Russell Crowe's Russian Mobster Is No Match For Leslie Jones' Super Ninja On 'SNL'

She is the wind.

Russell Crowe hosted "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and if we learned one thing, it's that he's an actor, not a comedian. But still, he gave it his best shot. 

The show took advantage of Crowe's dramatic acting chops -- since, as he pointed out in his monologue, comedy isn't really his strong suit -- casting him as a Russian mobster in the Leslie Jones-fronted "Shanice Goodwin" sketch. 

Jones, who plays a ninja in the spot, is really the focus here. She takes on Crowe and his incompetent crew of gangsters to free their hostage. She's probably the least sneaky ninja ever, yet she still manages to remain unseen and takes down the whole mob one by one.

She also gets Kenan Thompson to break character with a single cartwheel, which is probably the best part of the whole sketch. 

Watch above for yourself.
