew ran with it.

Hilarious, as always. This is Kristen's fifth appearance as Dooneese. The sisters have NEVER been the exact same ones...
Anne Hathaway ... Janice
Amy Poehler ... Holly
Casey Wilson ... Nora
Will Ferrell ... Ted Netters
Abby Elliott ... sister
Michaela Watkins ... sister
Casey Wilson ... Nora
James Franco ... Rico Garlanda
Abby Elliott ... Shirley
Nasim Pedrad ... Nancy
Jenny Slate ... Rhonda
Betty White ... mother
Amy Poehler ... Janice
Ana Gasteyer ... Clara
Maya Rudolph ... Peggy
Molly Shannon ... Jugglette
Rachel Dratch ... Jugglette
Tina Fey ... Jugglette
Will Forte ... Gary Corndeensen
Elton John ... Frances Lynn Mulge
Vanessa Bayer ... Toni
Abby Elliott ... Shirley
Nasim Pedrad ... Nancy

This is Abby's third appearance as the sister Shirley, Nasim's second appearance as Nancy, and Vanessa's first appearance.

Interestingly, the first two appearances of the skit were after the monologue (Anne Hathaway & Will Ferrell episodes). That's where they put the #1 skits, so obviously the skits must have done well in read throughs and the dress rehearsal.

Then the last three appearances of the skit were cold openings (James Franco, Betty White, and Elton John episodes). So the skit is the only current, recurring skit on SNL that gets in the cold opening when it's on. This basically means it's the best recurring skit on SNL right now (combination of funniest and most popular).

Kristen Wiig SNL promo with Elton John!

Some good gags from Kristen.

Kristen Wiig on Jimmy Kimmel (video interview)

Part 1 of Jimmy's interview with Kristen Wiig.

Kristen reveals that the Target Lady is based off a woman who worked in the Burbank Target store. Kristen asked for directions and was surprised by her voice.

Aunt Linda was inspired by a woman on an airplane who was confused when watching a movie (and very vocal about her confusion).

Kristen also mentions that Aunt Linda and Target Lady were first performed at the Groundlings before she was on SNL. She performed Aunt Linda as watching The Matrix and being super confused by the movie. I can see how that would be funny (watching Kristen watch clips of The Matrix as Aunt Linda).

Lawrence Welks (with Doonese) was written by Kristen and a writer, Andrew. The big forehead and tiny hands were notes, but they didn't really think that the props and makeup crew would make it so obvious until the crew came to Kristen and started asking her what she wanted. So it kind of came about naturally.

Part 2 of Jimmy's interview with Kristen Wiig:

Kristen's mom didn't like Gilly.

Kristen isn't leaving SNL yet, and to address Jimmy, there's no way she can break some of these SNL player records. Fred, Kenan, Jason, Seth, Andy, and Bill have all been on longer than she has.

Kristen addresses her fake Twitter account and how weird that was to read things that made her look lame.
