    JGL!!! He was amazing the last time..can’t wait to see him again! I love him and he’s so talented.

  • Emma

    Three talented actors are hosting SNL, so I’m pretty happy!!

  • Jen

    Muse and Daniel Craig on SNL at the same time!!!! Awesome! And can’t wait to see Looper & Skyfall!

  • Brian

    Muse was working on Bond theme? Not Adele? ..just sayin’

  • to brian

    who said Muse was working on Bond theme? it’s just your assumption.
    Muse wrote tje official song for the Olymics. That’s the connection, not the Bond theme…

  • jiji

    Holy ****! I’m NOT American! Where can I see it when Daniel hosts & Muse?

  • ck

    Lots of talented, funny female actresses out there (hello..Jennifer Lawrence??) that need to get a shot as well.

  • Robin

    sounds interesting!! i approve.

  • SNL
  • Michelle

    Great line up! It made my day :-D

  • Brian

    @to brian:
    Yes, it’s just my guess! But there’re a lot of possibilities. Could be that Muse will play the Bond theme at SNL. They make its big debut.. I guess!

  • Maria

    JGL did a great job, his opening dance was cute!!
    Daniel Craig will pull off an awesome show because he was so funny on The Colbert Report!

  • Elle

    Daniel will host the SNL? Honestly, I didn’t see in coming! Well, to my surprise and delight, everything will be as right as possible. ;)

  • Lauren

    Muse and Daniel together on SNL. Dreams come true.. I still cannot believe though!

  • Tom

    Daniel is going to do a comedy again? If so, I’m so excited. Daniel and Catherine Tate blew my heart away!

  • Lana

    I think 007 will do a great job! plus JGL is pure awesome, so is Seth MacFarlane! Great choices! Too bad Andy and Kristin are gone, it’s almost like they’re trying to make up for when they had the full cast but kept wasting our time with hosts like Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus.

    Daniel covers Esquire magazine’s October 2012 issue!!
    (PICS) Daniel Craig | Bond Special
    http://www.esquire.co.uk/2012/08/daniel-craig-bond-special/
    Our October issue (out now) celebrates the best James Bond since Sean Connery.

    As Skyfall, Daniel Craig’s third outing as James Bond, hits the cinemas this Autumn, Esquire spent some downtime with the man who has rekindled our Bond obsession.

    And what better way to meet a British icon than over an afternoon pint in a London pub, where he gave us his thoughts on why the Bond series still has us coming back for more.

    “I think what’s always fantastic about the Bond stories is that there’s always a darkness involved,” he says, “but it’s a darkness with a sense of humour. A black humour. It’s about danger, but a good danger, because you’re in the hands of somebody who’s saying ‘F**k you’ to risk, ‘F**k you’ to dying.”

    Craig also revealed the difference between starring in a behemoth like Bond over his less high-profile roles.

    “Bond movies live or die on their popularity. They force you to care about what people think. And I’m involved [in the films] on a very deep level. I have it in my mind all the time…So there’s that kind of pressure, and that’s an enemy in any art form, acting especially.”

    And if you wondered how Sam Mendes came to be directing this latest instalment, our cover star had a big hand in that too.

    “It’s a very showbizzy story. I was at Hugh Jackman’s house in New York. It was a soiree – we were in a play together – and Sam [film and theatre director Sam Mendes] was there. I’d had a few too many drinks and I went, ‘How do you fancy directing a Bond?’ And he kind of looked at me, and he went, ‘Yeah!’ And it snowballed from there.”

    Hi, Guinness
    “Fio–did you email jj this info, thanks!!!”
    I have no connection with him. He just often deletes my post!

  • Fio

    As for SNL, I remember the article. Hugh suggested it already!
    Success pours for Huff after ‘A Steady Rain’

    (QUOTE)
    Daniel Craig, funny?
    Another surprise for Huff was how funny Craig was. “It’s a shame he doesn’t do more comedy,” Huff says. “He does great impersonations, including a really good Maggie Smith. He even does me. He wouldn’t do it when I was in the room, but apparently it was very funny. Hugh told Daniel he should host ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but Daniel said no, he was a serious actor. Then he laughed.”

