Gabourey Sidibe Shows Off Funny Side In “SNL” Promos. Gabourey Sidibe is already bringing the funny with her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig, but the episode hasn’t even aired. Instead, the new promos show a different, gun-wielding side to the “Precious” star. Promoting her appearance on this Saturday’s “SNL,” she appears with cast member Andy Samberg In a series of four TV spots, available for online viewing and airing now through Saturday. In two of the clips, Sidibe and Samberg get cozy, while in the other two, Samberg is left screaming. “It’s okay. Take off your pants,” Sidibe urges Samberg after he reveals he too was called “Precious” in school. In another clip, Sidibe jokes she gets mistaken for Bruce Willis a lot, whipping out a gun on Samberg and yelling John Mcclane’s famous “Yippee-ki-yay” line from “Die Hard.” Sidibe’s shown her goofy side since she’s hit the talk show circuit and awards show red carpets promoting her very serious Oscar-nominated turn in “Precious.” The 26-year-old hosts “Saturday Night Live” for the first time Saturday, April 24th. MGMT is the musical guest.
