The actor will host Saturday Night Live this weekend with musical guest Lil Baby
Michael B. Jordan can’t keep his hands to himself. In the latest promo clip ahead of her hosting gig this week Saturday Night Livethe actor leaves newcomer Michael Longfellow with a broken nose from two big punches to the face.
Taking the stage where he will make his hosting debut, Jordan had his back turned when Longfellow caught him off guard – then his fist caught the comedian off guard in return. Two times.
“I’m so sorry, it’s muscle memory,” the actor said, referencing his training as Adonis Creed in the Creed film franchise. The third part, Creed III, hits theaters March 3 for his directorial debut. Reeling from the blows, Longfellow asks, “Even the second one?”
Thankfully, no blood was spilled, but as Longfellow points out, “I was hired for my looks, not my talent.” The sentiment becomes common ground for the couple, who agree to keep HR updated on their little incident on set.
“Don’t ever embarrass me like that again,” Jordan said to his fist.
The actor is a SNL beginner, but his musical guest counterpart has already taken the stage. Lil Baby first appeared on the show as a special guest during DJ Khaled’s performance in an episode hosted by Paul Rudd in 2019. This time around, he’ll have the stage all to himself. The Atlanta rapper will likely perform songs from his album It is only mewhich includes the singles “Heyy”, “In a Minute” and “California Breeze”.
