Saturday Night Live: Drake spoofs Degrassi in SNL promo (Video)


This weekend sees the NBC show Saturday Night Live return for the first time in 2014 and for the first time since Jimmy Fallon hosted the show before Christmas. The host for the show this week will be music artist Drake, who also happens to have a history with acting. 

Drake used to star on the Canadian show Degrassi: The Next Generation before he made it big in America and his acting past is referenced in his first promo for SNL.

It is yet to be seen if Drake’s acting abilities have improved since he was on Degrassi, but we will find out this weekend. Drake adds his name to the list of hosts this season who are joining the show for the first time in their careers. Edward Norton and Kerry Washington were first time hosts in 2013 and now Drake will kick off 2014 as a first time host of the show.
