On Tuesday, “Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with “This is Us” star Sterling K. Brown, who was very “excited” about his upcoming gig hosting “Saturday Night Live” on March 10.
Sterling shared in NYC, “Being up on that ‘SNL’ stage is like coming home. I lived in New York, I went to grad school here. To be in the city and to host the show that I've watched — it’s been in pop culture forever. The fact that they asked me to do it... I didn't think it was going to happen.”
As for how he learned about the gig, Sterling revealed his publicist called him and asked, "So, how would you like to host 'SNL' on March 10?" His response? "I was like, 'What?'... Then I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, that would be cool.’”
Does he have any sketch ideas? Sterling joked, “I have an idea for a ‘This Is Us’ sort of parody that would involve Leslie (Jones) playing Beth... There's a possibility of an O.J.-type thing. We can do Brian Fellows. We can do anything, it doesn't matter — I'm down to play!”
Sterling has also been busy partnering with Clorox, which brought hundreds of local volunteers together to clean and transform a former school into a new Thrive Collective arts and mentoring center for at-risk youth in Harlem. While revealing the new space, Sterling pointed out, "Just a couple of months ago, it was an abandoned schoolroom badly in need of some coats of paint, and we got 250 members of this community to get together to clean this place up and make some new possibilities for these kids.”
