Sam Rockwell opened his “Saturday Night Live” monologue by talking about how he’s gone from being a character actor to a leading man. He then did a song-and-dance routine that had him acting like a romantic lead and an action star. But then in his first sketch, a parody of a kids show called “Science Room,” he accidentally dropped a F-bomb. See the video below of Rockwell’s “SNL” monologue and him cursing in a skit.

This marks the first time Rockwell has hosted “Saturday Night Live.” The actor is on a roll these days. Last Sunday, he won the Golden Globe Award for best supporting actor in a motion picture for his performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. And he was honored again on Thursday with a Critics’ Choice Award in the same category. There’s a good chance Rockwell will be nominated for an Oscar and also walk away with a SAG Award next Sunday for his portrayal of a police officer, whose department is being questioned by Frances McDormand’s character for its poor handling of the rape and murder of her daughter in their town.

Rockwell’s next role is also generating buzz. Later this year, he can be seen as former president George W. Bush in the film Backseat about Dick Cheney, perhaps the most powerful vice president ever. Word is the actor nailed Bush’s look, voice and mannerisms for the movie, which stars Christian Bale as Cheney and Amy Adams as his wife Lynne. Steve Carell is also in the movie, playing Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Leading up to Rockwell’s appearance on “SNL,” he was a guest on Thursday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” The actor talked about being on “Saturday Night Live” and told Fallon, who was a cast member for years, “I’m psyched.” He then asked the late-night host, “You have any advice?” to which Fallon replied, “There’s no advice. They’re all pros… Just trust everybody.” Rockwell said his only previous experience doing sketch comedy like that was when he was in an improv group with Margaret Cho and Aisha Tyler in high school.
