Ryan Gosling couldn't keep a straight face on 'Saturday Night Live'

Jay Z and Ryan Gosling will host

Another Close Encounter - When this sketch first started, I was certain that this wouldn't live up to the original close encounter sketch that Kate McKinnon's unfortunate character first appeared in. SNL fans who loved the Trump sketches past year will continue to be very pleased with the bit, while Trump fans will not.

"I mean, I haven't felt this excited since I saved jazz", Gosling said upon his entrance. Nice work if you can get it! After you've had it both ways, where else is there to go? Baldwin's Trump is largely the same, although he seems to be going deeper in the facial contortions department.

La La Land fans were in for a *major* treat last night! At least Mike Huckabee can't tweet that SNL was being sexist to his daughter. Or, you know, watch "SNL" again when it repeats at 11:30 p.m.

Alec Baldwin wasn't the only one reprising a role during the episode.

That's the question heading into Saturday's Season 43 premiere of the long-running sketch series, which just weeks ago won nine Emmy Awards, including one for outstanding variety sketch series.

New York Jets vs Jacksonville Jaguars
What it means for the Jaguars: Jacksonville has been a pleasant surprise in 2017, and a win Sunday would put the team at 3-1. The Jaguars were out of sync all game, and even the apparent strengths of the team were non-existent on Sunday.

In the film, Gosling was seen as a musician with eyes on bringing jazz back to prominence.

In the sketch, Baldwin's Trump was unclear that Puerto Rico was an American territory, hung up on the mayor of San Juan, put Sessions playfully on his lap and admitted he liked football. Probably unleashing Che entirely is the best chance Weekend Update has of regaining relevancy. McKinnon's character, however, had quite a different experience. "It was like 9 billion. nearly as many notes as there are in jazz", Gosling said.

The sketch began innocently enough, with Gosling and Cecily Strong's characters describing their pleasant, mind-bending experience being abducted by "glowing beings made of handsome light" and seeing their entire lives flash before their eyes. Or at least they were visible. Would I recognize him if he had been?

The eagerly anticipated return of Saturday Night Live will introduce three new cast members, Chris Redd, Luke Null and Heidi Gardener.
