Kenan Thompson plays Ray Lewis on 'Saturday Night Live' with Seth Meyers.
What will Ray Lewis do if the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl next Sunday? If the version of the Ravens linebacker played by Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live is accurate, he will go to the 50-yard line at the Superdome, kneel down and ascend into heaven.
Thompson appeared as a face-painted Lewis during Weekend Update with Seth Meyers. He discussed his crying jags and other revelations during the three-minute segment. They included some of the following facts:
• Never heard the national anthem prior to last week's game (hence the crying).
• Wears earplugs to muffle the sound of his own speeches.
• Can't get that paint off his face.
Thompson doesn't sound much like Lewis -- it's EAAASY to EEE-NUN-cee-ate the wwwwords that he UUUSEs -- but has that head shake down pat. The only problem with the sketch: Everybody knows Ray Lewis does the squirrel dance before a big performance, not after.
