[VIDEO] SNL’s Beauty and the Beast Parody – Willem Dafoe as Maurice

It’s rare that four-time Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe gets to act in a comedy, so a lot of people are paying attention. Saturday night live this week as an actor hosting the show for the first time. Despite the blizzard, Dafoe showed up and booked clinics for other film actors whose skills didn’t always translate to live television.

In one of the best sketches of the night, Disney’s Belle Beauty and the Beast (played by Chloe Fineman) uses a magic mirror to look at her father after she is kidnapped. In the film, Belle’s father runs to her for help after she is kidnapped; in SNLversion of, that’s not his first stop.

As any parent can tell you, free time alone in the house is a rare thing that you should take advantage of. Dafoe, as Belle’s father, certainly knows that. After checking around the house to make sure no one else was around, he started doing all the weird things he couldn’t do with his daughter nearby.

After lighting a few candles and putting away all the pictures – except, oddly enough, a picture of a horse – he turned on some French pop and started dancing. Think Christopher Walken in that Fatboy Slim video but sexier?

SNL Beauty and the BeastBelle tries to get all the inhabitants of Beast’s castle to stop watching, but they don’t want to. After all, TV didn’t exist in those days. What else is there to do? Belle’s father began to wrap himself in a riding cloak. “Aw, I love this guy! He’s naaaastay! Mrs. Potts (Punkie Johnson) rings the bell.

After a brief moment of sadness with a photo of his deceased wife, things went wrong again. He remembers hugging her, kissing her, and her spanking and biting him, all before Belle smashed the mirror in embarrassment.

In addition to the stellar performance from Dafoe, Pete Davidson fans certainly satisfied one of their fantasies when they saw the comedian transformed into Beast. He was almost unrecognizable under makeup until he saw his signature early on in the sketch. Also, surely someone out there adores Mikey Day as a lampstand or Kyle Mooney as a mug?
