Michael Che Tricks Colin Jost Into Making Joke About Scarlett Johansson on 'SNL' - Watch!

Michael Che got the last laugh!

During the winter finale of Saturday Night Live on Saturday (December 19), Michael was able to trick Colin Jost into making a joke about his new wife Scarlett Johansson.

Each year right before the holidays, the “Weekend Update” hosts write jokes for each other to read live for the first time during the show.

In the last joke Michael wrote, he was able to poke fun at Scarlett – which clearly took Colin by surprise.

“It was announced that Creed singer Scott Stapp will play Frank Sinatra in an upcoming movie,” Colin nervously first started to read. “But the good news is Sammy Davis Jr. will be played by Scarlett Johansson.”

The jokes pokes fun at Scarlett‘s past controversies, where she was accused of whitewashing and appropriation, when she infamously played a Japanese character in Ghost in the Shell.

Colin didn’t seem offended by the joke, as he ended the segment with laughing.
