It was fun coming up with another bunch of suggestions for Lorne Michaels to hopefully take into consideration. Again, for the sake of simplification, I chose three hosts for every month that SNL tends to air.
New rule this time: There is no one on this list that has hosted before. For a few, it was very surprising, but here are my picks for crazy talented people and first time Saturday Night Live Hosts:
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is amazing, and this girl even auditioned for SNL. Rachel can sing, dance, and write some funny truths, making her the perfect premiere host.
How has this sweet baby angel of a man not hosted yet? Is his glee not infectious? Is he not of the Star Wars clan? And British?! Do it.
Chelsea has worked with Andy Sandberg on Brooklyn Nine Nine for four years, and in doing so, built her character Gina into the Goddess of all. Gina is the MVP glue of the magic that is the Nine Nine.
Donna from Parks and Recreation is my everything. That Woman can get it. I saw Retta on a recent Late Night with Seth Meyers episode and it reminded me how damn hilarious she is.
This man is a hot mess. After seeing him in different states of ruffled, I wish to see him take on SNL. Badly.
Oh, the bridesmaid that was never a bride. Mulaney was a writer on SNL for years until he moved on, never making it to featured player. This was a shame, and I would like to see it rectified.
The BBC series Miranda is the perfect showcase for her awkward brilliance, and she killed it as Melissa McCarthys backup in Spy.
Can you believe he’s never hosted? After the John Wick movies, you know you want this.
The talented papa bear that is Terry Crews hosting the Thanksgiving episode? Yes.
Clark is one of those improv and classically trained actors. So strange, and so good at delivering.
If you do not see why he belongs here, out with you!
Dratch Christmas? You’re welcome.
After Hulu’s The Aliens and Netflix’s Chewing Gum, I am so onboard with more Michaela.
She is lit with some serious fire, and so knows how to aim it.
Liev is the personification of naughty humor wearing a monocle.
I could list Star Trek, but the main reason Cho earned his place on my list is Selfie. It was a show that died too young, and it made me fall so in love with him.
Valentines Day episode? Bring in the badass redhead.
I mean, right?
Allison is very intimidating. She is a Groundlings trained improv that also Burlesque dances. The awesome of that baffles and amazes me.
Again, I am curious as to how Dev would play with the SNL crew. I feel that they would gel together beautifully.
How has this man not won an Emmy for his Brooklyn Nine Nine role?!
I’m just plain obsessed with Ruth:)
My sugar angel sunshine. Everybody Wants Some and Scream Queens are full of funny actors, but Glen stands out. So much, it’s almost creepy.
So perfect for the Mothers Day episode. Katy was boss in Mike and Molly, and she rules in American Housewife.
Fresh off playing Gigi on broadway, this girl is taking her role in Powerless and having so much fun with it.
Larry so deserves the finale spot after his Nightly show got cancelled. This man can write a skit like nobodys business and deliver the hell out of it.
Please just make Leslie Jones and Cecily Strong the co-hosts of Weekend Update already.
