The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan played up her authentic fifties retro vibe in a film noir-style promo Wednesday for her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
In the minute-long b&w teaser, the 28-year-old Emmy winner dons a detective’s khaki trench coat and wanders around the 30 Rock set of the NBC sketch show.
‘I had seen it many times before, but here I was at SNL where it all went down,’ the Wisconsin-born stunner said in
‘Something was different. Where was the cast? It all felt a little too dead.’
SNL castmember Kenan Thompson then popped in to ask why Rachel was there ‘on a Sunday’ and then cryptically mentioned a mythical day of the week called ‘Fruesday.’
On Tuesday, Brosnahan said her episode was ‘going to be great’ and excitedly shared a snap of the stage, which was her ‘home through Saturday night!’
The NYU Tisch grad will be joined by musical guest Greta Van Fleet this Saturday when the 44th season resumes following the holiday break.
Fans can likely expect Alec Baldwin to return as President Donald Trump and perhaps SNL castmember Beck Bennett will get shirtless, yet again, as Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Broadway thespian knows a thing or two about period pieces having rocketed to A-list status for her role as fifties stand-up comedian Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel in the Amazon Video hit.
