The Shape of Water’s Fish Man quits acting to focus on art in SNL’s Fish Dreams.
Fish Dreams follows the fish man from the movie The Shape of Water. Just as his career is on the rise, he decides to quit acting and focus on his passion for art. Due to time, the Saturday Night Live sketch was cut last minute but you can watch it online.
The fish man (actor Kyle Mooney) turns down a role in Fishfellas, a new Scorsese movie, to open a gallery for his photography work. In his absence, Roger, another fish man, becomes an instant acting success. The sketch is dark but very funny and well worth 5 minutes of your day.
Although the sketch is based on The Shape of Water, you don’t need to know anything about the movie to enjoy it. (And watch for the cameo at the end!)
