Its a longstanding Saturday Night Live tradition for celeb guests to appear along with the cast member that impersonates them on the program. Previous pairings have consisted of Mick Jagger and Jimmy Fallon, Hillary Clinton and both Amy Poehler and Kate McKinnon, Sarah Palin and Tina Fey as well as Donald Trump and Darrell Hammond. Rami Malek and Pete Davidson, who has actually represented him on the NBC program, took that an action even more by swapping personalities throughout Maleks SNL hosting stint.
See above the sketch, which also consists of a spot-on Melissa Villaseñor impersonation of Kristen Wiig, Chloe Fineman as Jennifer Coolidge, Mikey Day as John Oliver, Bowen Yang as George Takei (referencing Takeis newest verbal squabble with William Shatner), Chris Redd as Lil Wayne and James Austin Johnson as Adam Driver.
In a spoof titled Celeb School Game Show, Malek plays Davidson and Davidson handles Malek.
“Its like the soul of a Victorian kid is trapped in his eyes,” Maleks Davidson states about Davidsons Malek at one point.
