Oooh, she looks like she could really teach a manchild to change!
Cecily Strong introduced a brilliant new character on last week's Saturday Night Live. After Weekend Update anchor Colin Jost reported that women are still "grossly underrepresented" in Hollywood, a bangs-sporting, glasses-wearing Strong came on as One-dimensional Female Character in a Male Driven Comedy.
Strong introduced herself as "Heather, from work," a coworker of Jost whom he probably never noticed because of her glasses. "I'm fun and crazy and surprising and hot and a girl. Confusing, right?" she explained.
Strong went on to nail pretty much every stereotype of these all-too-familiar characters, from sleeping in a jersey to eating burgers and fries like the guys to forcing the male protagonist to grow up. Of course, in the end, One-dimensional Female Character in a Male Driven Comedy decides to forgive Jost's flaws and stay at the record store with him.
I can't wait to see this character again on SNL and never again in a theater near me.
