Emmy-winning actor Sterling K. Brown is having a moment: Promoting the hit Black Panther, the This Is Us star hosted the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, and by all accounts nailed it, reports EW. He spoofed his tearjerker NBC series with one focused on the Trump administration called This Is US, ("Like This Is Us but without the parts that feel good.") Brown portrays Dr. Ben Carson, whose wife reassures him he'll be a great surgeon general, then laughs hysterically when told that he'll be heading up HUD. Brown also brought the tears to his opening monologue, repeatedly breaking down in a This Is Us spoof, notes the Hollywood Reporter. More clips in the gallery. (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
