Jake Gyllenhaal Closes Out Season 49 of ‘SNL’ With a Song

During the monologue for Saturday Night Live, Jake Gyllenhaal seemed to be trying to convince himself that he was OK with hosting the season 49 finale and not the season 50 premiere.

“When you think of historic television seasons, the first number that pops into your head is 49,” Gyllenhaal said. “I mean, sure, you know, one more episode and I would have been hosting the premiere of the 50th season, but who cares?”

The Road House actor later broke out in song to the tune of Boyz II Men’s “End Of The Road,” listing off all the people the sketch comedy series asked to host before asking Gyllenhaal.

“You know, I was actually SNL‘s first choice to host the finale after a lot of people said no,” he joked. “I guess they’re all holding out for the 50th but not me.”

“I’m the one who said, yeah,” he continued to sing. “They asked Pedro Pascal but he wasn’t around. Zendaya said no ’cause she’d be out of town. Even asked [Ryan] Gosling to come back again, just hosted three shows ago.”
