Weekend Edition

This weekend we will have to deal with more than our regular cadre of zombies, bootleggers, and serial killers as Saturday night will feature Robert "Bobby" De Niro hosting "Saturday Night Live." De Niro has hosted "SNL" in 2002 and 2004 but do you remember any sketches he was in? He seems to have loosened up a little bit from what we can see in the above promos so we're hoping that the writers will fully take advantage of the opportunity as they did when the real NY Governor Patterson guested a few weeks ago. Some manufactured piece of garbage called Diddy-Dirty Money will be the musical guest, again proving that "SNL" has no clue how to pick a decent musical guest, we suggest hiring our friend Molly Bergen who was a regular music writer here at LAist and now does a smashing job at LA Weekly.
If you are as worked up into a froth over Tron: Legacy as we are then you'll want to watch the LiveStream of the London premiere this Sunday at 9:30am Pacific. The film's stars Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde, and director Joseph Kosinski will be interviewed and all precedings can be viewed HERE.
