The star also recently returned from New York after hosting Saturday Night Live.

The Game Of Thrones alum got the chance to show off his comedic skills by taking part in several sketches, while musical guest, Tate McRae, also took to the stage.

Before appearing in sketches, the actor started the episode with an opening monologue. Jason was greeted with warm applause from the live audience as he took the stage.

He then revealed that his mother was also there to cheer on her son, humorously adding, “If you see her, be careful, she’s still recovering from giving birth to me.”

Jason said, “But I’m so happy to be here. I like this place. I love life! I love washing my luxurious hair in the morning with a full bottle of shampoo, and I love playing Aquaman because I love the ocean.”

He talked about his childhood and revealed that when he was younger, he dreamed of becoming a marine biologist.

“The problem was that even though I was born in Hawaii, I grew up in Iowa, which isn’t really known for its oceans.”

The star explained that he had been watching a movie called In God’s Hands, stating that he saw his cousin “in these 50-foot waves, so I went back to Hawaii to surf with my family, and I ended up ends up in a TV show called Baywatch.’

Momoa most notably portrayed the character of Jason Ioane in Baywatch: Hawaii from 1999 to 2001.

‘I call it the B-word. But I fell in love with acting, and I only stayed for a few seasons because you really don’t want to get stuck in the B hole,” he joked.

“And now I feel like my life has come full circle,” he told the audience.

‘I do a lot of work to protect our oceans and small island states. I even started my own water company to eliminate single-use plastic water bottles,” said Jason, referring to Mananalu Pure Water which he launched in 2019.

‘This work really means a lot to me. I mean it. We’re going to save the whales, the coral reef, and the sponge bobs, because Jason Momoa loves life.”

To conclude his opening monologue, the actor said a Hawaiian saying, which he said translated as: “Take care of the earth, take care of each other.”
