Who would like to see Ms. Knightley host Saturday Night Live?
As a lifelong SNL buff, I would be highly interested if that were to happen. The key is to not be one of those annoying hosts who relies exclusively on the cue cards (like Annette Benning). They should only be used for back-up. If possible, know your damn lines (like Natalie Portman). If you want to be a good SNL host, you've got to WORK at it, damnit.

And what types of sketches would be funny for Keira K? I would find it amusing to see her in one of those cones that injured dogs must wear on their necks. You know -- like, she's being introduced to the parents of a new boyfriend or something, and comes in with one of those things on. Maybe at one point, she starts scratching it profusely....

I dunno. I'm just sayin'. (And, yes, I know that cone thing was totally random. Sorry, but it's funny to see a person in one of those things. Believe me, I know.)

She's too good for SNL. Maybe if it was the SNL it was 15 years ago...

True, but it IS getting better....
SNL is always hit or miss. You never know when an episode will be funny. Take the recent Justin Timberlake episode, for example: hilarious.

I had no interest in the guy until he did so well on SNL.

I know! And he's getting a lot of good reviews for Alpha Dog, so I kinda wanna see that.

I also don't know if Keira's FUNNY enough to make snl work. She's quirky, but I don't know if I see her as funny.

Quirkey is precisely why something weird like the dog cone would work....
Seeing her do a straight up impression or something would probably be lame. Weirdness would become her.

That's why I would love to see her in a Wes Anderson movie.

I'd rather see her on Madtv. SNL hasn't really been any good since Chris Farley died.

Madtv would be like Keira living in a trailer park. But yes, it's somewhat funnier.

Yes, MadTV is practically unwatchable....
Jake Gylenhall (spelling) hosted SNL last night. He was a good host. I like that Jake Gylenhall.

Thumbs up over here.
