Edward Norton Does His Best ‘Rain Man’ Impression on ‘SNL’ [VIDEO]
Edward Norton did his best Dustin-Hoffman-as-Rain-Main impression during his skit as “The Numbers Guy” when he hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ last night. He played a savant who can count anything … or so the henchman he works for said.
The savant was called in to tally a million dollars for a drug deal with quickness, but his supposed impressive ability with numbers was anything but.
Norton’s Hank had talents that consisted of the astonishing ability to count cups on a table, the number of people in a room, how many legs on a table and other basics than any person could do. There were no insanely impressive stats or numbers, and that’s what made the skit a gut-buster.
Norton’s monotone speaking voice was also a nod to Hoffman and his memorable role.
