Tom Hanks hosted SNL from his home. “It’s good to be here, but it’s also weird to be here hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ from home. It is a strange time to try and be funny, but trying to be funny is ‘SNL’s’ whole thing, so what the heck let’s give it a shot,” Hanks said from what appeared to be his kitchen. The Forrest Gump star who was wearing a suit, added that this was the first time he’s worn anything other than sweatpants in a month. The show included sketches with Larry David playing Senator Bernie Sanders, Alec Baldwin appearing as President Trump and musical guest Chris Martin who sang a rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From The Storm,” all of them filmed in their homes.
John Krasinski and Red Sox legend David Ortiz surprised a group of health professionals in Boston. In the latest installment of his homemade news show, “Some Good News,” Krasinski showed appreciation for the members of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital’s COVID-19 unit. “I gotta tell you guys from the very bottom of my heart how much I love and respect you for what you guys are doing,” Ortiz told the group. He then informed them that the Red Sox organization was gifting the hospital staff tickets to their games for life. Krasinski had the group head outside to “the most sanitized duck boat in America,” which took them to Fenway Park where the group threw out the first ceremonial pitch of the 2020 season.
