Marvel star Jonathan Majors jokes about Idris Elba’s good looks on ‘SNL’ debut: ‘It humbles you’


On his first “Saturday Night Live” host, Jonathan Majors’ “The Harder They Fall” made fun of co-star Idris Elba, talked about working on Red Lobster and revealed another title for his new Marvel movie.

The majors began discussing their monologue on the production of Netflix’s Western “The Harder They Fall,” which competes against rival Elba. “It was fun to shoot that movie but if you ever want to feel bad about how you look, definitely spend two months next to Idris Elba. It will humble you.”

The Emmy-nominated “Lovecraft Country” actor called his life a “crazy journey”, ranging from being a “military brat” to a 17-year-old “homeless, living in my car, working in the Red Lobster and the Olive Garden.”

Reflecting on what they learned in those days, Majors said: “You know, I learned that Red Lobster and Olive Garden are owned by the same parent company, so you can work in both places without any problems.”

“Side note: It’s crazy how many people got their start in Red Lobster,” said Majors, before adding Nicki Minaj and Chris Rock as both Red Lobster alums. “Now, I don’t know if they’re putting Cheddar Bay biscuits, but it’s working.”

“That experience, it taught me a lot,” Majors said on a more serious note. “It taught me that if you believe in a project and you work hard, great things can happen.”

The Major will next appear in Marvel’s upcoming “Ant-Man and Wasp: Quantamania” (theaters July 28, 2023), “or the black community likes to call it ‘Black Panther,'” the actor joked.

He concluded his monologue by explaining how the “greatness” of hosting “SNL” made him remember his grandfather’s advice: “Grandson, at first everything is big but you walk on it, you face it, and very soon it is too small, you put it in your pocket.” This is incidentally the tagline of the next Ant-Man movie! “
