Watch Paul McCartney’s Goofy ‘SNL’ Spoof + More
Plus: Pete Doherty making acting debut, the Roots working on soul-drenched movie soundtrack, and more.
- After poking fun at his Beatles hit “Yesterday” on Fallon earlier in the week, Paul McCartney appeared as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and filmed a hilarious digital short with Andy Samberg and host Paul Rudd. In the clip for “Stumbling,” — which features Samberg stumbling around Rockefeller Center — features Macca spoofing Berlin’s 80s hit “Take My Breath Away” and performing a “tiny harmonica solo.” Check it out below.
- Pete Doherty will make his movie debut in a film about 19th century French poet Alfred de Musset. The Babyshambles/Libertines singer will star opposite Charlotte Gainsbourg; production begins later this month. “I don’t know if I’m a good actor, but they say I am,” Doherty admitted. [The Guardian]
- Bob Dylan’s hand-written lyrics for “The Times They Are A-Changin'” fetched $422,500 when they went up for auction at Sotheby’s last week. The lyrics were purchased by a hedge fund manager and art collector, who outbid five other contenders. [BBC]
