Jeff Bridges is hosting Saturday Night Live this week, with musical guests Eminem and Lil Wayne. As you can see from this promo, Bridges is promoting two movies, TRON: Legacy and True Grit. I think the Coen Brothers joke is funnier than the TRON one:

Bridges seems to be taking his hosting duties seriously enough that he was moved to shave his beard, presumably for maximum facial expressions during sketches:

I assume there’ll be parodies of both films, but I also hope SNL gives Eminem the opportunity to take part in some of the sketches. Em can certainly be poker-faced-amusing when he chooses to be, as he’s proven on SNL before.

What are you hoping for in this pre-Christmas SNL?

Comment away below, and then come back here early Sunday morning for my piping-hot fresh review of the show; thanks.
