Jake Gyllenhaal Signs Marcello Hernandez’s Yearbook in ‘SNL’ Promo

Jake Gyllenhaal leaves Marcello Hernandez asleep in his chair while waiting for a yearbook signature in the promo for this season’s Saturday Night Live finale.

When castmember Hernandez approaches Gyllenhaal in the clip, the actor is seated in an empty Studio 8H practicing his lines.

“It’s so cool that you’re hosting the finale,” Hernandez says. “Do you mind signing my SNL yearbook?”

Gyllenhaal enthusiastically agrees and promptly bores Hernandez to sleep during a montage of his philosophizing over what to write. When he finally finishes, Hernandez jolts awake only to find Gyllenhaal has written rather simplistically “B kewl” and signed his name incorrectly, “Jack.”

“Whatever,” Hernandez says as Gyllenhaal exits. “It’s a fake yearbook for a promo anyway.”

Gyllenhaal will host this week’s season 49 finale with musical guest Sabrina Carpenter. This will mark his third time hosting, after stints in 2007 and 2022.

This season has featured a star-studded lineup of hosts, including former SNL castmembers Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Kristin Wiig and Maya Rudolph, and A-listers such as Emma Stone, Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin. Both Bad Bunny and Dua Lipa doubled up as hosts and musical guests.

Earlier this week, NBC announced it has scheduled a three-hour primetime special to honor SNL’s 50th anniversary next year. The program, which will also be live, is set to air Sunday, Feb. 16, from 8-11 p.m. ET.
