Well, is it suddenly starting to feel like 2005 to anyone else? Well, it may as soon as you hear the latest announcement coming in from NBC: Vince Vaughn is stepping in as the latest host for “Saturday Night Live.”
Officially, the star of the upcoming “The Internship” (starring his former “Wedding Crashers” partner-in-crime Owen Wilson) is going to host the April 13 show, one week after Melissa McCarthy comes back for her second go-around as host. This is the first time that Vaughn has hosted the show since the late 1990s, when he was still a rising star in the business.
For Vaughn, this has to be one of the best sparks that his career has had in some time. Save for a few assorted roles here and there over the past few years, but mostly he has been out of the spotlight ever since the end of his public relationship with Jennifer Aniston and the ho-hum success of such movies as “Four Christmases.” He could ultimately be a good fit for “SNL,” though: he is a natural entertainer, is great thinking on his feet, and also has some experience on television already. While he’s going to have a pretty high standard in having to come after shows hosted by Justin Timberlake and McCarthy, this is a good choice for the show considering that they just can’t get the “Suit & Tie” singer to come back again for at least another year or two.
