Forest Whitaker to Host SNL



We're looking forward to the "all-but-certain "Crying Game" skit (And, of course, the all but certain "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" football referencing of Charles Jefferson). According to the Press Release:

"On February 10, SNL welcomes freshly minted Oscar nominee Forest Whitaker for his SNL debut.

One of the most accomplished actors/directors/producers working today, Whitaker is having a banner year. For his work as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in 'The Last King of Scotland,' he has received practically every critic's award; a Golden Globe and SAG award as Best Actor and has been nominated for an Oscar for the role.

Whitaker is a veteran of numerous films since his debut at 21 in 'Fast Times At Ridgemont High,' Whitaker has appeared in such memorable and diverse studio and indie movies as 'Panic Room,' Clint Eastwood's 'Bird' 'The Crying Game' 'Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai,' "

"... Also making his first appearance on SNL is Grammy Award winner Keith Urban. In what has been a relatively short period of time Urban has amassed seven No. 1 singles and 12 Top 5's. His latest album, 'Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing,' debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart, giving him his second consecutive No.1 album. The first single from the album "Once In A Lifetime," set a record as the highest debuting song in the history of the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart and his latest, 'Stupid Boy,' recently entered the Top 10."
