Kevin Spacey hosts Saturday Night Live season finale
It seems that the big guns are being pulled out for the last few weeks of Saturday Night Live. First, it was announced that Tom Hanks, who will probably be promoting his movie The DaVinci Code, would be hosting the May 6th episode along with musical guest Red Hot Chili Peppers. Now we learn from the fan site drivingmrspacey that actor Kevin Spacey will be hosting the May 20th season finale.
Spacey, who will be starring as Lex Luthor in this summer's Superman Returns, hasn't hosted SNL since 1997 (at least according his IMdb entry). This will place him far down the leader board in a tie with, er, Lindsay Lohan.
If you have been reading Jonathan Toomey's SNL reviews this year (and I know you all have), you know that this season has been a bit of a hit-and-miss, with the highlights being the pre-recorded sketches and the TV Funhouse cartoons. Let's see if the combined power of Hanks and Spacey will get the writers pumped to produce some great comedy.
