Seth Meyers in Politico

Seth Meyers, who takes to the stage as MC for the White House Correspondents Dinner on Sunday, is profiled in Politico. Check it out here. 
Remarking on following up the President, 
Meyers said, "“In a two-horse race, I’ll be happy with second if first place is the president of the United States. Usually, I wouldn’t take that deal. With that said, I’m not just going to cede the title. We’re going to go out there and give it our best shot.”

Ed Helms to host SNL May 14

The full line-up for the remainder of season 36 was announced today. As previously announced, Tina Fey will host SNL May 7 with musical guest Ellie Goulding, a British songstress who performs a particularly good cover of Elton John's "Your Song".
Ed Helms, last seen in Cedar Rapids and due to reprise his role in the upcoming sequel to The Hangover, will host SNL on May 14 with musical guest Paul Simon. This will mark Paul Simon's thirteenth appearance on SNL.
Finally, Justin Timberlake will host the season finale with musical guest Lady Gaga. 

All in all, I would say that it's a pretty stellar way to finish out the season!
The Lonely Island are selling movie posters on their website now. And, to put it mildly, they are awesome. The posters are $19.99 and aside from the posters, there is also a host of other great memorabilia you can purchase.