  • Guinness

    Fio–THAT is what I am talking about–Esquire has a nice article with some sweeet captures!! (i wonder if the cheeky one is after he had a brew or before) the cheeky one is the one where he is gathering momentum to leap at ME, not you, from behind the round tables. wow. those eyes are telling me to “get ready cuz I am gonna pounce on you like ;;;;;;;;woah-cant teiype again. hot in here!!!!!”

    anyway, he is going to rock SNL and I am laughing already cuz it is gonna be THAT funny–so unexpected from his acting side…those that met him on set and “know him” already know of his funny wit. He says so in the article!! And being tipsy at a Huge Jackson soirre (swarrray. you brits sure know how to implement those big words!!!) and B.S. -ing about making a Bond movie with Mendes–? priceless. Dan knows the business and he is a natural and he is great to be married to and now that he made it big time again, he is good to even know!!!

    There is another article on the web that discussed him stating that after becoming a “star” or since making it big (wholly crap. i wish i could make hiim give, i mean big…hottt here in?) he needed to “get out what’s inside his head” and figure himself out. Was he happy the years prior to Rachel? He seems so different now. Was he pressured to look, feel, and act like someone who is NOT famous and wanted? He was in protecting his privacy mode, not enjoying life…hhmm? How unhappy was he? It is like he blossomed and can hold hands differently.

    cool. and i owe you 2 Guinnesses when you visit up here Dan. it’s only a matter of time to make it to the north country–especially in autumn. and bring Mendel–she needs a ride. (oui–you are welcome my friend–but how many rides is the question!!) JHC i gotto go do something serious.
    ciao —-OH WAIT—-did i tell you my loud, gorgeous sister from Hawaii isn’t going to UK? she had too much difficulty getting into UK system–or so she says??—-and now she is going to Beijing, china. what?? for a year. she is definitely LOCO in the Cabeza!!!! Yah, I know, imma disappointed you wouldn’t meet too…!!!!!!!!!

  • Mendel

    Hi Guinness

    “wholly shitballs. and how do i get tickets? are you screaming mendel?? i cannnt hear youuuu…….. ”

    CAN YOU HEAR ME NOWWWW??? ;)

    “mendel, just texted sister in NJ for tickets….i think we have to go and stand outside the studio that day. wow. so excited just to think i could go. u can come with if you get a boat ride over here!!!!”

    I am so TEMPTED!!!

    “interview at dartmouth today–check in later!! ”

    GOOD LUCK!!! I hope it’s for a writing job!!!!!!

    to Fio

    “I have no connection with him. He just often deletes my post!”

    How could he?! You are a mine of information! He should give you a job instead!

    Hi Guinness

    “he is gathering momentum to leap at ME, not you, from behind the round tables. wow. those eyes are telling me to “get ready cuz I am gonna pounce on you like ;;;;;;;;woah-cant teiype again. hot in here!!!!!””

    You should be writing ‘Fifty Shades of Dan’ :)

    “(wholly crap. i wish i could make hiim give, i mean big…hottt here in?)

    LOL!

    ” it’s only a matter of time to make it to the north country–especially in autumn. and bring Mendel–she needs a ride. ”

    OMG!!! *falls off chair, laughing*

    “OH WAIT—-did i tell you my loud, gorgeous sister from Hawaii isn’t going to UK? she had too much difficulty getting into UK system–or so she says??”

    I believe that…all I have to say is ‘London Met Students’…!

    “now she is going to Beijing, china. what?? ”

    Wow, that’s excellent! Shame about not meeting her though :(

    Seth MacFarlane was great on this past episode of SNL, and I’m really looking forward to seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt this Saturday! I really hope to see more from the new guys as well. I’ve already set up my Hopper to record the entire season to the two terabyte hard-drive, since I work late at Dish and can’t see them live. I’ve got a good feeling about JGL!
