Justin Timberlake to host SNL for fifth time

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Not only is he gigging with Jay-Z at Soldier Field this summer, pop superstar Justin Timberlake is slated to host NBC's "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time on March 9. That makes him something akin to the Billy Crystal of latenight sketchfests. Only Timberlake is funnier. Sure, Crystal's a polished pro, but there's something about Timberlake's gameness for goofing (on himself, especially) and innate ability to sell jokes and premises that's somehow more endearing. That he's primarily a musician makes it all the more impressive. SNL guru Lorne Michaels must agree, or he wouldn't keep bringing sexy back.
