Watch Natasha Lyonne impersonate her former landlord Michael Rapaport in cut Saturday Night Live sketch

The sketch, which would have aired Saturday but was cut for time and instead posted online as a web exclusive from the filmed rehearsal, parodied the ESPN morning show First Take and featured Chris Redd as Stephen A.Smith, Kenan Thompson as Kendrick Perkins, Chloe Fineman as Molly Qerim, and Lyonne as actor Michael Rapaport.
