Back in the ’80s, Saturday Night Live was the show all the cool kids stayed up to watch. If your parents let you stay up that late, you were a badass in elementary school. I liked those old skits with Eddie Murphy and his castmates, but the modern show is a bit boring to me. But if this petition comes to fruition, I would definitely watch the show.
Yes, a petition has been put up at Change.org to try and get the producers of SNL to sign up Deadpool to host. To be clear, they don’t want Ryan Reynolds to host, they want Deadpool. In other words, Reynolds in costume with his perfect Merc with a Mouth wit.
I’m not sure how they could tone it down with the language Deadpool is known for, but this is about the only way you would get me to tune into SNL short of bringing back Murphy to meet Mr. Landlord for a reunion of Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood. The Deadpool petition has over 50,000 signatures so far.
