Keke Palmer wants her turkey seasoned thank you


Keke Palmer will host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time in December. 3, alongside musical guest SZA.

Although the “No” star has been acting since childhood, “SNL,” she said, is a “unique experience” that Amy Schumer has been helping her prepare for.

“I’m over the moon excited. I can’t wait,” Palmer told CNN in a recent interview. “I know it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m really excited about it and I’m looking forward to doing it. I think it’s going to be a unique experience, but also familiar territory. And then it’s going to be fun to see how they do it, you know, on their side. Because I love to draw.”

“Amy [Schumer] He actually told me about it and was guiding me through the whole thing,” he added.

Palmer said he looks at the hosting gig as a kind of performance “on Broadway.”

“I just want to entertain, y’all and have a good night,” he said.

An entertainer since childhood, Palmer knows she’s having a moment right now, but she said she’s keeping her feet firmly planted on the ground because she’s seen the ups and downs of Hollywood firsthand.

“You know, the entertainment industry is fun that way. There’s going to be times in your life when everybody’s thinking about you and everything’s always so exciting, and then it’s going to be quiet and then it’s not going to be so trendy or it won’t be a moment,” he said. “I definitely feel like there’s a fashion moment going on [for me] and it’s fun and exciting and I love being able to continue to explore different avenues of entertainment… No moment lasts forever.”

Palmer’s star rose further over the summer with the release of director Jordan Peele’s No, which he wrote with her in mind.

He said it was a “crazy” call.

“Jordan is such a talented person and someone I’ve always wanted to work with again after doing ‘Key & Peele’ and seeing how he’s continued to evolve as a creator,” Palmer said, adding, “Then I read the script . , I love the character. I love the sci-fi and adventure world, but then I was like, man, this character is so unique. It’s such a rare combination that you can play as a woman. It was an arc so great that it would have a chance to go from comedy to drama.

Palmer said he hopes to work with more directors.

“There’s a lot of people I think I could have fun working with. I’d love to work with Samuel Jackson again. I’d love to work with Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg. The list goes on. I’d love to work with Jordan,” he said. “Quentin Tarantino too, it’s very poignant and everything is very extreme in terms of entertainment. Like, it’s always going to give you a movie and a movie experience.”

For now, Palmer will be happily home in Chicago with her parents for Thanksgiving. He has a current partnership with McCormick seasoning and said he even takes the company’s 10-spice box with him when he travels.

“There’s no reason for me to go to anyone’s house this holiday and they don’t know how to season their food,” she laughed.

However, she will not have this problem at home. Palmer said her father does all the cooking and she gets a break.

“I’m resting and leaving,” he said.
