Live from New York, it’s a two-time Oscar winner, and a guy with the bluest eyes you’ve ever seen! Robert De Niro and Paul Rudd have been tapped to host episodes of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Both actors have already appeared on the show in the past, do you remember De Niro’s cat-lady skit? What about Rudd playing the sleazy music video director behind Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” parody? Hopefully these two can add some much needed life to the lackluster series.
According to EW, De Niro will take to the SNL stage on December 4 in promotion of his latest installment in the Meet the Parents franchise, Little Fockers. He’ll be joined by musical guest Sean “Diddy’ Combs and his group Dirty Money. This will mark De Niro’s third appearance on the show.
Next, Rudd will host on December 18 to promote his new film, a romantic comedy called How Do You Know. He’ll be joined by the tunes of the legendary Paul McCartney. Shut the front door! SNL has picked a musical guest who isn’t a pop princess or an androgynous looking boy toy? We’re in shock!
What do you think about De Niro and Rudd joining returning to the Saturday Night Live stage?
