SNL: Basketball Scene

On Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer get lots of attention, but it's the same old, same old.

I really liked the basketball scene sketch, a filmed piece. Very funny.

A movie is being filmed. Behind the scene's stars, Pete Davidson and Kenan Thompson, Jimmy Fallon and Mikey Day play basketball in the background. The director, Alex Moffat, is very patient with the background players.

ALEX MOFFAT: And cut! Hey, uh, basketball dudes? Looking just a little bit sloppy right now. We asked about basketball experience.

MIKEY DAY: Oh, yeah. I took a sports movement class at Juilliard.

MOFFAT: Uh-huh.

JIMMY FALLON: I was in a stage production of Basketball Diaries.

MOFFAT: Eh, forget it. Never mind. It's all good.

FALLON: Thank you, sir.

DAY: Thank you.

MOFFAT: And we're rolling, and action!
