Paul Rudd for Weekend Update!

Posted on

Hard to believe, but the divinely deadpan Paul Rudd has never hosted Saturday Night Live. He’s finally getting his shot on Nov. 15, so when I interviewed him recently for his hit comedy Role Models, I ran an idea by him: With new mom Amy Poehler now gone from SNL, I think he should cohost “Weekend Update” with Seth Meyers this Saturday! It makes sense: He and Meyers are pals, and he did star in a movie called Anchorman, after all. Check out Paul’s priceless response to my pitch at the end of this clip. And let us know who you think should fill Poehler’s seat at the news desk.
