Colin Jost wants a cinematic wedding.
On Thursday, the star of Global’s “Saturday Night Live” appears “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and reveals his peculiar plans for his upcoming wedding to Scarlett Johansson — and it involves his “Weekend Update” co-host Michael Che.
“What I really want for Che is, I want him to do an objection at the wedding,” Jost explained. “You know, a lot of people do speeches, but I think it would be nice in that moment, so few people utilize that moment to object.”
He added, “I think he could do a really great objection.”
Jost also addressed rumours, inspired by his recent book A Very Punchable Face: A Memoir, that he is planning to leave “SNL”.
“I don’t have a real timeline,” he clarified. “I just mean, like I started to potentially psychologically brace for the concept of leaving, which I hadn’t really done. Certainly quarantine makes you appreciate having any job.”
Finally, Jost joined Ellen for a game of “Weakest Link”, with the game show’s host Jane Lynch there to ask the questions.
