Timberlake joins the Star-Studded 5-Timers Club on SNL

One thing SNL does best is welcoming back old friends.  Last night was Justin Timberlake's fifth time hosting the show.  This puts him into an exclusive club of hosts that includes Christopher Walken, Tom Hanks, John Goodman, and others.  Basically all of the hosts who were funny enough to have been cast members themselves.

It also brought back the traditional Five-Timers Club skit, and the stars that come with it.  Check it out:

The returning stars were:  Paul Simon, Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, and Candice Bergen.  Steve Martin in particular always cracks me up in these.  He plays the pretentious club member all too well.  Also coming back for an iteration of the "Dick in a Box" skit was Andy Samberg, his first appearance back since he left the show last season.

I look forward to Jon Hamm's future induction.
