Edward Norton reminds me of k.d. lang

by Anonymousreply 410/26/2013

Norton is in Wes Anderson's new movie.

I'm actually surprised to see Norton hosting SNL. Just didn't seem like the kind of thing he'd ever be interested in doing.

R2: Kenan Thompson

This possum sketch is painful.

I heard Edward Norton, granted like most actors in Hollywood, was told he would never work.

That he wasn't good enough or unique enough or handsome enough.

There was one key person who refused to believe it.

Edward Norton.

Loved it when Krusty the Klown hosted Tuesday Night Live on The Simpsons.

He did a sketch called the big eared family; he takes out a GIANT Q-Tip and there's no laugh.

"Ug," Krusty says. "This goes on for another EIGHT minutes!"

So Janelle is just one more flop album away from taking her hair down and clothes off, right?

Baldwin is a star. Norton is an actor. Big difference.

Granted, I haven't watched much of SNL this season, so maybe I've missed his big moments, but so far of the new regulars, Beck Bennett never seems to get much to do and barely allowed to speak in any of the sketches in which he appears.

Maybe they just hired him for his hotness?

Monae totally copied James Brown's style and stage act.

Horrible singing.......... Ouch. My ears hurt.

Remember when performers sang live on SNL?

Good god, Norton has to be one of the unfunniest hosts since DeNiro. I'm embarrassed for him.

Brooks Wheelan showed a cute ass in that jumpsuit during the possum sketch.

I hate this damn Bobby Moynahan character who mishears news events. It's so incredibly one-note. It's like reading a fucking Amelia Bedelia book or something.

This is a terrific episode! Highly entertaining!

That one with the virgin waiters talking about sex actually made me laugh. At least it was sort of original and quirky.

Scooby Doo is related to someone in Hollywood, but I cannot remember who.

Norton wears a hairpiece. He's showing his age too.

by Anonymousreply 2810/27/2013

I recognize Janelle Monet now! She is the pretty girl from that Revlon commercial!

Some of Janelle's performance stances come across as vaguely lesbian, which is bizarre.

She is really pretty.

Not one word of those songs was sung live.

Oh gawd--is this the birth of a Monaebot?

Janelle is soulless. I didn't see one once of an actual human being in that chaotic black and white mashup.

Don't know why watching Ed Norton say he'd "suck anything you put in front of him," because that's how much he loves a Klondike, gave me kind of a chubby.

by Anonymousreply 3410/27/2013

Oh and Cyrus twerking as 19th century southern belle for 3 seconds had more presence than Janelle's entire two performances.

Janelle Monae was singing live. Some of you elderly assholes clearly don't know what you are talking about.

[quote]Never heard of Ms. Monae. Doubt I'll like her music.

Here's why people hate the elder gays of DL.

You admit you are so out of touch with modern music that you've never heard of Janelle Monae, and then you decide you won't like her music based on ... what? Her skin color?

You suck, old man.

by Anonymousreply 4110/27/2013

Well, I never heard of Janelle Monae before either and I loved her.

Great song. Great dance moves.

Definitely had a lesbian look going on.

The opening skit with Kathleen Sebelius explaining the Obamacare website was great.

Three Facebook likes!

Got a big chuckle when she offered 1000 free hours of AOL (!!) but then warned not to use it while on the Obamacare website or it would cause an actual fire.

Also loved when the screen froze as she was telling us . . . . . . . . . "or you will die."

by Anonymousreply 4310/27/2013

I would explore Edward's anus for several hours

by Anonymousreply 4410/27/2013

R34, I agree about getting a chubby. I like to think it is because it was the only part of Norton's entire performance that was real.

by Anonymousreply 4510/27/2013

Oh r46, I agree r41 is annoying, but OMG yoyr response was waaay too intense for a quiet Sunday morning. Relax and have a bagel.

by Anonymousreply 4710/27/2013

To get the convo started in another direction, Edward does have a bad hairpiece. You would think with all his millions he could spring for a top line wig. Is it just me or is he starting to look like a grandma/pa? He's getting very jowly. Not aging well at all. He was so hot in American History X and Pride and Glory (where he also wore a hairpiece, but at least it was applied by a professional and looked good) I think he did SNL cuz he can't get a job. Hear his contracts state he has to have creative control during production. His shrilly prima donna ways have come back to bite him in the ass. Anyone out there work with him on a set who can confirm or deny this?

by Anonymousreply 4810/27/2013

I have tried to warm up to Kate McKinnon, but she is too strident.

