Kevin Hart's 'SNL' Monologue Dishes On Failed 'SNL' Audition (VIDEO)

Kevin Hart hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the first time on Saturday, and wasted no time in his opening monologue settling some scores -- like, for instance, that he was rejected as an "SNL" cast member about a decade ago.

After doing an opening bit about a run-in with a homeless man in New York City, the stand-up comedian told a story about auditioning for the show's producers, who asked him to do impressions. Unfortunately, impressions aren't in his wheelhouse, but he impersonated former Mavericks and Nets coach Avery Johnson ("I found out white people don't know who Avery Johnson is"), Robert De Niro (using only facial expressions) and Denzel Washington in "Training Day" (despite not having seen "Training Day"). Needless to say, he didn't make the cut.

Check out the clip about to watch Hart's high-energy monologue. Do you think he should have made the cast?
