Bill Pullman’s Monologue

…..Bill Pullman

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Bill Pullman!

(cheers and applause)

Bill Pullman: Thank you! Thank you! It is really great to be here! Big year! Big year for Pullman. Get to host the “Saturday Night Live” show and I play the President of the United States of America.

(big cheers from audience)

Bill Pullman: Yeah. I’ve played a lot of different characters in a lot of movies, mostly romantic comedies. But I get to sometimes kick ass… and that’s why I did “Casper”.

(audience laughs)

Bill Pullman: But when you play the President of the United States who saves the world from an alien attack, you get a whole new level of respect and it even appears to make you sexier. In fact, this week – this week! Someone told me I was named one of the sexiest men of the year by Playgirl magazine.

(The audience laughs hard. Pullman nods and grins in full confidence.)

Bill Pullman: You know what that means? MEN find me attractive.

(Pullman takes a brief pause.)

Bill Pullman: Anyway, we got a great show. New Edition is here. So stick around, we’ll be right back.
