Tall, angular, and blankly attractive, Aussie Saltburn star Jacob Elordi confessed he wasn’t “much of a public speaker” in his monologue in this first episode of 2024. He’s not being modest.
The quick “let’s take some questions” format is generally reserved for a host that Saturday Night Live doesn’t know what else do do with, a strategy the show would employ intermittently throughout this below-middling return from break.
Elordi is strapping, has a great American accent or two, and is one of those up-and-coming young actors everyone is sort of waiting around to judge.
He is not yet a natural live sketch performer, as SNL kept casting him as “incredibly handsome guy” in sketches where his incredible handsomeness was the joke.
