Filmdom’s Katniss Everdeen aka Jennifer Lawrence will host the first Saturday Night Live of 2013, to air Jan. 19.
Lawrence’s gig was announced during this weekend’s SNL Christmas episode, which opened with the Manhattan Children’s Chorus singing “Silent Night” in remembrance of those who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting… and also found Samuel L. Jackson blurting (most of) the F-word during a cameo in a “What’s Up With That?” sketch. (Kenan Thompson lightly scolded the film star, saying, “C’mon…. That costs money!”)
Joining Lawrence, a Studio 8H first-timer, as musical guest will be the American folk rock band The Lumineers.
Given the unpredictability of who will/will not do well as SNL host, what’s your gut saying about JLaw?
