Steven Spielberg played himself in an SNL Digital Short last night, as the ostensible director of the latest installment of Laser Cats  -- the low-tech, sci-fi series with Andy Samberg and Bill Hader, a perfect franchise for a guy obsessed with space aliens. Although the Spielberg alter ego called attention to what he crowingly called his “Hitchcockian cameo” in the film, the real homages were to E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Jurassic Park.
