Default Lebron to Host Season Premiere of SNL....

Quote:
James

Hoops star LeBron James will host the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live."
"It's nice to get people who aren't in show business to host," "SNL" producer Steve Higgins told Daily Variety. "Sports stars tend to be less frightened because they are used to performing in a live setting."

With James, who took the Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals this year, "SNL" hopes to reprise the successful perf of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who hosted the show last season.

Head writer Seth Meyers called Manning "a great sport." "He showed up and right off the bat wanted to do a skit where he was mean to kids," he said during the "SNL" presentation at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills.

"Saturday Night Live" exec producer Lorne Michaels said he is in talks with Maya Rudolph but expects all 11 thesps in the current cast to return to the show in the fall.

Thats cool...i just hope he is doing what he needs to do bball wise over the summer...

Damn Lebron is getting a lot of offers. He was pretty good in the ESPYs so I guess this is good. Yeah I hope he still is doing all that he needs to b-ball wise too.

I can't see him out-doing Peryton' episode on SNL. If you haven't seen it and want to laugh, it's a must see.

was Lebron good at the Espys? I didn't watch it but juding from what I've seen from Lebron I dunno about him hosting SNL... he's too stiff to be pulling comedy in my opinion. BUT again, I haven't seen the Espy so maybe the Espy proved me wrong?

All I watched was him opening the show in Hammer Pants singing his version of Britney Spear's My perrogative.
