Scarlett Johansson, I mean she is a mega star and leading up to that point in time. She was she was an a lister then. She certainly is an a lister. Now what I love about scar jo is I think early on in her career she came off as very stuffy but I don't think that that was her necessarily because she totally got pigeonholed as like the hot girl. Uh So I think she tried to break out of that a little bit, I think she tried to take on some very serious roles so that she didn't get all of these stereotypical blond roles. Um And I'm glad that she did that because she is a very talented actress and I love her in this universe. But what I love even more is that she really doesn't take herself very seriously, like any time she's been on SNL she seems like a lot of fun. Um and she's really broken that down so bravo to her for taking this on and she wasn't the original casting choice for this role who was Emily blunt and I don't see how that would have worked. I don't think it would have worked out at all. We love Emily blunt, we've talked about her in in in into the woods, uh coming up in the next month or so, we're going to do mary Poppins returns, so be on the lookout for that. We have a repeat guest coming back, which we're very excited about. She's a phenomenal actress. I don't think she could have pulled off this Black Widow thing. I don't know that she can come off that tough. I think she's just too sweet, you know, and I don't think that even has anything to do with having her in my head is mary Poppins. I think it's just she doesn't have I don't think she would have given it the same rough around the edges
