Ryan Phillippe Hosts Saturday Night Live: What Up With That?
Ryan Phillippe seems about as natural a choice to host Saturday Night Live as Charles Barkley, until you remember that Phillippe has a co-starring role in next month's MacGruber. And while he was certainly passable as host -- this wasn't January Jones territory -- the question must be asked: How does Lorne Michaels let Phillippe host an episode and not demand an appearance from MacGruber? This is marketing 101-type stuff! Okay, sure he mentioned the new movie during the opening monologue -- a very funny bit that featured other recurring characters hoping for their own chance on the big screen -- but that was all. Talk about a missed opportunity! Check out the monologue -- and some crazy ridiculousness from Ke$ha -- after the jump.
True story: Keenan Thompson gets funnier every episode. But the most hilarious skit of the night belonged to Ke$ha. She was right about her comic skills! Oh wait, this wasn't a skit? Ah. That's awkward.
