'SNL''s acclaimed hosting gig with 'Scandal' star Kerry Washington may have made light of the racial controversy attached to the current season, tasking Washington with portraying a number of famous black female figures, though it seems the NBC sketch comedy series has in mind to correct the issue after all.

The past few days have given rise to a bit of 'SNL' controversy for the current season's failure to included women of color either among the cast or portrayed in sketches, but the latest host should at least answer some qualms.

'Peeples' Review

by Matt Singer May 8, 2013 @ 8:15 AM
If you asked me to sum up Craig Robinson's onscreen presence in a word, the one I'd choose is "likable." Even when he's playing a jerk or a heavy -- like the bouncer in "Knocked Up" or baseball star Reg Mackworthy on "Eastbound & Down" -- his inherent sweetness shines through. Nobody else could say the line "I would tear that ass up," and make it sound like a kind, sensitive compliment. That's Robinson's gift. Try as he might to be a jerk, he'll always be nice. He's the kind of guy you'd want your daughter to marry.
It's precisely that quality that 'Peeples' tries to play off of by casting him as Wade, a typically amiable Robinson character whose relationship with Grace (Kerry Washington) hits a snag when she refuses to introduce him to her family, out of fear of her stern father Virgil (David Alan Grier). But c'mon; he's Craig Robinson. How could anyone not like him?
