‘SNL’ Preview: Paul Rudd Has a Fangirl Freakout Over One Direction

Subscribe to Cat Country 102.9 on

Following a less-than-stellar outing with ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ star Josh Hutcherson and a holiday break, ‘SNL‘ will return this weekend with its first of three major December installments. This time out, the sketch comedy show will return ‘Anchorman‘ star Paul Rudd to the stage for his third hosting duty and his first alongside UK sensation One Direction.

Incorporating Vanessa Bayer into the promos for the first time (that we can remember), our first look at this weekend’s ‘SNL’ sees Rudd nervous about his third time proving a charm, and freaking out about One Direction’s appearance on the series. With the “Weekend Update” desk so ominously lurking in the background, we have to wonder, will Brian Fantana come out to play this Saturday?

Rudd’s third ‘SNL’ host appearance kicks off an impressive lineup for December, to be followed next week by repeat host John Goodman and Kings of Leon and capped off on December 21 with alumni Jimmy Fallon and frequent host Justin Timberlake. Given how much we’ve seen of Will Ferrell‘s Ron Burgundy of late, we wouldn’t rule out any appearances this weekend, either.

Take a look at Paul Rudd’s third ‘SNL’ hosting gig above, and give us your predictions for this weekend’s installment in the comments!
