Jake Gyllenhaal Spoofs Wicked's 'Defying Gravity' During Broadway-Themed 'SNL' Skit

Jake Gyllenhaal flies in the air while spoofing the song “Defying Gravity” from Wicked during a sketch on Saturday Night Live‘s latest episode.

The 39-year-old actor made a surprise appearance on the show during the “Airport Sushi” sketch alongside host John Mulaney and musical guest David Byrne.

In the sketch, Pete Davidson plays a guy who surprises everyone by buying sushi at LaGuardia Airport. People then start coming out of nowhere to explain what’s going to happen if he eats the sushi and they spoofed Broadway shows like The Phantom of the Opera, Annie, West Side Story, and more in the process.

David, who just appeared on Broadway in his show American Utopia, made an appearance in the sketch at the end as the air traffic controller.
