Robert Pattinson: No ‘SNL’…Yet

By: Betsy Waldman / April 6, 2009

Robert Pattinson fans will have to wait a little longer to see the British hunk taking over hosting duties on Saturday Night Live.

One loyal RPattz follower took it upon herself to create an online petition in an attempt to get their man the honorable gig. Identified as “The_mad_chatter,” the petition urges NBC and SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels to get the actor on the show, and fast! As of now, over 5,000 fans have signed the statement.

However, things aren’t just that simple. Michael spoke to Ok! about RPattz, saying “Not this season. We’re all locked in with the hosts for this year.” Don’t get out the tissues just yet, Twilighters! When asked if he would be considered as a host next year, he responded, “Yeah, yeah, of course.”

With New Moon hitting theatres at the end of the year, it’s not like Rob is going anywhere anytime soon. He’ll only get better with age!
