Jim Carrey is hosting Saturday Night Live this week, with music act The Black Keys. Carrey’s go-for-broke physical comedy is always an asset on SNL, where sketches are sometimes saved by the performers’ reactions as much as by the punchlines.

Carrey is promoting his movie I Love You Phillip Morris, a “smaller” film than, say, True Grit. (Hey, I wouldn’t mind seeing Carrey do his version of Rooster Cogburn, an opportunity Jeff Bridges passed up a few weeks ago.)

Oh, and The Black Keys? I’m a fan:

So what sketches are you hoping SNL comes up with for Carrey? In the political-comedy area, I suspect we’ll be in for some John-Boehner-cries-too-much jokes. Any other guesses?

Please weigh in below. Then come back early tomorrow morning for a piping-hot, fresh review of the episode.
