Taylor Lautner on SNL!!!!!

Taylor Lautner made an appearance in Taylor Swift's SNL monologue in early November...but now he'll be hosting SNL himself! This weekend it was announced that Lautner will host Saturday Night Live on December 12, 2009.

Lautner hosting SNL will fulfill the iconic sketch comedy show's recent attempts to both reach an engaged younger audience and cash in on the Twilight craze. Lautner, who plays Jacob Black in The Twilight Saga, ranks statistically as a favorite among teen Twilight fans and has magnetized major mainstream attention with the 30 pounds of muscle he put on for New Moon, the second installment in the Twilight film series. With New Moon's box office numbers weighing in Sunday at $230 million after its second weekend in theaters, the North American audience is likely to flock to Lautner as a pretty recognizable SNL host.
