Kristen Wiig Returns to Saturday Night Live as Judice For Sound of Music Spoof: Watch Now!
The hills are alive with a sound of Judice! On the Dec. 7 episode of Saturday Night Live, comedic veteran Kristen Wiig returned to the show that made her a household name to reprise the role of Judice -- the girl with the large forehead, tiny Barbie hands, and awkward sentiments. Judice made her appearance in the Sound of Music spoof that opened last night's episode.
She played one of the Von Trapp children, who had some interesting incites into the musical's iconic songs.
The Sound of Music Live aired on NBC last Thursday, Dec. 5 to a large viewership but mixed reviews. Country singer Carrie Underwood starred in the main role as Maria Von Trapp, and after hearing some negative critiques, she tweeted on Dec. 6, "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight...1 Peter 2:1-25."
But SNL had no problem spoofing the talked-about production. Though they didn't directly reference Underwood or the talk around her performance, SNL cast member Kate McKinnon stepped up to play her role as Maria Von Trapp. Taran Killiam took on the role of Captain Von Trapp (which True Blood's Stephen Moyer played in the live show), and SNL vet Fred Armisen returned at the end of the clip as the Von Trapp family friend Max Detweiler, and along with Wiig declared, "Live from New York, it's Saturday night!"
