Jason Sudeikis wants Robert Pattinson to host SNL; but Pattinson doesn’t think he’s funny

hollywoodnews.com: “We got you, buddy. You’ll be fine. Hold on to me tightly. We’ll take you through the forest of SNL,” said 2011 MTV Movie Awards host Jason Sudeikis to MTV News. His words of encouragement were directed toward Robert Pattinson, one of the most sought-after no-go hosts of Sudeikis’ regular gig, Saturday Night Live.
“I think anybody should host [‘SNL’] if it’s something they want to do. Just give it a shot!” Sudeikis told MTV News. “We’re certainly a safe place, a safe haven.”
But Pattinson isn’t convinced he’s funny, as he revealed to a different SNL alum, Jimmy Fallon on the well-loved March 2010 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. After making a cameo on Fallon’s popular “Robert is Bothered” sketch in which the comedian plays a rather “Cullenized” version of the Brit, Pattinson commented, “Seeing that made me realize why I’m not a comedian.”
