Jim Carrey takes on 'Black Swan' during 'Saturday Night Live'

01/08/2011 by Kristina Lopez

On Saturday, Jim Carey returned to the Saturday Night Live stage for the first time in fifteen years. Carrey showed that he was still a professional at performing skits since his days as a cast member on "In Living Color" with Keenen and Damon Wayans.

So the "Saturday Night Live" writers made good use of Carrey's knack for physical comedy by using him in a parody of "Black Swan." In the film, Natalie Portman's Nina character is picked to play the lead in "Swan Lake" and deals with a manipulative dance master as well as a rival ballerina Lily, portrayed by Mila Kunis. In the skit, Carrey took on Lily and tried to show Nina, played by "Saturday Night Live" cast memeber Nasom Pedrad, how to master the seductive black swan role.

Up next for the "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig will be Gwyneth Paltow on January 15 with musical guest Cee Lo Green. It is rumored the two will perform a duet of Green's hit song "Forget you," which Paltrow performed on "Glee."
