Chris Hemsworth Puts Kate McKinnon in Dirty Dancing Choke Hold For SNL Promo — Watch!

Nobody puts Baby in a choke hold!

Chris Hemsworth gave fans a taste of what's to come when he makes his Saturday Night Live hosting debut on Saturday, March 7 — and sadly for Kate McKinnon, Dirty Dancing is not on the schedule.

The Thor hunk features in a few skits with McKinnon in the promotional trailer for the hit late-night show. And while McKinnon had dreams of flying through the air in Hemsworth's muscular arms to recreate the Dirty Dancing lift, turns out what she got was more of a choke hold!

Admitting he's never watched the classic '80s movie, Hemsworth then goes on to reveal he's capable of controlling Winter Storm Thor, before showing off his weight lifting skills, with the help of two very tiny weights!
