SNL: Jennifer Lawrence to Host; Samuel L. Jackson Drops F-Bomb in Christmas Episode

Jennifer Lawrence to Host SNL“I volunteer as SNL host!”

Filmdom’s Katniss Everdeen aka Jennifer Lawrence will host the first Saturday Night Live of 2013, to air Jan. 19.

Lawrence’s gig was announced during this weekend’s SNL Christmas episode, which opened with the Manhattan Children’s Chorus singing “Silent Night” in remembrance of those who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting… and also found Samuel L. Jackson blurting (most of) the F-word during a cameo in a “What’s Up With That?” sketch. (Kenan Thompson lightly scolded the film star, saying, “C’mon…. That costs money!”)

Joining Lawrence, a Studio 8H first-timer, as musical guest will be the American folk rock band The Lumineers.

Given the unpredictability of who will/will not do well as SNL host, what’s your gut saying about JLaw?

    Choir was nice until they laughed and said “live from…” Tasteless. Bad.

    • Amy says:

      Seriously?! You just called a children’s choir tasteless?

      It was a moving moment on A COMEDY SHOW. They cut to black for about 5 seconds before they said Live from New York.

    • dude says:

      LOL the CHILDREN were tasteless? Get over yourself. It’s a comedy show. Would you prefer they cry while saying “Live from New York it’s Saturday night!”? They were on a big TV show, let them have their moment. Just because a horrific tragedy occurred, doesn’t mean the world should cleanse itself of joy. Oversensitive people like you always looking for something to complain about are one of the biggest problems with society. The world has to walk on eggshells now.

    Only losers watch SNL at this point. The show blows. Way past its expiration date. Enjoy the loser skits losers.

  13. Mike says:

    She is so wierd in interviews, in a funny way, so I’m very excited. SLJ did that unpurpose and unprofessional, but I laughed anyway and Thompson made it even more funny.

  14. Isaac says:

    JLaw? Shortening it like that makes me think Jude Law.

  15. Steven says:

    Samuel L. dropped “bulls—” too, right before Kenan moved on to the tight-lipped girl from Portlandia.

  16. Julio says:

    Sam Jackson tweeted that he said “Fuh,” not the f-bomb. He cops to the BS, though — said Keenan Thompson was supposed to have cut him off but missed the mark.

  17. Coro says:

    They didn’t edit it in the Mountain Time airing, so they must not be too worried about it!

  18. Ronnie says:

    Ugh gross. One episode I won’t be watching.

  19. Line says:

    KRISTEN F-ING WIIG WAS THERE!!! THIS WAS THE BEST GIFT THEY COULDVE GIVEN MEFOR THE LAST EPISODE SO SHORTLY BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!
    I wished though the goodbyes would’ve been longer

  20. S. from E. now says:

    OMG, that is amazing! She was the No. 1 on my “People who need to host SNL asap”-list. x) can’t wait!

  21. JJSask says:
