Well, this is funny.
The success of DEADPOOL has people excited. Longtime fans, and new converts (like me) alike, just seem to want more of the Merc with The Mouth, and they want it NOW! There's now a petition going around that is demanding that Deadpool host Saturday Night Live.
And I mean Deadpool. Not Ryan Reynolds.
"We've all seen the trailers, the magazine covers, the viral videos, and the billboards by now, so what's left for Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) to do?
HOST SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE AS DEADPOOL!!!!
How would this not be hilarious having Deadpool in sketches, breaking the 4th wall, and inserting some of his brand of humor (obviously toned down a bit for network television)!?!?! I have not watched a full episode of SNL in years because I just haven't been able to stomach an entire episode, but having Deadpool host, star, and be all over the episode would get the DVR set so I can watch it again and again!!! Not to mention, depending on the musical guest, how awesome would it be to have some Deadpool interpretive dancing while the musical guest was playing? There's unlimited possibilities!!!"
That's the description included with the petition, which currently stands at 22,367 signatures. It's only 2,633 away from its target!
I must admit, it'd be pretty funny to see Deadpool wearing costumes OVER his costume, participating in sketches, mocking SNL for not being funny in years, demanding that Mike Myers and co. return, or telling Guns n Roses he'll give them each $3,000 not to reunite.
What'd be more likely is that Reynolds gets the gig, and dons the tights for a sketch.
