Watch: 'SNL''s Hilarious Wes Anderson Movie Trailer, Plus: Anderson Parodies Himself in This AMEX Commercial

Oct 28, 2013

 

Ed Norton took on the role of SNL host this weekend with mixed results, but the actor who will soon appear in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel hit a high point in the series’ digital short. The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders found Norton wearing a mop of a blond wig, giving us his best Owen Wilson impression. The sketch was a Wes Anderson parody (in case the title didn’t give it away), with Alec Baldwin narrating. The premise: a group of very polite intruders threaten to infiltrate Wilson’s home. The Wilson family weapon of choice?: a photo of French chanteuse Édith Piaf. All the trademark Anderson pieces are present: stationary, vintage objects, and quirk for days. SNL can dish out the snark, but adorable parodies like this one always hit our sweet spot. 

If The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders isn’t enough to feed your Anderson obsession, check out this 2007 commercial for American Express starring the director. It’s like Anderson parodying himself — and it’s probably the strangest credit card commercial we’ve ever seen. The Grand Budapest Hotel is in theaters on March 7.
