Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth made surprise appearances on Saturday Night Live alongside The Hunger Games co-star and host Woody Harrelson, who made numerous jokes about drug use throughout the show.

Saturday's episode was the third hosted by the latter star, who last took the reins in 1992, when he starred on the sitcom Cheers.

Kendrick Lamar was the performer, although Harrelson showcased his own musical skills himself.

Check out five highlights from the episode below:

1. Hunger Games support

In his monologue, Harrelson played a guitar and sang a parody of Taylor Swift's new songBlank Space. He was then joined by Hutcherson, Hemsworth and Lawrence, whose self-proclaimed bad singing skills were mocked by the younger actors. The three are promoting the new movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.

Harrelson joked about drinking and doing cocaine in the '80s and "smoking herb"...before the show, while Lawrence, in an apparent flub, joked about his past "stoned" demeanor.


2. Stoner Woody

Harrelson plays a New York stoner who expresses sheer joy outside after hearing a TV news report that states that a new pot law dictates that possession of up to 25 grams of marijuana will be punished by no more than a "slap on the wrist." Cannabis is illegal under federal law.

Harrelson lives in California, where pot is legal under state law if used medicinally, and supports marijuana law reform.

3 Alright, alright, alright...the princess is in another castle!

"Matthew McConaughey" also made an appearance alongside Harrelson, on Weekend UpdateTaran Killam portrayed the actor's True Detective co-star but his best impression was that of the sound effects of the fourth rounds of the levels of the original ‘80s Super Mario Bros. Nintendo video game.

4. Say "Crack" again

Drugs are referenced again in a skit set in a bar, in which Harrelson plays THAT guy, the annoying patron who kind of butts into your conversation. He keeps saying the word "crack." Say "crack" again. Crack.

5. Major makeout

Harrelson references a "legal speedball" and "Ambien" in this skit in which he plays a bar patron again. Kate McKinnon plays a stereotypical drunken woman (with a truly horrifying profession), who throws herself at Harrelson's equally wasted character and the two proceed to make out after last call.
