The '30 Rock' star tries to tell 'Saturday Night Live' cast member Bill Hader about the News Corp. phone hacking joke that did not make it for last Sunday's Emmys, but it is all censored.
"Saturday Night Live" will kick off its 37th season with Alec Baldwin as a host and he is featured in a promo for the show with regular cast member Bill Hader. Looking excited about the new season premiere which they associate with the first day back at school, the 53-year-old actor shows off his new trapper keeper despite claiming that they are adults.
Baldwin's cut joke about the News Corp. phone hacking scandal from 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards is referred in the video when Hader asks the Jack Donaghy of "30 Rock" to reenact it. When he is detailing the joke, it is bleeped out, leaving people to guess what he is actually saying based on Hader's uncomfortable expression.
When Hader mentions that it will be the 16th time Baldwin hosts "SNL", the Academy Award nominee humbly says, "It's about comedy." After a brief explanation, however, he admits it's all about him and pushes Hader aside to claim the whole frame of the camera.
The new season premiere of "SNL" will air September 24 at 11:30 P.M. ET on NBC with Radiohead as a musical guest.
