SNL’s Take on the Papal Changeover Includes Child Actress Quvenzhane Wallis

Last night's episode of Saturday Night Live was hosted by comedian Kevin Hart. In one of the best sketches, he played nine-year-old actress Quvenzhane Wallis, who stole the show last week as the youngest person ever nominated for a Best Actress trophy at the Oscars.
