Jonah Hill returns to 'Saturday Night Live' as host - How did he do?

03/11/2012 by Kristina Lopez

Jonah Hill marked his second time as host of "Saturday Night Live" on March 10 and got a little help from a guest to kick off his opening monologue.

Hill spoofed the fact that he was a recent Oscar nominee and was shown in a clip speaking down to members of the cast. Tom Hanks, a two-time Academy Award-winner, popped up on stage and teased Hill with his own Oscar.

During the show, Hill was front and center in many skits including one where he played a scientist who holds a press conference to announce that he taught an ape to talk. Unfortunately for the scientist, the ape reveals the two have had a sexual affair and gives embarrassing details.

In the "Digital Short" segment, Hill plays a volunteer on a spoof of "Science Finders'" who gets hit in the crotch repeatedly by tennis balls to measure his heart rate.

Hill also reprised his role as 6-year-old Adam Grossman, a character from the first time he hosted in 2008, who tries to hook his single dad up with young women.

The musical guest for the night were The Shins who played "Simple Song" and "It's Only Life."

Hill can be seen next in the film adaptation of "21 Jump Street," which stars Channing Tatum and Ice Cube and is set for release on March 16. Tatum hosted the February 4th episode of "Saturday Night Live" and might make an cameo on Saturday's episode.

Aside from "21 Jump Street," Hill will also appear opposite Ben Stiller in the comedy "Neighborhood Watch," which hits theaters in July.
