- Tina Fey is guest hosting “Saturday Night Live” in April, which probably means another Sarah Palin impersonation! “It’s inevitable that we’ll try it, at least,” Fey told the AP. “We’ll see if it makes it to air.” Now, if they could just get Amy Poehler back to do Hillary Clinton. [AP]

- London’s Globe Theater has commissioned its first play written by a woman, “Bedlam” by Nell Leyshon. The Globe, where William Shakespeare staged his plays, was closed from 1642 until 1997. Not until now has a female playwright had her work performed there.

Jon Hamm hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend — for no real reason other than his undeniable hotness, seeing as he doesn’t have a movie to promote and “Mad Men” is on hiatus — and the results were delightfully … weird. In the digital short, above, Hamm plays a sexy saxophonist named Sergio who emerges during the most inopportune moments after a curse is placed on Andy Samberg’s character. For the record, Jon Hamm Covered In Birth Goop is still as sexy as Jon Hamm NOT Covered In Birth Goop. Keep reading »
I missed the new episode of “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, but caught the latest digital short on Hulu. It’s hilariously … odd? Keep reading »
One of my favorite albums of the year is the Julian Casablancas solo record Phrazes for the Young — if you’re a fan of The Strokes, especially their first record, and you love Julian’s voice as much as I do, buy this album, like, now. One of the bonus tracks on the album if you download it off of iTunes is “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which originally was a skit on “Saturday Night Live” featuring Horatio Sanz, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Kattan, and Tracy Morgan. Last night, Casablancas performed on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and the host, as well as Sanz, came on stage to assist him as he sang the holiday tune. Check it out above and remind yourself of the original, after the jump… Keep reading »
If you watched James Franco hosting “SNL” this weekend, then you might have noticed a little bit of a theme … homosexuality. Almost every skit contained some sort of gay reference. Hmmm … let’s see: He played Latin singing star Rico Garlanda, danced in footsie pajamas, portrayed James Dean exchanging secret Santa gifts with Liberace and Vincent Price, and finally engaged in multiple, incestuous man-on-man kisses (with tongue). Interesting. He said in his opening monologue that every move in his career is calculated. What shall we, your adoring audience, take this to mean, Mr. Franco? Is pretending to be gay part of your “performance art”? Or could this just be a ploy to perpetuate rumors that you’re gay and confuse your fans? Stay tuned to the Franco gallery for the next clue.

I had uncomfortable feelings about this “Saturday Night Live” skit where Kenan Thompson and Blake Lively make fun of Elin Nordegren allegedly beating up Tiger Woods. Ever since the Woods/Nordegren shiz-nit went down over Thanksgiving, I’ve been noodling a blog post about how I’ve heard and read nothing condemning Nordegren’s what-sounds-a-lot-like domestic violence against her husband and the fact that he seems to be covering for her.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and while it was an improvement over January Jones’ epic failing the previous week, the episode was meh. The best moments were definitely JGL’s singin’ and and dancin’ and back-flippin’ in the opening monologue (above), as well as his turn as Jason Mraz on “The Mellow Show,” featuring an appearance by Dave Matthews as Ozzy Osbourne, after the jump.

This weekend, January Jones‘ guest-hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” turned out to be a disappointing failure. Fart jokes? Really? But at least the “Mad Men” princess got a few giggles out of me with a “Ladies’ Guide To Party Planning.” The best part is when she has to go to the bathroom and leaves for the woods with a paper bag.
