SNL Cast in the DC Universe

Batman: The Audio Adventures has me wondering how many SNL cast members have played roles in DC productions before, so I’ve made a list. In cases where players have portrayed multiple roles, I’ve pared it down to their most significant. Let me know if I’ve missed anybody!

(This list goes out to @JayeJ.Jimenez, DC and television super-fan, who’s been having a pretty hard time this week. Hope you feel better soon.)

Who else from the SNL cast and history would fit somewhere in the DC Universe, and who would you cast them as?

I’d love to see Martin Short as Mad Hatter, while Phil Hartman would have made a solid Max Lord.

He’s done it before!

The DC Mad Hatter. :wink:

I’d love to see Chevy Chase cameo as Clark Griswold in a DC movie.

After all, the Vacation movies are by WB and we know who owns DC, so it would finally confirm my 30+ year head canon that the Griswold clan exists in the DCU.

Just for the stunt casting alone… Colin Jost, husband of the MCU’s Scarlett Johansson, as any DC character.

Love that idea. Maybe as Nemesis, DC’s own black suited super-spy?

Nah… Something polar opposite…

And you know what, just for the right fit of it all: DAVID SPADE IS AMBUSH BUG!

I could totally see that.

“Mr. Luthor, my family and I got you something for Christmas.”

“Put it over with the others, Greaseball.”

How about Will Ferrell as Funky Flashman?

Well, Nemesis is an American spy. But I get your point.

What’s the opposite of a Black Widow… a White Martian, maybe? He could play Protex, the leader of Hyperclan.

Sure.
Also… Jane Curtin as Granny Goodness!

I could see him doing this up with the appropriate Ron Burgundy swagger.

Oh, that’s inspired. She’d kill it as Granny.

With Bill Curtis narrating, yeah?

I’m not sure a Funky Flashman story requires narration, but the right treatment could sell me.

It doesn’t, but given Bill Curtis’ groovy voice, it should be amended so as to allow BC to work his magic.

“Funky was looking to sell something special today.”

Leslie Jones as Amanda Waller!

I think she’d make for a swell Stompa.
