Anna Faris hosts tonight's 'Saturday Night Live': Talk about it here!


Image Credit: NBC

Okay, so the disappointing What’s Your Number? didn’t exactly add up to box office gold for Anna Faris. That doesn’t mean we still can’t count on the actress for a good laugh. (Hey, we didn’t declare her as one of the 25 Funniest Actresses in Hollywood for no good reason.)

That’s why were not letting her turn in that particular romantic comedy get in the way of our excitement about Faris hosting tonight’s Saturday Night Live. Because Faris, when given the right material, is a fun, fearless, and refreshing comedic gem. Sound like a certain other actress who recently killed it as SNL host? While the SNL writers didn’t particularly give last week’s host Ben Stiller much to work with, here’s hoping they up the ante once more for Faris. But will they play to her usual strength of playing a dopey but lovable ditz (i.e. The House Bunny, Scary Movie, Smiley Face) or will they give her material more range? (Something she most definitely has.)

If you’re tuning in for tonight’s episode, which will also feature rapper Drake (pictured with Faris and SNL all-star Jason Sudeikis) making his debut as a Saturday Night Live musical guest, be sure to stop by here and post your thoughts on the show as it’s happening. Are you hoping to see Faris play the straight woman or go for pratfalls? And speaking of Pratts, are you also sort of hoping her equally hilarious hubby Chris will swing by for a cameo, too? Share in the comments section below and remember to check back in later tonight to give your opinion on the show. A full recap will be up on Sunday morning.

    Maybe she’s just a very good actress, but she comes across as so dumb. There’s nothing going on behind those eyes.

    • Shannon

      Nah, it’s part of her naivete, bubbly, doe-eyed girl caught in the headlights schtick. I don’t think she’s dumb, just silly and strange.

      • lisa g.

        ITA w/ Shannon!

      • Squishmar

        You usually have to be pretty smart to play dumb well.

    • Javadude54

      She likes to be goofy… but she’s a pretty smart gal.

      • The Truth

        you mean like Goldie Hawn who she is clearly ripping off!

    • Gloria Mundy

      she is doing the whole Goldie Hawn thing, goldie was very smart but a whole career playing the dumb blonde, in fact Farris is remaking Goldie’s “Private Benjamin”.

      • Shannon

        Yeah, she reminds me a little bit of Goldie.
        And I had no idea about Private Benjamin. That’s pretty cool.

      • jeez

        Goldie did it better, Goldie was a sweet dumb blonde, Anna just seems dumb and skeezy!

      • pastafarian

        Why is Carol Channing hosting SNL tonight?

      • Z

        And Goldie stole it from Carole Lombard…

      • Josh

        It’s like she decided to play her character from Lost in Translation all the time.

    • Necro

      The show sucks. The writers suck. Doesn’t matter who’s hosting. Axe the show already!

      • Squishmar

        Why? Some people enjoy it still. If you don’t, how about YOU don’t watch it? Why must it be “axed”? And just what would NBC put on instead at 11:30 p.m. Saturday night?

  • aps

    there better be a degrassi sketch.

    • Trixie

      Hah that would be great, but I feel like he has disavowed his Degrassi past.

      • Shannon

        Yeah, you’re probably right, but you never know… Maybe there will at least be a Jimmy Brooks reference.

    • Amber

      If they could bring back Wheelchair Jimmy…I would watch SNL forever

    • jeez

      So Bad worst of the season, not one laugh!

  • K

    She needs to become friendly with Kristen Wiig and get in the next Bridesmaids or something.

  • LOL

    Worried about tonight’s show. Four shows in 4 weeks. I’m guessing that they’re running on fumes now.

    • ltchy

      lt IS just about time for a repeat. l was SURE that that was what we were getting tonight until l came across this article!

      • Squishmar

        That’s what they normally do.. three weeks one week off. This is unusual.

  • jmcg

    I’m sorry, but when was she funny? Have I missed something? And there’s something about that collagen she puts in her lips, its very distracting.

    • Shannon

      Well, she was the only mildly funny thing in the Scary Movie continuum. But, she was pretty funny in the stooopid Hot Chick and the not-that-awful House Bunny.

  • kate middleton

    PLEASE let Chris Pratt show up. I’d prefer him to host the whole thing actually.

    • Shannon

      She’s actually hosted before, so maybe she’ll bring him around this time.

  • TJ. Church

    This week’s show will suck… But most will love it the way they (wrongly) hated last week’s.

  • tomrd16

    OMG she looks like Courtney Love.

    • Tank Girl

      You wouldn’t say that if you’ve seen Courtney Love lately.

      • tomrd16

        Lol, I guess not. I really like her music, though.

    • rocker

      Id rather have Courtney playing tonight than this crappy act, where do they get these bozos?

      Bring back some real music SNL

  • jasmine

    i really really really hope that chris pratt makes a cameo! that will make my weekend!

  • Shannon

    You know what oddball, cutesy poo girl they should get to host? Mrs. Sasha Baron Cohen, Isla Fischer. They definitely need Sasha to host some time very soon, though. How the hell has he never hosted before??

  • Kevin

    I see boobies through that shirt. I like Anna Faris boobies.

  • james

    why didn’t she host before the movie came out? What’s your number is actually a fun movie.

  • Player87

    Why does Anna Faris not look as good as she used to? Did she have plastic surgery again? Is it just age? Something weird.

  • Jenny

    She’s looks so strange…. her nose is off.

    • JB

      I thought her lips looked odd

      • Jenny

        All of it’s weird. I think some of it is the make up’s fault. It looks really thick.

  • Chris

    This… is… not… good!

    • exSNLfan

      Seth Myers’ news segment has failed every episode this season, OUCH …AND NOW they start rapping? wtf?, it is horrible, just horrible…. switching channel, can not take this crap.

      back to college football…. wanted to laugh, wanted to like it, but SNL sucks. oh well

      • Steven Ball

        The fake news segment is the worst part of SNL- except for Stefan
