Jason Momoa Becomes NBC Page in 'Saturday Night Live' Promo
Before Jason Momoa takes on the role as host of this week's episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live, he first took on the job of a network page.
In a promo for his upcoming appearance, the Aquaman star walks by a frantic page. When the page asks Momoa to take over the phones, he says, "My pleasure." The actor then puts on a blazer to get into character before he begins to answer the calls.
"I don't not know that answer right now," Momoa says while on the phone. His voice deepens and he says, "But I will do everything in my power to get that information for you."
The actor then angrily makes his way down a hallway in search of the answer. When SNL castmember Beck Bennett tries to pitch him a sketch idea, he shouts that he doesn't have time before punching Bennett in the face.
Momoa makes his way to Lorne Michaels' office, but it is locked. He kicks the door in and eventually goes to the SNL stage, where he comically dodges the laser-light security alarm system.
The actor is later seen typing on a laptop. "Yes, yes!," he says as he takes off his jacket to continue typing. "Got it!"
When Momoa returns to the phone, he asks the caller if they are still on the line. "Yes, the show is live," he answers as he struggles to catch his breath. "You're welcome."
After Momoa hangs up the phone, he has a moment of realization "F—. The show's live?" he asks out loud.
Momoa will host the Dec. 8 episode of Saturday Night Live, while Mumford & Sons will serve as the musical guest. Watch the full promo, below.
