NY Times Magazine recently did a profile on Megan Fox called “The Self-Manufacture of Megan Fox”. I didn’t read it all because for one thing Megan Fox isn’t that interesting, and for another, whenever I see the phrase “In the age of the 24-hour news cycle and hungry blogs…” I can’t stop sh-tting blood. Luckily the folks at Cinematical read it and were kind enough to pick out the good parts. Namely, the Hitler joke that got cut from her SNL monologue.
The writers of her opening monologue were having trouble coming up with a premise that pleased her. “There’s one specific pitch that we can’t do,” Fox said. ‘They wanted me to do a Q. and A. with the audience for the opening monologue. And Hitler is in the audience. Hitler stands up and says, ‘Why did you compare me to Michael Bay?’ ” Fox laughed. “Which is funny, but we can’t do that.”
I’m not sure why they couldn’t do that, but judging by her monologue that ended up making the show (video below) I can only assume the Hitler joke was rejected for actually being funny. Speaking of which, who told Bobby Moynihan he was funny? Was it Steve? That guy’s such a joker.
