January Jones & Joseph Gordon Levitt To Host!

Firstly - Robert Pattinson's not hosting SNL, at least in November! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

Yes, the November hosts for SNL have being revealed and they're kinda shocking choices.

  • November 7 sees Taylor Swift take to the stage as host and musical guest.
  • November 14 sees Mad Men star January Jones host with musical guests Black Eyed Peas.
  • Finally, November 21 sees the adorable Joseph Gordon Levitt hosting with musical guest Dave Matthews Band.

Thoughts? January Jones is a terrific actress as anyone who watches Mad Men will know. Betty Draper has displayed basically no sense of humour throughout the series so it's hard to know how January Jones will fare. But I don't remember thinking Jon Hamm would be a barrel of laughs & look how that turned out!
Joseph Gordon Levitt is an excellent choice. The guy looks like he could be a lot of fun and a JGL and Hall & Oates sketch is surely in the works (anyone who has seen (500) Days of Summer will know what I'm talking about!)

Black Eyed Peas - yay! I'm really feeling their latest album. I mean, Boom Boom Pow and I Gotta Feeling are some of the songs of '09, love 'em or hate 'em.

What do you think about these hosting choices? Overwhelmed or underwhelmed? How do you think Jones & Levitt will fare in the world of sketch comedy?
Comment, comment, comment!

Elisabeth Moss' rep has confirmed that she & Fred Armisen exchanged nuptials yesterday at The Foundry in Long Island City. Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of Jon Hamm's hosting stint, the day the pair first met.
Congratulations to the newly married couple!
