Saturday Night Live: Ryan Gosling Goes Full Beavis for Beavis and Butt-Head Sketch

SNL host Ryan Gosling dressed as Beavis for a wild new sketch!

Saturday Night Live saw Ryan Gosling fully dress as Beavis for a fun new take on Beavis and Butt-Head! Saturday Night Live featured Ryan Gosling on his third stint as guest host, and it kicked off with a bang. Not only has Gosling brought back some of the big sketches he was a part of in the past (with special guests along for the ride), but he also had a fiery monologue that helped say goodbye to his time as Ken from Barbie. But even with all of this, his wildest look of the episode was of the famous Mike Judge animated character, Beavis. 

Saturday Night Live kicked off what seemed to be a sketch focusing on the debate around artificial intelligence, only to reveal Gosling dressed as Beavis in the crowd. Deemed to be too distracting, Gosling's Beavis was asked to move only to be replaced by Mikey Day dressed as Butt-Head. This was such a moment that even mainstay Heidi Gardner completely broke when seeing the two of them in their ridiculous outfits for the first time, and led to a sketch where no one could stop laughing.

Who is in the Saturday Night Live cast?

Cast members for Saturday Night Live season 49 include almost the entire cast from season 48 of SNL. Returning stars include Michael Che, Mikey Day, Andrew Dismukes, Chloe Fineman, Heidi Gardner, James Austin Johnson, Punkie Johnson, Colin Jost, Ego Nwodim, Sarah Sherman, Kenan Thompson, and Bowen Yang. Featured players that are part of the cast include returning stars Marcello Hernandez, Molly Kearney, Michael Longfellow, and Devon Walker, plus the show's only fully new cast member for the year, newcomer Chloe Troast. The comedy troupe Please Don't Destroy, made up of Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy, are also a recurring part of the series. 

New Saturday Night Live Hosts

With the SAG-AFTRA Strike still without a resolution, Saturday Night Live is unable to tap actors to host new episodes since previously they would only appear on the series to promote some new work (prohibited by the rules of the SAG-AFTRA strike). As a result comedians and musicians have been the only hosts confirmed for Saturday Night Live season 49 with Pete Davidson, Bad Bunny, and Nate Bargatze taking the spotlight for the first three episodes.

Saturday Night Live Season 49 is ongoing now with new episodes airing on both NBC and Peacock, starting Saturdays at 11:30 PM ET. All 48  seasons of Saturday Night Live are also now streaming on Peacock
