Pratt Is Statham in Cut SNL Sketch

Jurassic World star Chris Pratt became Jason Statham in a Saturday Night Live sketch cut from his appearance back in September.

Selling Jason Statham's Jason Steakums, Pratt put to use his best English accent to impersonate the Furious 7 and Transporter star. Pratt is also wearing a bald cap and leather jacket to further hit home his Statham impression.

And while the SNL sketch is rather short, it's long enough to now make us want a Pratt and Statham buddy comedy film. Check it out here:

Evan Campbell is a freelance news writer who streams games on his Twitch channel, talks about Nintendo weekly on the NF Show, and chats about movies and TV series on Twitter.

Why You Can’t Play as a Woman in Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

In an interview with IGN, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Director Hiromasa Shikata said the story for the upcoming co-op 3DS game is the reason players cannot play as a female avatar.

Zelda: Tri Force Heroes tasks up-to-three players to work together fight monsters, solve puzzles, and gather materials to make outfits.

Co-writer and co-rights holder Bob Gale agrees with Zemeckis, and both claim they'll never sign off on a remake as long as they live. Zemeckis is hopeful that his estate will find a way to block its production even after his eventual death.
