Wow! That is nice that a swimmer gets to host SNL. I guess that NBC owes Phelps big time. I could care less if he will be funny. I hope that Horatio Sanz will not play his mother in a skit. That would be just wrong. Is anyone loving the Phelps's mainstream explosion. You know that Phelps will get his own Christmas special with Lil Wayne rapping(as awful as it sounds) to Christmas carols.

One of my favorite SNL shows was the one with Joe Montana and Walter Payton.

I sure hope Phelps finds some kind of personality, I think GHJ should do it.

Be a nice opportunity to give Lezak $1,000,000.

Maybe they can reprize the roll of "Mr. Peepers", he's certainly got the ears for it! :lmao:

Come to think of it, he looks a "little" like Sandler....

The SNL cast does a fairly good job of making non-actors and otherwise unfunny people come off pretty good. Word is the muslical guest is Lil Wayne, who Phelps talks about non spot as the rapper he plays before he gets in the pool - I am certain a skit could come of that.

Hopefully Phelps has better luck in the media and on TV than Mark Spitz did. I remember reading once that they tried to tap Spitz to play James Bond - but that he had 0 charisma as an actor.

Phelps would most likely do well to stay away from to heavy of acting and stick to occasional fun appearances on SNL, late night talk show, etc.

"sincere guy stu" from that show is one of my all-time favorite SNL skits.
