Lindsay Lohan to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ March 3
Lindsay Lohan’s comeback trail is leading her to “Saturday Night Live.”
NBC said the troubled actress, whose career in recent years has been upstaged by legal and personal problems, will serve as guest host of “SNL” on March 3, the Associated Press reports. The network said Sunday that the musical guest that night will be Jack White.
It will be Miss Lohan’s fourth turn as host of the late-night comedy show. She hosted in 2004, 2005 and 2006, before her career faltered. In recent years, she has mostly been in the public eye in connection with her multiple arrests and episodes of substance abuse. In December, she appeared in Playboy magazine in a mostly nude pictorial.
‘Colbert Report’ to resume production on original shows
After the show abruptly went dark last week, “The Colbert Report” was to resume production on Monday, a representative from the show confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter.
Tapings on Wednesday and Thursday were canceled at the last minute, with ticket holders invited to reapply for a future taping. Some fans were already lining up at the show’s Manhattan studio — and some were even in their seats — when Comedy Central sent an email Wednesday alerting ticket holders to the cancellation.
Stephen Colbert did not release an official reason for the sudden cancellation of tapings, but reports surfaced that said it was due to his 91-year-old mother’s ailing health. Comedy Central would only say that the tapings were canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
On Friday, Mr. Colbert tweeted to his fans: “My family and I would like to thank everyone who has offered their thoughts and prayers. We are grateful and touched by your concern.”
This week’s guests include Robert Kagan, author of “The World America Made” on Tuesday and Nancy Pelosi, minority leader of the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
