The ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Jim Parsons hosted ‘SNL”s first post-Seth Meyers show on March 1, proving to the world that his comedic range goes far beyond Sheldon Cooper. Watch his five best moments below!

Jim Parsons was joined by Beck and new “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost when he made his March 1 hosting debut.

Jim Parsons Hosts ‘Saturday Night Live': The 5 Best Moments

1. Peter Pan & Tonker Bell: Okay, so the real star here was Aidy Bryant as Tinker Bell’s less polished half-sibling, but Jim certainly held his own as Peter Pan — and the skit was just wacky, fun, and hilarious in general.

2. Spotlightz: Acting Camp for Serious Kids: This returning sketch had plenty of material to work with with the Oscars being this weekend, and though Vanessa Bayer was — as always — the true kid star of the bit, Parson makes a damn adorable Matthew McConaughey from Dallas Buyers Club.

3. Jim’s Opening Monologue: Jim addressed the fact that his name is rarely — if ever — not associated with his alter-ago Sheldon, in a pretty funny bit called “I’m Not That Guy.” Kenan Thompson‘s Bill Cosby is always a welcome treat, and the multiple characters Jim took on proved that he would be game for anything.

4. 12 Years A Slave Casting: We cannot believe that they didn’t include Taran Killam in this strange little sketch about casting small, horrifying, racist roles in the Best Picture frontrunner, being that, you know, HE PLAYED A SMALL, HORRIFYING, RACIST ROLE IN THE ACTUAL MOVIE.

5. Colin Jost Joins Weekend Update: Okay, so Jim had noting to do with this, but Colin was a total pro as he took over Seth Meyers‘ post next to Cecily Strong.

What did you think of Jim’s hosting debut, HollywoodLifers?
