Meet Spocko, a 'Vulcan From Queens' in SNL's Lost Star Trek Episode

Not only did Chris Pine (my favorite actor) host but I got to be live in studio when it happened! Therefore, it seems appropriate that Pine did this sketch with Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett after the faux reality show premise was used in a sketch when Chris Hemsworth hosted SNL back in March of 2015.

That's why Pine, during his monologue, made a decision to explain exactly who he was. To be fair, the confusion is now even worse because we have all of the Chris actors starring in films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor, and Captain America. He poked fun at his "Star Trek" role, clarified exactly which Chris he is and did a lot of musical numbers on the NBC show. Or is it Chris Pratt? And our lovely host (Chris Pine) is in the upcoming "Wonder Woman".

An "SNL" look into the break room of the fictional Jackson Auto Car Service Center exposed the shop's mechanics for who they really are: BIG "RuPaul's" fans. Driving the point home was this Star Trek parody that featured Chris Pine as William Shatner's Kirk and Akria "Leo" Yoshimura as Sulu.

Have a look at the SNL clip to test your knowledge of Hollywood's superheroes named Chris. Watch Pine's hilarious "SNL" monologue above. So, Pine chose to clear up the confusion with a big poster of all of their faces and a song, set to the tune of Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl". If you listen closely, you can hear me yelling "WOOHOO" when the Starship Enterprise is flying. Why?

Some parishes are trying to deliver care to this population on their own, but they simply can not meet the need. Many millions have been forced to give up their plans and doctors.


"Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior".

"I'm Chris Pine", Pine corrected.

Who can't appreciate a slew of "scruffy and squinty and jacked, but in a sweet way" guys named Chris who play superheroes we cannot differentiate?

Leslie Jones knows how to work her angles.
