“Saturday Night Live” dusted off its classic “Celebrity Jeopardy” skit for the show’s 40th anniversary special, with Will Ferrell reprising his role as a long-suffering Alex Trebek surrounded by inept stars.
The skit brought back “Celebrity Jeopardy” favorites Sean Connery (Darrell Hammond) and Burt Reynolds (Norm Macdonald), along with Justin Bieber (Kate McKinnon), Tony Bennett (Alec Baldwin), Christoph Waltz (Taran Killam) and Matthew McConaughey (Jim Carrey) — complete with the Lincoln-loving actor’s pre-recorded voiceover.
The gameshow sketch even featured a video daily double from Bill Cosby (Kenan Thompson), which, naturally, was pulled as soon as it began to run. “Oh dear god, no. I’m very sorry — we filmed that in June!” protested Ferrell’s flustered Trebek.
