Jason Bateman Reveals He Was Almost Attacked by a Chimp When He Hosted 'SNL' in 2005 - Watch!

Jason Bateman is hosting Saturday Night Live once again!

The 51-year-old Ozark actor returned to host the sketch show on Saturday (December 5) for the first time in 15 years.

During his monologue, Jason looked back on hosting the show in 2005, and talked about being in a sketch with a chimp.

In his monologue, Jason revealed that the chimp tried to bite his face during the end credits.

“They hate that humans have faces and they want to remove them,” Jason jokingly recalled, before sharing footage from the 2005 episode where the chimp went in to bite Jason‘s nose.

“I am smiling but inside I’m thinking a monkey just attacked me and nobody cares,” Jason remembered. “They’re just hugging.”

He then showed another angle from that night, where you can see former cast members like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Seth Meyers smiling and hugging, completely unaware of what just happened to Jason.

You can check out the sketch from the 2005 episode inside…
