Lindsay Lohan to Host ‘SNL’ Season 39 Premiere?
Regardless of troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan's most recent comeback attempts, abysmal reviews of 'The Canyons,' or Oprah Winfrey interviews, it would seem as if the Hollywood machine has shifted its eye toward tearing down more prominent young starlets. Could hosting the September 28 premiere of 'SNL' be the latest stop on Lohan's apparent comeback tour then, or has the rumor mill churned out another turd?
RadarOnline reports that Lohan has been asked to host the September 28 premiere of the long-running NBC sketch comedy series, which would mark the actress' official induction into the famous "Five-Timers" club, having added Ben Affleck to its ranks with the May finale. “She is definitely considering doing it,” the supposed source said. “She loves the show and the people involved.”
And while we wouldn't mind Lohan granted the chance to make up for her uneven performance hosting a March 2012 installment, the current rumor seems largely to have been proven false. Not only does Radar misappropriate Lohan has having already hosted five times (four in reality), but 'SNL' insiders have responded to say "We have not locked in a host yet.”
Whoever ends up hosting the September 28 opener, equal attention will likely be paid to reported cast additions Mike O'Brien, John Milhiser, actress Noël Wells, and “Good Neighbor” performers Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett, all of whom step in to replace past season departures Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis. Seth Meyers will leave 'SNL' behind in 2014 as well, with Hader likely to return as Stefon for his exit.
We'll keep you posted on the real 'SNL' premiere host, but what do you think? Should Lohan be given another chance this coming season?
