Oscar-winning actor J.K. Simmons' "SNL" hosting gig back in January wasn't exactly met with wild critical acclaim. But we may never know how things could have panned out, had NBC aired "Grandpa" -- the cut-for-time sketch, recently resurfaced by Mashable, which finds the actor at an assisted living home playing an unhinged grandpa who really gets a thrill out of embarrassing his family. Do not be fooled by the Mister Rogers cardigan -- this guy has a mouth on him.
