Jude Law Performs Hamlet on Broadway SNL

Posted By on Mon, Mar 15, 2010 at 10:48 AM

So this happened over the weekend: Jude Law went on SNL, but rather than plug his new organ-repossession futuristic action movie he just talked about playing Hamlet on Broadway, being typically charming and handsome though not very funny, but, but, managing to foist a fairly enjoyable CliffsNotes version of Shakespeare's most famous work on an unsuspecting TV audience, which is kind of commendable in and of itself. Here's Jude Law, educating the masses (sort of) when most of them aren't watching anymore.

A later skit about the Hamlet auditions wasn't bad either.
