Watch: J.K. Simmons & Future Ghostbuster Kate McKinnon Reveal Alternate Ending To 'Casablanca' On 'SNL'

Over the weekend, Oscar nominee J.K. Simmons found his tempo hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the first time (fun fact: the actor last appeared on the show in 1999 when Jerry Seinfeld hosted). As per usual, no one actually stayed up to watch the episode and just waited for all the good stuff to land online the next day. So, start your week with a little “Casablanca” riff.

Joined by future Ghostbuster Kate McKinnon, this “alternate ending” to the Hollywood classic finds Ilsa all too eager to get on the plane and out of Rick’s arms. Yeah, it’s a one joke sketch, but it’s a pretty good one, and Simmons and McKinnon hit all the right notes. Watch below.
