Although actor Edward Norton isn’t known for bringing the laughs on screen, he exceeded his duties as host during this weekend’s Saturday Night Live. 

The dramatic actor graced the NBC late night stage for the first time ever on Saturday. He kicked off the show with a cameo-laced monologue, featuring Alec Baldwin and Miley Cyrus, and kept a decent comedic pace throughout the show’s sketches.

But what really stole Saturday’s show, and possibly the whole season, was the incredible Wes Anderson-spoof digital short. Although Norton wasn’t promoting any particular upcoming projects, he had most recently starred in Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and will be a character is the director’s forthcoming 2014 film, The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The digital short chronicles a quirky tale called The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders, a mock-horror film “directed” by Wes Anderson. Norton plays the Owen Wilson character flawlessly as the short highlights every detail that we love, and sometimes loathe, about Anderson’s iconic films. This is for film geeks only.
