The star-studded Lion King cast was revealed earlier this month, featuring Beyoncé as Nala, Donald Glover as Simba, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, among others. But according to a new sketch on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, they weren’t the only celebrities who tried out for roles.

The clip shows SNL actors as Eminem, Mary J. Blige, James Corden and Kit Harington, each auditioning for various roles in the remake. The highlight, unsurprisingly, was Cardi B and Offset’s Timon and Pumbaa audition. Played by Girl Trip‘s Tiffany Haddish and Chris Redd, the couple cuddled as Cardi B sang a rendition of “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.”
