On December 3, actor Emma Stone inched closer to the “Five-Timers Club” with her third hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.
As it is the holiday season and gifts are on the mind, Stone joined regular cast members Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant in singing “The Christmas Candle.” A parody of the gift you can re-gift and give again, Stone showed off her singing skills.
Stone made her Broadway debut replacing Michelle Williams as Sally Bowles in Roundabout Theatre Company’s most recent revival of Cabaret. She and actor Ryan Gosling, who previously starred together in Crazy Stupid Love, appear in the much-anticipated and critically-acclaimed feature film La La Land, which has its wide release in theatres December 16.
The movie musical, written and directed by Damian Chazelle, tells the story of a jazz pianist who falls for an aspiring actor in L.A. With music by Justin Hurwitz and lyrics by Broadway’s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the film has already won top prizes at the Venice Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, and was named the best film of 2016 by the New York Film Critics Circle. Pasek and Paul’s Dear Evan Hansen opens on Broadway December 4 at the Music Box Theatre.
