Does TV have a bigger, more beloved comedy star right now? Glee has made Lynch a star, but comedically she can cover a lot more ground.
UPDATE: On August 11, Glee boss Ryan Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter that Jane Lynch will host SNL in October 2010.

He's talented, he's charming, and he's in one of the summer's biggest movies (Inception) — Joseph Gordon-Levitt is an obvious choice. Plus, he proved his chops when he hosted last season.

When Kanye West speaks, the world listens — even if it's just to say ''wait, what?'' His Twitter alone proves the guy's a comic genius, and the time has come to bury the SNL hatchet.

Everyone loves The Kids Are All Right, and Moore deserves a comedy do-over after her stint on 30 Rock. A Boston accent is no actress' friend.

How has Leonardo DiCaprio never hosted SNL before? Right this wrong, America!

He's going into his final year on The Office. He's been everywhere this summer, promoting Despicable Me and Dinner for Schmucks. He's hilarious. This is what we call a gimme, folks.

Roberts has reclaimed her rightful place in the spotlight with Eat Pray Love, but she hasn't done straight-up comedy in almost a decade. Come back to us, goofy Julia!

SNL is due for a True Blood spoof — only with Abby Elliot as Sookie, and Ms. Paquin as Bill.

The man threw Pacey-Con 2010, so we know he has a wonderful sense of humor and feels comfortable mocking his own image. Win!

Everyone loved King James... until that ESPN ''special.'' Oy. His 2007 hosting stint was solid (for an athlete), and a return performance could wipe the general Q-score slate clean.

With an Oscar nomination under her belt and Wall Street 2 on the horizon, Mulligan could be a sleeper pick for host. Young and cute never hurt anyone's chances either.

Ferrell has already returned as host twice since he left the cast in 2002, but... it's Will freakin' Ferrell. More, please.

Speaking of "more, please," Tracy Morgan last hosted at the beginning of '09. 'Nuff said.

What better way to cap off the mysterious, hoax-y seeming ''documentary'' phase of his life than with a hosting gig? Oh, with a shower and a shave? Well, after that.

Just when Avatar chatter finally died down, it's set to be re-released at the end of August. Sam Worthington's nice and all, but give us the radiant Saldana.
