Jamie Foxx Takes On Tyler Perry on SNL

Jamie Foxx took over as the guest host of Saturday Night Live and apparently he brought along Tyler Perry, Madea, and Alex Cross for the ride.

SNL took a break for three weeks, but did their best to return back to the air with a strong show with big name celebs.

While most guest hosts seem intimidated by the responsibility of hosting the late night comedy sketch show, Jamie’s comedy background definitely came in handy.

The “Django Unchained” actor’s presence commanded attention the entire night as he took on several funny sketches – rather than the one or two small parts that most of the SNL hosts settle with.

Perhaps the most memorable sketch of the night was when the comedian turned actor played Tyler Perry in the movie trailer for one of Perry’s “upcoming films.”

Fan’s weren’t used to seeing Perry take on a serious action character without his Madea wig on, and it seems like the 44-year-old actor figured out the perfect solution – Tyler Perry Presents: Alex Cross 2 : Madea Special Ops.

The hilarious phony movie trailer features Jamie as Tyler as Alex Cross as Madea. That’s right all three in one sketch – talk about talent.

One side of Foxx is fully made up as Tyler Perry’s action character Alex Cross, while the other side of the gun slinging grandma that everyone loves. Even Cross’s mustache stops in the middle of his lip and continues on as a line of bright red lipstick instead. As for Madea’s large rim glasses? Even those simply stop at the bridge of Jamie’s nose leaving us all wondering how they even stayed in place the entire time.

The trailer starts by only showing one side of Jamie’s face as he sits up answering a call as Alex Cross, before the scene cuts to show Madea on the phone responding to the same call.

As confusing as it may seem at first, all questions are answered when the “Ray” actor confidently marches unto the crime scene as half Madea, half Alex Cross.

    Thanks for posting that clip. I missed the show last night because I got stuck working late in my office at DISH. Thankfully, DISHOnline.com posts the show the day after it airs, so I can get caught up whenever I have the time. I just watched the episode, and I was disappointed by this sketch. If anyone deserves to feel the pain of parody, it is Tyler Perry, but Jamie Foxx and the writers of this sketch just couldn’t find the joke.
