SNL Castmembers Defend Lindsay Lohan

As you all know, Lindsay Lohan was on SNL this weekend and the critics are tearing her performance apart.

Ok, that ONE joke in the “Scared Straight” sketch was hilarious. The one where she says, “I’m Lindsay Lohan” lol, so GREAT, that’s her NAME!

So anyways, she was not-so-great on SNL this weekend, but the SNL castmembers have been coming to her defense.

Newer castmember Taran Killam says, “She was fantastic and a really good sport.”

Ok, thanks for that soundbite…Taran Killam’s PR! He could at least TRIED to sound like he meant it.

However, Killam says he was really impressed with her ability to make fun of herself.

“She let us go there, and we tried to handle it as gently as possible,” says Killam, “She was the one who was, like, ‘Go to town!’ She really wants to turn it around, and she was great. I was surprised. She was a real trooper.”

Show star Bobby Moynihan said he was impressed with Lindsay’s ability to improvise, “She started throwing stuff in,” he said, “It was a hip-hop morning-show sketch, and at one point, she just took the microphone and said, ‘Preach!’ I was like, ‘What? Go Lindsay!’”

Wow, she threw in ONE word? Those improv classes her agent forced her to take are REALLY paying off.

Bobby also added, “She really wanted to do a good job, and I think she did it...She was super nice, very calm and normal.”
