“Saturday Night Live” crew members revealed that Ryan Gosling’s hilarious “Beavis and Butt-Head” sketch that aired in April was in the works for six years.

Hair stylist Jodi Mancuso and makeup artist Louie Zakarian told the Ankler on Monday that Jonah Hill was originally going to star in the bit when he hosted “SNL” in 2018.“Even at that time it was late coming into the show, so there wasn’t a lot of prep time, and I wasn’t fully happy with the wigs,” said Mancuso, 49. “Then I think we tried it again, and again I wasn’t happy with it,” she added. “So we fully gave up on it.
