Image Credit: Janet Mayer/PR PhotosJude Law will be hosting Saturday Night Live March 13 with musical guest Pearl Jam. Law has hosted before, but you might not remember how he did — back in 2004, musical guest Ashlee Simpson’s lip-synching debacle overshadowed Law’s hosting skills. But now he has another chance to show his silly side, and boy do I hope he goes for it.

Law doesn’t play comic roles very often, but he was a really good sport with Jimmy Fallon a few months ago, and if he’s willing to play against his public persona as Captain Smoldering von Sexystare, who heads the HMS Handsome Brit, this could be a really fun episode.

Open goofiness, a song or dance number, maybe a lousy impression or two — I can see this hosting gig working out pretty well. What about you, PopWatchers? Do you think SNL can, er, lay down the Law?
