Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Plays A Gun-Slinging Bambi In Live-Action Saturday Night Live Skit
Saturday Night Live capitalized on both Disney’s latest pull for live-action classics and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s aptitude for action flicks on March 28. Guest host Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who called himself “franchise viagra” during his musical monologue, slipped into a deer suit to play the beloved woodland creature, Bambi, in a live-action sketch.
Cecily Strong played Michelle Rodriguez, Jay Pharoah was Tyrese Gibson, and Taran Killam imitated Vin Diesel — Johnson’s Furious 7 costars, who were all supposed to be rough and tough versions of Bambi’s forest friends.
“When I was a boy, they took away my mother, now it’s time for them to pay … deer-ly,” Johnson quipped, putting a spin on the classic Disney tale.
