Jerry Seinfeld Crashes ‘SNL’ Weekend Update As “A Man Who Did Too Much Press” With A Warning For Ryan Gosling

Jerry Seinfeld crashed Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update segment, and Colin Jost introduced him as “a man who did too much press.”

The Seinfeld star has been on a press tour promoting his Netflix movie Unfrosted, which he directed and stars in.

Seinfeld came to the Update desk, not knowing where he was, asking if it was a podcast. Jost pointed out that the actor was even on The Rich Eisen Show, something Seinfeld had forgotten he had been on.

“I like Rich Eisen, I find him accessible,” the comedian said.

Jost asked Seinfeld how someone might know if they’re doing excessive press with the actor saying, “That’s the thing. You don’t know until someone who cares about you shows you a video package and you see yourself with these people with these names… Hoda, Maraca, Chanel, Vlad…”

Seinfeld acknowledged that he couldn’t undo all the press he had done but wanted to help other people, directing words of wisdom to the Barbie and The Fall Guy star, Ryan Gosling.

“If you are struggling with press, you’re not alone,” Seinfeld said. “I’m talking to you Ryan Gosling.”

He continued, “When I started doing press for Unfrosted, I was like you—funny, good-looking. Now, look at me. Do you think this is how I wanted to spend my 26th birthday? But you can get clean.”

Seinfeld was interrupted by a call from the Spanish-language network Univision, who was also about to interview him. As the segment came to a close, Seinfeld reminded everyone he was going to be on The Kelly Clarkson Show doing more press.
