It's been 25 years since Woody Harrelson hosted Saturday Night Live
. The year was 1989, and now he's back and acknowledging that very year is a popular Taylor Swift album title
Harrelson began his monologue by saying, "With all due respect to Miss Swift, I think I know a little bit more about 1989 than she does." He then has his own hilarious lyrics to the singer's new single "Blank Space."
He sings about that time in his life, “The Berlin Wall fell down… I think I had a mullet…After that I just forget. Oh wait I remember. I was on a show called Cheers.”
A lot has changed for the 53-year-old since that year as he has been in many movies including the popular Hunger Games
franchise. The surprise last night was that a few of his fellow Hunger Games cast members
decided to join him for his monologue!
When Liam Hemsworth, 24, and Josh Hutcherson, 22, came on set, the former Cheers actor asks if they’re there to help him sing, and Hutcherson responds with, "Well actually we weren't even born in 1989."
Then in a moment that makes the audience scream, their fellow Katniss, Jennifer Lawrence comes on stage. In a funny moment, Harrelson is so excited that Lawrence, 24, is there that he hugs her leg and exclaims, "This is amazing! The real Taylor Swift is here!"
She replies, "Woody, I'm not Taylor Swift, I'm Jennifer, we've done about 10 Hunger Games movies together."
Even though she's no Taylor, she still sings! The monologue ends with the four of them singing together and Harrelson confusing the year for 2016 in another great SNL moment
