Jake Gyllenhaal Puts a Lot of Effort Into Signing ‘SNL’ Yearbook in New Promo

It takes a lot to craft the perfect, heartfelt yearbook message and Jake Gyllenhaal goes through the stress in a new Saturday Night Live promo ahead of his hosting gig released on Wednesday (May 15).

In the one-minute clip, SNL cast member Marcello Hernández approaches Gyllenhaal — who’s mid-practicing a Southern accent — and asks him to sign his yearbook in honor of the season finale on Saturday (May 18). The Road House actor then spends an excessive amount of time to think of a perfect message to write for Hernández.

“Enjoy, papi,” Gyllenhaal tells Hernández after all the drama and the effort, giving him a wink. When the comedian takes a look at the message, all it reads is “B Kewl” and signed “Jack.”

“Yo, you didn’t even spell your name right,” Hernández says, before noting, “Whatever. It’s a fake yearbook for a promo anyway.”

Sabrina Carpenter — who’s fresh off of scoring her first-ever Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit with “Espresso” — will bring her Eras Tour- and Coachella-tested performance skills to 30 Rock to serve as the musical guest for the upcoming episode. Gyllenhaal, meanwhile, is hosting for his third time.

Watch the promo below, and catch Gyllenhaal’s full episode of Saturday Night Live this weekend (May 4) at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC, before it begins streaming on Peacock.
