Jason Momoa is The Man in capital letters. Saturday Night Live put the Aquaman hero to good use last night, using him in multiple sketches instead of hiding him the way they do with some hosts. Of course, they had to give him a Game of Thrones spoof, but they also shrank him down for a hilarious Elf on the Shelf sketch and had him hump a bedpost as Kate McKinnon's Tiny Tim made it rain on his sexy shirtless "extra" Christmas spirit.
It all started with Jason Momoa's monologue, which he did barefoot in bright pink pants. Momoa called himself an SNL superfan who always dreamed of doing the show. He also did some singing, so look out Chris Pine, you're not the only hero who can sing through a monologue.
In Khal Drogo's Ghost Dojo, Jason Momoa returned to his Game of Thrones Khal Drogo garb for an afterlife talk show hosted by Kenan Thompson. Some of the many, many departed GoT characters returned for the show, all played by SNL cast members. If only the faceoff between King Joffrey (Kate McKinnon) and Lady Olenna (Aidy Bryant) had continued a bit longer. Stay to the end, not only for the "Khal on the Wall" alternative to Elf on the Shelf, but the end scene takedown of AMC's Talking after-shows.

In an "Extra Christmas Carol," Jason Momoa showed up as a very "extra," sexy and fierce Christmas spirit. Stay to the end for Kate McKinnon's Tiny Tim making it rain on the pole-humping and now shirtless spirit:

Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
