Sterling K. Brown Killed It On 'SNL' And This Sketch He Did From 'A Deleted Scene' In 'Black Panther' Stole The Show
This was arguably one of the season's best episodes.
There really isn't anything actor Sterling K. Brown can't do.
On the recent edition of Saturday Night Live, the This Is Us actor dominated sketches and offered up one of the best episodes of this season with his impersonations of rapper Common and HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson.
Brown even played up his short but impactful cameo in the latest Marvel superhero flick, Black Panther, as he took on the role as King T'Challa's great-grandfather. He is reunited with T'Challa to give him the rundown about the ancestral plain from the hit movie.
SNL regulars Leslie Jones, Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson join Brown in the gut-busting riff. Keenan Thompson, who played Uncle M’Butu, and Brown dominated the sketch.“You know how my old lady is one of them bald warrior women who guard the king," Thompson says, "Well, the other night, I made a suggestion she might wear a wig, just to be playful. I said, 'Damn woman, I’m tired of making love to Michael Jordan.' That’s the last thing I remember.”
In another sketch, Brown impersonates Ben Carson in a mock-promo for This Is US, which hilariously jabs at the misfortunes of the Trump administration.
“The real-life drama that’s happening in our government every day,” the tagline reads. “Critics call it ‘Like This Is Us, but without the parts that feel good. There will be hella crying.”
Twitter fell in love with Brown all over again. Users could not get enough of the actor.

Sterling K. Brown is good at... everything??? #snl
Would have preferred Common as the musical guest. And by Common I mean Sterling K. Brown reprising his role as Common from Family Feud. #SNL— Joe Dillard (@JoeDillrd) March 11, 2018
