Rachel Bloom's SNL audition tape featured a "Space Jam" bit, and yes, you can watch it!
But did you know that this talented actress auditioned for Saturday Night Live in 2012?
No? Well, she did — and her audition was pretty special, because she impersonated Katharine Hepburn auditioning for Bugs Bunny in Space Jam. OH YES SHE DID.
Here’s how this all came to light. Following SNL’s Twitter call for fans to say who they want to be host on the upcoming 42nd season, Bloom’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-star Donna Lynne Champlin nominated Bloom (which is a great idea btw).
And that prompted this tweet:
Thankfully, the video was released on Thursday, and, as you saw, it was smart, weird, zany, and incredible — just like Bloom herself.
Ummmmmmm okay, it’s official: Rachel Bloom NEEDS to host SNL. And the internet agrees!
Dear Lorne Michaels: PRETTY PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN ASAP. THANKS.
