Jason Momoa Childhood Dream Job Revealed in Delightful SNL Monologue
Jason Momoa hosted SNL and shared his childhood dreams of being a marine biologist, leading to his acting career.
Over the weekend, Jason Momoa graced the Studio 8H stage for the second time to host the sketch comedy series, Saturday Night Live. The Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom star shared a personal anecdote about his childhood, revealing that he had aspirations of becoming a marine biologist while growing up. Despite being born in Hawaii, Momoa spent his formative years in Iowa, which is not exactly known for its oceans. However, a pivotal moment came when he watched the movie In God's Hands, which was shot in Hawaii. Witnessing his cousin surfing massive waves, Momoa realized that he needed to return to Hawaii to pursue his passion for the ocean. This decision ultimately led to him being cast in the TV show Baywatch.
Momoa expressed that his life has now come full circle as he actively works to protect the oceans and the creatures that inhabit them. The actor's heartfelt monologue was well-received by fans, who appreciated his natural charm and charisma. Notably, Momoa's hosting stint on SNL followed his Dune co-star, Timothée Chalamet, who hosted the show the previous week after the actors' strike came to an end. Chalamet humorously referenced the strike in his introduction, singing a parody of "Pure Imagination" to the delight of the audience. The return to SNL after the strike was a moment of celebration for the actors and the entertainment industry as a whole.
