Rpattz and Kstew parodied on Saturday Night Live
By Kim Palacios
Just because Robert Pattinson won’t host SNL doesn’t mean we won’t see “him” appear on the show. An April 17th episode hosted by Ryan Philippe featured the host playing the Twilight star in a comedy sketch.
The main character of the sketch is “Mort Mort Feingold: Celebrity Accountant”, a role played by Andy Samberg. In the 4 minute, 40 second sketch, Mort Mort Feingold is portrayed as a disheveled, 50-something accountant, giving multiple celebrities financial advice in his small, equally disheveled office. Among his famous “clients” are Kate Gosselin (Kristen Wiig), John Edward (Will Forte), Tyler Perry (Keenan Thompson), and Shaun Whyte (Abby Elliott). Of interest to Twilight fans was the appearance of Kristen Stewart (Nasim Pedrad) and Robert Pattinson (Ryan Philippe) as Mort Mort’s client’s.
During their brief appearance in the sketch, fun was poked at Rob around being typecast in the Edward role, as well as his “terrible” sense of fashion. Philippe affected an exaggerated English accent long enough to explain, as Rob, “What I really want to do are those serious dramas, like ‘Remember Me’”, an idea swiftly dismissed by Mort Mort. In a misaligned response, Mort Mort replied “You make too much money to look this terrible.” And, turning his attention to Kristen, says “Sweetie, why don’t you get your boyfriend a new set of clothes?”
There’s much more to the sketch, but if you want to see it in its entirety, you should go ahead and watch the archived video on the Saturday Night Live official web site.
