Foo Fighters give Kevin Hart a group hug in "SNL" promo

Rosalind O'Connor/NBCFoo Fighters get friendly in a promo for their appearance on this weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live. In the clip, cast member Leslie Jones encourages Dave Grohl and company to give host Kevin Hart a big group hug, which quickly becomes uncomfortable for the Jumanji reboot star.

In another take, Hart stands directly in front of the camera so it looks like he's as tall as the Foos in the background. Grohl tries to get Hart to stand with Jones and the rest of the band, but he refuses to leave his spot.

SNL airs live coast-to-coast Saturday, December 16 at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Coping with Chester Bennington's death has been "devastating," says Mike Shinoda

ABC/Randy HolmesLinkin Park's One More Light Live album, recorded during what would be Chester Bennington's final tour with the band before he took his own life on July 20, is out today. In an interview with Billboard, LP's Mike Shinoda opens up about how he's been coping with Bennington's death.

"Grief is a non-linear process," Shindoda says. "It doesn't have 'stages' that go in order, it has phases that come and go at random. Some people are having sad days, others are having good days, others are having angry days...add the constant stress and fear of things like the news cycle, and you've got some exceptional chaos on your hands!"

"I've tried to make it a point to share how I'm doing, mostly on Instagram and sometimes Twitter, especially when I feel like I'm making progress," he continues. "Coping with the end of this chapter is obviously devastating, but at the same time, it's also the beginning of the next story."

Releasing One More Light Live was also part of that grieving process.

"Everyone was at their very best [during the tour], especially Chester," Shinoda says. "He was singing better than I've ever heard him on stage. The idea to release this album came from our fans and friends, and I'm so glad they asked for it. It's a really nice way to showcase what a special experience each night was."

He continues, "And while I don't know what comes next for us together or individually, this album is certainly a beautiful way of looking back at the body of work we created with Chester."
