Taylor Lautner's 'SNL' promos: Ideas for sketches?

The promos for Taylor Lautner’s Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend reference the fact that he plays a werewolf in The Twilight Saga: New Moon and that he’s roughly half the age of much of the cast (he tells Kristen Wiig she reminds him of his mom). I was waiting for a joke about him being clothed for once, but I guess some things are too obvious. Regardless, I’m looking forward to Lautner taking center stage. He’s game (see: his mini-motorcycle race against Jimmy Fallon) and he’s physical (see: the adorable asskicker in 2005). Secretly, I’m hoping Taylor Swift pops up for either a monologue shout-out or some kind of sketch about the two Taylors trying to avoid the paparazzi on their friendly dates. I’m also hoping there’s a sketch about all the crazy projects Lautner and his agents must be getting pitched now. Feel free to use my Gymkata remake idea, folks.

What are your ideas?

    I actually was thinking today it would be so funny if Taylor Swift made a surprise appearance, especially after she mentioned him in her monologue. I just hope the inevitable Twilight spoof is actually funny like the one they did when Swift was on.

      Calling it now: worst SNL of this season.

      Unless Bon Jovi show up in an SNL Digital Short to save the show (as per Rihanna last week).

      • Kalie

        I don’t think it could possibly be any worse than when January Jones hosted.

      • innocent_me

        Gotta agree with Kalie. I think the JJ-hoted episode was BY FAR the worst. Having never seen Mad Men, if I base my opinion of January Jones solely on her performance on this show, I’d wonder how she ever landed an acting gig. She was AWFUL. But so was the rest of the show…

        “Having never seen Mad Men”

        Well then why the hate? No one on Mad Men is bad…if Tay sucks he sucks, it won’t be the end of the Twilight world. Sh*t happens…not everyone’s funny.

      • Short Circuit

        I remeber that song from Full House!! If they play that on SNL it will be THE BEST EPISODE EVER.

    • lauren

      i would be funny if they had a taylor swift shout out, or a sketch about them having the same name!

      • Mike

        Wait, why would that be funny?

      • Melia

        yes that would be very funny

      • amj

        Chelsea Handler has already done the same name thing..and in a hillarious way

      • Jimbo

        Even Mad TV wouldn’t do something as stupid as that.

      • Anne

        I don’t think it would be that funny. I mean….so they’re dating, and they have the same name. I’d say if that’s all they can come up with for him to talk about, they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel. lol

      • OMG



  • TheObserver

    Enough with the Gymkata remake!

    • John

      Never stop, Mandi! You keep dreaming your dream!

  • Sarah T.

    I agree, it would be hilarious if Taylor Swift did a surprise appearance since she mentioned him and did the spoof of Twilight when she was on. I think it would be kind of funny if he did the opening monologue shirtless too (not that I’m secretly hoping for that…). He’s made comments about how he wants to keep his shirt on and the fact that he had it off so much in New Moon. Not only would it get the ladies going but it could be pretty funny with the right monologue (as in, he gets mobbed by a bunch of Twilight mom’s and they rip it off of him onstage so he has to do it without his shirt on or he just decides midway thru that he’s not used to wearing it and it must be taken off, right then!).

  • A.J. Simon

    Use him as little as possible and hope this Disney demographic Lorne Michaels seems to be after is just a phase. Get some actually talented actors please – Bryan Cranston would be great. And ease up on the overused Kirsten Wiig – NO MORE GILLY!!!

    • a

      Isn’t it strange then that theses so called “Disney” stars are prducing some of the best episodes of the season, meanwhile “talented actor” from shows like Mad Men are producing some of the worst episodes in years!

      • Chris

        The whole season has been mediocre. Calling Taylor Swift the “best” of the season is like being the called the Tallest Gnome. Or the Fastest Turtle. Or the Smartest Republican (zing! let the flame wars commence!). You get the idea.

      • jimshorts

        taylor swift was awful. taylor swift’s impression of kate gosselin was painful. that sketch with her and her girlfriend was atrocious.

    • Tom Brazelton

      As much as I have been displeased with SNL’s transparent attempts to attract 13 year-old’s with their choices for hosts this season, long term, it makes sense. You have to replenish the fanbase at some point. SNL wouldn’t be around for 35 years if the 20-somethings who embraced the show in the mid 1970s were their largest segment of viewers.

  • Elizabeth

    They need to have Jimmy Fallon come on as Robert Pattinson…

    I’m in – that kid is so stinkin’ cute – I’ll put up with lame sketches.

    • Dee

      LOVE that idea!

      • Elizabeth


    • I know

      Jimmy as Robert! He’ll be hella “bothered”.

    • Chris

      The first time I read this, I was thinking Jimmy Kimmel. Oops. But then again….

    • amj

      I will second that idea as well!

  • Kate

    I would be willing to bet they might ask him if he could recreate the 2005 butt kicker thing not for funny purposes but to get the audience very jazzed up for lame sketches (maybe the 12:30 hour?). I am betting a spoof of Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” video might occur.

  • Ambient Lite

    Taylor Swift surprised me as a bright and funny host. I’m not a fan of her music, but she completely rocked her hosting duties and it was fun to watch.
    I hope Taylor Lautner surprises us all too. I know everyone loves to hate him, but he really is a decent actor, expecially considering his age. See ya on SNL, Mr. Black!

  • Madd

    I’m hoping that, like Zac Efron and Taylor Swift, he will surprise me and be a great host.

  • Ambient Lite

    What about Sharkboy and LavaGirl all grown up? That could be funny.

    • Kelly

      He could sing a parody of “Dream, Dream” from Sharkboy and Lavagirl. That song gets stuck in my head for days.

  • George

    It’s obvious – Teen Wolf Meets Twilight

    • Lizabeth

      That’s been done…they called it New Moon.

      • Ambient Lite

        OH snap.

  • Sweet

    Well Taylor Swift already did a Twilight spoof, so I guess he could do Teen Wolf.

  • Thomas

    Hot wolfman vs. Benji the Hunted

  • Kelly

    Since Bon Jovi is there what about opposite band Jon Bovi.

  • anon

    the promos area terrible.

  • invaliduser

    opening monologue taylor lautner fielding questions from creepy twimoms. “Being a werewolf how many times a week to you have to shave that beautiful chest of yours?”
