It was a pretty safe guess that there would be some Wolf of Wall Street reference during Jonah Hill's stint as SNL host, but his opening monologue turned out to be better than any sketch.
While posing as a big-headed, self-important version of himself -- the Oscar-nominated Actor! -- Hill was was called on it by Leonardo DiCaprio. But DiCaprio did more than show up. He was movie-star suave, and followed Hill right into a hilarious, absurdist ending.
Hill didn't have much impact on the rest of the show, until he appeared in a droll mock-trailer for a Her-inspired film called Me. It's what Her might have been if Spike Jonze had blown it. Hill does a killer Joaquin Phoenix, and even the high-waisted pants joke works.
