Ryan Gosling Rehearse To Meet ‘Mr Stapleton’ As SNL’s Host In The Promo Video.

EntertainmentRyan Gosling Rehearse To Meet 'Mr Stapleton' As SNL's Host In The Promo Video.

Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt reignited the Barbenheimer battle during Gosling’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue with an epic rendition of Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well,” complete with real-life Barbies and dancing Oppenheimers.

Gosling kicked off his third “SNL” monologue with a callback to Ken, the role that nabbed him an Academy Award nomination and wild live performance at the Oscar ceremony. In a startling reveal, Gosling said he wasn’t going to make any jokes about Ken because they had to sever their relationship. “It’s not funny,” said Gosling. “Ken and I, we had to break up. We went too deep. And it’s over.”

However, the actor revealed he wasn’t fully done processing the loss and that, “letting go feels like a breakup, and for processing a breakup, there’s really only one thing that can help: the music of the great Taylor Swift.” Cue the piano, shades and a new take on the Swift classic “All Too Well,” which is featured prominently in Gosling’s next film, “The Fall Guy.”

Ryan Gosling will be bringing the Kenergy to Studio 8H tonight, when the Oscar-nominated star hosts this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, airing on NBC and streaming online. But The Fall Guy and Barbie actor won’t be alone — country superstar Chris Stapleton will join Gosling as tonight’s musical guest. And if the episode’s teasers are any indication, tonight’s host is a pretty huge fan.

“Master Stapleton? ’tis I, Sir Gosling,” he says in the episode’s teaser clip, trying to figure out how to introduce himself to the singer. “That’s cool.” But Stapleton’s nowhere to be found in the dressing room, which leads Gosling to throw on his cowboy hat — á la Ken — as “White Horse” plays in the background.

Here’s how to stream this weekend’s SNL episode featuring Gosling and Stapleton (even if you’ve cut the cord).
Ryan Gosling is set to host Saturday Night Live on April 13, and it seems he’s feeling a bit jittery about meeting the musical guest, Chris Stapleton.

Ryan Gosling gears up to bring humor on Saturday Night Live On April 13
In a teaser for the upcoming episode, Ryan Gosling is seen rehearsing how to greet Stapleton. Wearing a Stapleton t-shirt and holding the singer’s photo, Gosling knocks on Stapleton’s door at Studio 8H. He tries out different ways to introduce himself, expressing his admiration for Stapleton’s music before feeling unsure about it.
As Gosling continues going full-Ken, donning the iconic white fur coat and singing for the crowd until he’s quickly interrupted by his “Fall Guy” co-star Emily Blunt, upset that he has deviated from their “Fall Guy” monologue plan, who tells him he’s “embarrassing himself.”

The jabs kept coming as Gosling continued to expel his Kenergy until Blunt reappeared, this time smacking him in the head with a glass bottle and eventually a chair. Surprised, Gosling appeals to Blunt’s softer side by recalling her recent experience with “Oppenheimer,” which was also Oscar-nominated.

“I mean, I know it was an inferior movie,” Gosling said throwing shade at Blunt. “It wasn’t. We like won everything, actually,” Blunt retorted. “But did you win people’s hearts? I don’t think so,” said Gosling.

Blunt agreed, and they combined for a Barbenheimer send-off for both of their characters, backed by dancers and signs.

Gosling previously served as host in 2015 and 2017. His past notable sketches include the beloved “Papyrus,” “Santa Baby,” and “Close Encounter,” in which he broke acting against “Barbie” co-star Kate McKinnon several times.

Last week, Gosling made a special appearance during the opening monologue of Kristen Wiig, who was celebrating her induction into the coveted “Five-Timers Club,” a group reserved for those who have hosted “SNL” five times. Gosling was joined by Martin Short, Will Forte, Fred Armisen, John Hamm, Matt Damon and Pual Rudd to help usher the former “SNL” cast member into the exclusive “Five-Timers” crew.

Saturday night’s musical guest was 10-time Grammy-winning country star Chris Stapleton, who won best country song with his track “White Horse” at the 2024 Grammy Awards. He has been a musical guest on “SNL” two other times, in 2016 and 2018.