I came here to post that Ed Norton looked like kd lang in the monologue, and I see that R4 felt the same. Uncanny resemblance, really. He was not a very good host.

by Anonymousreply 4910/27/2013

Janelle's been hanging with Prince & Erykah Badu. She been performing & recording with them. Her Black & White themes she wears is in honor of her parents. They were maids & she was a maid before her music career. The black & white is in honor of the uniform color'& where she came from.

by Anonymousreply 5010/27/2013

I like it

by Anonymousreply 5110/27/2013

Janelle is one of the few original artists coming out of this age of ex-Disney stars and boy bands.

by Anonymousreply 5210/27/2013

I was hoping to see McKinnon as Chancellor Merkel. Maybe next week.

Who keeps trying to make Monae happen?

by Anonymousreply 5510/27/2013

It's funny, I don't remember ever reading speculation about Norton's sexuality on DL, but he really does have a touch of gayvoice/gay mannerisms. Maybe it's just that he's not hot enough anymore, or doesn't have a big enough career anymore, for people on here to care about whether he's gay or not? I remember definitely being attracted to him when he was first prominent in the '90s, but he does nothing for me now.

by Anonymousreply 5610/27/2013

I always thought he looked like a grown up version of that kid who starred in The Sixth Sense.

by Anonymousreply 5710/27/2013

He plays gay even when it's not indicated, like the Halloween candy man. Weird.

by Anonymousreply 5810/27/2013

[quote]In my post I said I did not know who this person was. Her musical set had not come on yet.

And yet you said you didn't think you'd like her music... based on what?

Are you one of those retards who say things like "oh, I like all kinds of music"?

by Anonymousreply 5910/27/2013

R41? Leave age out of it. R2's taste has nothing to do with age. Probably more a lack of interest.

I'm an elder gay but I am 47 and I love Janelle Monae. No need to be rude about a person's age.

by Anonymousreply 6010/27/2013

R60, it's hilarious when you elder gays whine about being called old, when this place is filled with racism and sexism.

Jan Monae has no stage presence. She's like a soulless robot. She always poses with her mouth open.

by Anonymousreply 6210/27/2013

When he did the opening he looked skinnier than Miley, and that possum sketch with the sleeveless shirt, all I could think of was it wouldn't kill you to lift some weights. I liked the Halloween sketch. He plays gay very well.

by Anonymousreply 6310/27/2013

I'm gonna do whatever it takes to GET THAT CANDY!

by Anonymousreply 6410/27/2013

I enjoyed Janelle Monae but also thought she was just doing a Gwen Stefani impersonation.

Norton doesn't really come off as gay to me but he does have an effete, Vincent Price type quality that could read gay.

I had high hopes for the "Wes Anderson Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders" sketch but it didn't quite deliver. The concept was there but the execution was lacking.

by Anonymousreply 6510/28/2013

Based on the statistic that i need to mute 90% of the acts SNL books.

This just might be the only gay site on the internet, that has never heard of Janelle Monae. Are you all shut ins, sexless, or both?

Saturday's show was awful.

I miss Bill Heder's Vincent Price Hallowe'en Party.

by Anonymousreply 7010/28/2013

I haven't watched SNL, but I actually thought the show was ok. The audio seemed a little to polished for Janelle to be singing live, but she was good.

Is it me, or does Kate McKinnon use the same voice for nearly all her impersonations?
