Robert De Niro, Paul Rudd, and Jeff Bridges to host 'SNL'

Robert De Niro will be talkin’ to us … on the Dec. 4 episode of Saturday Night Live, according to NBC. The star of the upcoming Little Fockers — who has hosted twice before — will be joined by musical guest Diddy-Dirty Money. The next week, How Do You Know headliner Paul Rudd will host for the second time with musical guest/living legend Paul McCartney, while Dec. 18’s show will be hosted by TRON: Legacy‘s Jeff Bridges, returning for his second stint with musical guest Eminem. Can we expect Shy Ronnie to make his second appearance of the season?

    Well..two out of three ain’t bad.

  • Joe Pesci

    I’ll see everyone December 4th during my lame guest appearance!

    • Rock Golf

      Good. Now go get your shinebox.

    Even if Rihanna makes an appearance with Eminem I think it would be unlikely for another Shy Ronnie digital short. She’s too classy to steal the spotlight that way when she’s not even the musical guest.

    Unless, of course, if Eminem joined the short and did a duet with Shy Ronnie. Which would be utterly amazing. A rap battle of Eminem and Shy Ronnie.

    I am looking foward to Rudd since he is always funny and Bridges since he is an amazing actor, but I dont know what to think of De Niro hosting yet.

    • LOL

      Rudd will be good. DeNiro has been terrible in his previous appearances. I hope The Dude makes an appearance in the Bridges show.

    You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin’ to? You talkin’ to me? Well I’m the only one here. Who the f*ck do you think you’re talking to?”

    De Niro has had some great films and a lot of memorable lines.

    • Rock Golf

      I’m with Alex. The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle is my fave De Niro film.

  • Rebecca

    De Niro again?! Why can’t they understand that he’s a horrible host? He has no range and always looks at the cue cards. It’s not like Christopher Walken where his constantly looking at the cards adds to the humor. What a let down.

    • jstwhite

      100% agree.

    • Zoe

      Rebecca – That is the FIRST thing I thought of when I saw De Niro’s name. He stares at cue cards and delivers his lines haltingly–showing that he’s either bad at memorization or is AWOL from SNL rehearsals. He’s a great actor, but the SNL style is definitely not his forte.

    • Anno

      I also agree. Maybe he’ll prepare better this time and not just use the gig as a chance to push his new movie.

    • bringbackrocky

      I agree on DeNiro. He’s been awful any time he’s on the show. And, by the way, isn’t Christopher Walken way overdue to host again? Just saying.

  • meh

    DeNiro’s a brilliant actor but he’s a terrible host. And I can’t wait to fast-forward through Diddy and Eminem.

  • Kara

    Robert DeNiro has down may have been the worst SNL host is history.

  • reb

    My boyfriend Paul Rudd? Awesome! And DeNiro and Bridges ain’t half bad either. DeNiro’s sketch where he’s the military officer detailing the potential terrorists he’s hunting is arguably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

  • Jim

    That’s a pretty rock solid lineup by star-power standards. Hope this lights a fire under the collective ass of the writing staff.

  • jstwhite

    Thank you all for confirming what I also thought – Robert DeNiro is a great actor, and my vote for the WORST SNL host ever (at least you knew Steven Seagal would be bad). Bridges, oddly enough, is probably my favorite actor today, and it’s pretty hard not to like Paul Rudd. A perfect 2 for 3.

    • Terry

      I blame the writer’s for Seagal. You take one of the least verbal guys around and have him play motormouth Andrew Dice Clay? I would have had him break an arm in every skit.

  • Ripley

    When is Daniel Radcliffe going to host? Or Jim Parsons? Let’s mix it up a little.

    • Jackie

      Ripley, you just named two of my dream hosts :) It’ll never happen, but I would someday love to see Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki co-host.

      • Ripley

        That’s way outside the box – I totally agree!

    • Erica

      They for sure need to have Jim Parsons host

  • Henrietta

    i ahve always loved Jeff Bridges but not Tron not my thang. When is he hosting YES!

  • Barry

    At least 1 good musician – Sit Paul – and 2 horrible rappers.
