Eli Manning to host SNL
Living in the shadow of his brother Peyton is nothing new for Eli Manning. But that’s usually on the football field, not TV.
“Saturday Night Live” announced last night that Eli will be hosting the May 5 edition of the show with musical guest Rihanna.
Peyton hosted the show back in March 2007 and gave one of the best performances of any athlete in recent memory. Then again, Eli has two Super Bowl rings to Peyton’s one, so maybe he’ll best him in the acting arena as well.
Eli also joins Patriots QB Tom Brady, who hosted the show in April 2005.
Take a look at the highlight of Peyton’s appearance, a brilliant send-up of the NFL’s United Way campaign:
