Saturday Night Live may have had their best debate sketch of the year last night. The Mitt Romney, Barack Obama head-to-head gave viewers another opportunity to see the impressions from Jason Sudeikis and Jay Pharoah, but that was not what made this one so great. The town hall format gave a lot to make fun of, creating a second dimension to a bit otherwise focused on the two arguing with one another.
Cast members involved in asking questions included Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, Bill Hader, Bobby Moynihan, and Fred Armisen. Other roles were filled by Aidy Bryant (Candy Crowley) and Taran Killam (Tagg Romney.) Cloud Atlas star Tom Hanks was also in on the action with a very unexpected cameo. The actor is in town promoting his new movie and he is a friend of the program, thus the appearance.
