Fans want to have Deadpool host Saturday Night Live. So much so, there’s a petition floating around online that’s amassed over 60,000 signatures to get the insanely popular character to host a future episode.
No…this isn’t an attempt to get Ryan Reynolds to host, but Ryan Reynolds, in character, as Deadpool. There’s been no official word from either party yet, but Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to fan the flames of that possibility. Reynolds shared a tweet in which he almost verbatim parodies Kanye West’s epic SNL meltdown that almost resulted in his leaving the show early. West went on to say he was 50% more influential than the Apostle Paul, Picasso, and Stanley Kubrick.
Now that you’ve heard the original, check out Deadpool’s parody, and pray that someone at SNL (We’re looking at you Lorne), at least tries to make this hosting gig happen.
Actually DEADPOOL was going to host back in the 90s, but then this happened. Thank god Tom Hanks was available.https://t.co/7pyPEMysdY
