Why we're pumped to see Drake host 'SNL' -- Video

Why we're pumped to see Drake host 'SNL' -- Video
Two words, guys: Wheelchair Jimmy.

Fine, a few more words: This weekend, Saturday Night Live announced that 2014′s first show will be helmed entirely by Drake, playing the role of both host and musical guest. Pulling double duty on SNL is a big deal for any artist, but it’s especially notable for a rapper; only a handful in SNL history have done so before, including M.C. Hammer (in 1991), Queen Latifah (in 2004), and Ludacris (in 2006).

All three of these rappers have one thing in common: previous acting experience. Ludacris hosted after receiving good notice for his work in films like Crash and Hustle & Flow.

The not-so-super superheroes

For every Superman there's a crime-fighter who fails to set the world alight. Are you ready for Bibleman and Arm Fall Off Boy?

Aka Josh Carpenter

Last seen Possibly in the Bibleman Biblezine, or maybe the DVD Crushing The Conspiracies Of The Cheater. Both of these things exist.

Costume Nice purple armour consisting of the Waistbelt Of Truth, the Breastplate Of Righteousness, the Shield Of Faith, the Shoes Of Peace, the Helmet Of Salvation and the Sword Of The Spirit, which is basically an Argos lightsaber. He doesn't have any of these names written down anywhere, so it's impressive he remembers them all.

Sample line of dialogue (During an energetic swordfight): "Hebrews 10:5 says we should encourage each other!"

Why he'll never get a film Perhaps he will. And perhaps it'll be a hit. If The Passion of the Christ can make millions,

R-Patz & K-Stew are practically royalty! Do you think William & Kate should send them a last-minute invite?

But the biggest surprise came when Rob confessed to being a huge M.C. Hammer fan! Rob grew up watching his cartoon series, Hammerman,

"I only had like four channels on my TV when I was growing up," Pattinson explained. Ah, that explains it. That's the only way terrible U.S. programming stays on TV, if they toss it overseas. "They think we're stupid anyway, let's give them a reason!" Then again, that still doesn't explain how every single show on MTV has stayed on. He also chatted with Jimmy about the royal wedding confessing he...
