'Saturday Night Live': 5 Things We Want to See From Carly Rae Jepsen & Michael Keaton
Does Michael Keaton really, really, really, really, really, really like Carly Rae Jepsen?
Fans will find out Saturday night (April 4) when Keaton hosts Saturday Night Live and Jepsen makes her SNL debut as musical guest. (A summer hiatus meant Jepsen never made an appearance during her incredible 2012 summer "Call Me Maybe" run.)
While we can't wait to see what the talented Keaton tries out during his time on stage (will he do the monologue in his undies, a la Birdman, or has that moment passed?), we're also eager to see if Jepsen will find herself involved with anything beyond her musical performances. Here's hoping. If she does wind up in a sketch, we have some ideas...
1. Jepsen recently portrayed Cinderella on Broadway -- a perfect tie-in to spoof all the recent live-action Disney movies remakes that have been announced. (See: Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, etc.)
2. Um...there's got to be a great story behind Tom Hanks appearing in the music video for "I Really Like You." I bet the SNL writers have a few thoughts about how that came about. (Bonus: Tom Hanks cameo opportunity!)
3. It's been a hot minute since there's been a hilarious all-lady female number like "Dongs All Over the World" and "(Do It in My) Twin Bed." Could Jepsen perhaps get in on the next installment?
4. Jepsen is friendly with Justin Bieber (he did do his part to rocket her to stardom, after all). Maybe she can give "Bieber" (Kate McKinnon) some life tips after the Comedy Central Roast. Really anything with McKinnon's Bieber is acceptable.
5. In the latest promo, Micheal Keaton thinks "Call Me Maybe" really should be the new American anthem. Carly may disagree, but we sort of don't? (With apologies to "Party in the USA.")
