Michael Che Jokes Scarlett Johansson Has Come Between Him And Fellow Emmys Host Colin Jost: ‘You Ditch Me!’

Ellen DeGeneres quizzes Colin Jost about his romance with Scarlett Johansson during an appearance on her show alongside fellow 70th Primetime Emmy Awards host Michael Che on Friday.


DeGeneres asks Che if he feels left out that Jost is dating the actress, to which he replies: “Actually not anymore because I’m dating a celebrity too. She’s a Times Square Elmo.”


“You’ve changed a lot,” Che says to his fellow “Saturday Night Live” “Weekend Update” host. “You don’t invite me places and when you do you ditch me.”

The talk-show host then asks Che if she can set him up, to which he jokingly replies: “Is Beyonce single?”


Jost and Che also inform DeGeneres that they found out via the press that their “Saturday Night Live” contracts had been picked up by NBC for the upcoming 44th season.
