Jason Momoa Wears All the Accessories and No Pants in a New SNL Promo

Whoops—actor Jason Momoa forgot his pants in a new promo for his November 18 Saturday Night Live episode with musical guest Tate McCrae.

Jason Momoa has returned to 30 Rockefeller Center's Studio 8H to host the show's pre-Thanksgiving episode, and a new promo looks back on a few of the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star's best moments from his first time hosting the show. 

How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

Never one to skimp on the accessories, Momoa arrives to 8H in the promo wearing sunglasses, a chunky necklace, and a bowler hat—which he joyously whips off as he whirls around in a celebratory reverie. 

Except, as cast member Ego Nwodim discovers when she encounters Momoa, he forgot one crucial garment: Pants. 

"Ya just can't be wearing your underwear," Nwodim informs Momoa. "This is a workplace." 

Momoa simply can't comply until he gives Marcello Hernández a big, pants-free bear hug, though.

Momoa's first time as Host was on December 8, 2018, though he also made cameos on the show in 2019 and 2020. His stint after Chalamet's turn on November 11 is particularly great news for fans of 2021 film Dune, in which Chalamet starred as Paul Atreides and Momoa played his aide, Duncan Idaho.

Jason Momoa!

Momoa first became a household name by portraying the character Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones—a role he parodied in his prior time on SNL—and subsequently playing Aquaman in DC's superhero movies. In 2023, Momoa also joined the Fast & Furious universe in Fast X as the erratic villain Dante. SNL season premiere Host Pete Davidson had a brief cameo in the film as well, so all roads truly do lead back to Season 49.
