Colin Jost has moved on from Seth Meyers as host of NBC’s Saturday Night Live , but that doesn’t mean he’s afraid to poke fun at himself. This week, Jost offered a comedic hint at his upcoming nuptials to actress Scarlett Johansson.
The SNL cast member revealed on the show that he had yet to invite the best man to attend his upcoming nuptials to Johansson. His choice for best man? None other than popular comedian Jason Sudeikis .
Evan Agostini/Invision/AP Colin Jost and Jason Sudeikis perform on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” in Manhattan, New York, U.S., December 1, 2017.
The joke turned especially mean-spirited when he introduced Sudeikis to his soon-to-be newlywed. Upon hearing Jost introduce his best man, Sudeikis had some questionable choice words for his former roommate: “Good luck! If they’re good, I will make you very, very happy!”
After Jost awkwardly asks about the wedding guest he’s yet to call, Johansson appears at his side and says, “I’m sitting next to Jason’s best man.”
“You talkin’ to me?” Jost asks. “Oh yeah, I’ll come up there and do the pouring,” his best man interjects.
The hot-button issue
Johansson and Jost revealed their engagement in September. They have a 3-year-old daughter together, Rose Dorothy.
The couple have been friends for nearly 20 years and in 2010 married their longtime partner in a small ceremony in Jost’s home state of Vermont.
Johansson previously said the couple both consider Jost’s father to be their best man.
“For us,” Johansson said. “We’re creating this dream we were never able to create before. So, our family is already filled with the greatest of your best friends and our dad is there because we need that support.”
