'SNL' Presents Ed Helms, Chris Colfer, Steve Carell and More

Helms' turn as the show's host was made merry with unannounced guests in two skits including live-action version of the Ambiguously Gay Duo.

AceShowbiz - %cEd Helms%' shift to host "Saturday Night Live" received plenty of helps from fellow TV stars. One skit features not only the musical guest %cPaul Simon% but also %cChris Colfer% of "Glee", %cKenan Thompson% and %cBill Hader% in his Lindsey Buckingham character. Another boasts %cJon Hamm%, %cJimmy Fallon%, %cFred Armisen%, %cStephen Colbert%, and %cSteve Carrell%.

Colfer appears in Thompson's regular "What's Up With That?" segment. However, he hardly had speaking role, so did Helms who portrays "Sexy Banjo Man". Simon got the privilege of leading the skit with Thompson and Hader.

The biggest laughter of all came from the return of the Ambiguously Gay Duo, a cartoon created by Robert Smigel and J. J. Sedelmaier about two superheroes whose orientation are questionable. The sketch started as an animation but soon turned to live-action, thanks to Helms' two-faced character's cheap gun. Hamm takes the role of Ace while Fallon is Gary. Carell and Colbert who voice the villains in the cartoon version bring out to life, Big Head and Brain-io respectively.

Meanwhile, the "Weekend Update" features %cBobby Moynihan%'s Anthony Crispino as well as %cKristen Wiig% and Armisen as musical duo Garth and Kat.
