LOS ANGELES, Nov 12, (Agencies): Timothée Chalamet took center stage on Saturday Night Live this weekend, just a few days after the tentative approval of a deal between SAG-AFTRA and the AMPTP, effectively concluding the 118-day strike.

Hosting for the second time, the 27-year-old star seized the opportunity to celebrate actors returning to the spotlight for film promotions, particularly his upcoming Christmas movie, Wonka. In a whimsical moment, Chalamet, cane in hand, sang a parody of the classic “Pure Imagination,” crafting lyrics that echoed the end of the strike.

“Now the strike is over, and it’s like we’re all returning to this magical world,” Chalamet declared, introducing the parody with opening notes that resonated through the venue. “Come with me, and you’ll be, in a world of shameless self-promotion,” he crooned to the cheers of the audience. “It’s okay, I can say, that my new film, Wonka, is out in theaters December 15th.”

The humor continued with Chalamet’s witty take on other film recommendations, quipping, “If you want to view a three-and-a-half-hour film, go see Killers of the Flower Moon. Or just wait for part two of Dune. Just make sure to use the bathroom.”

In an unexpected turn, Marcello Hernández joined the stage, later playfully referenced by Punkie Johnson and Kenan Thompson, rapping about their shared status as celebrities with “baby faces.” The performance added an amusing twist to the evening, showcasing the SNL cast’s creativity in blending humor with the entertainment industry’s current happenings.
