Following last week’s Scarlett Johansson’s episode, Anne Hathaway will host this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” (watch her promos here), but in December the show will return to the standard of a white male lead, with Robert DeNiro, Paul Rudd, and Jeff Bridges set to host.
First up on Dec. 4: host Robert De Niro and musical guest Diddy-Dirty Money (made up of Sean “Diddy” Combs, Kalenna Harper and Dawn Richard).
On Dec. 11: host Paul Rudd and musical guest Paul McCartney.
On Dec. 18: host Jeff Bridges and musical guest Eminem. [Orlando Sentinel]
I could give a crap about DeNiro, since the guy in who was in Raging Bull and The Godfather: Part II was killed and replaced with a doppelganger who does Frank Caliendo’s DeNiro impression in the Focker movies.
But man oh man, Paul Rudd and Jeff Bridges? I’m not sure who I’m more excited about: the single most likable comic actor in Hollywood, or the Dude. Because Paul Rudd has a way of making simple phrases much funnier than they are (“Slappin’ da bass”; “Nude Tayne“), but the Dude, well… The Dude abides.
