Scarlett Johansson's controversial casting choices were mocked by her husband, Colin Jost, on Saturday Night Live. During the Weekend Update segment, Jost joked that Scarlett would be playing Sammie Davis Jr. in an upcoming film. The joke was part of a Christmas Joke Swap, where the comedians write offensive jokes for each other. While the joke about Scarlett's casting was relatively tame compared to others, it gained attention due to her past controversies. Scarlett has faced criticism for playing an Asian character in Ghost in the Shell and a transgender man in Rub & Tug. Colin and Scarlett recently got married, marking her third marriage but his first.
