Lindsay Lohan, a former inmate of the Los Angeles County jail system multiple times now, will host the next "Saturday Night Live" on March 3, the show announced on the air on Saturday. She has no movie or TV projects to promote, and the Playboy spread is now a couple of months old. Guess it's just a freebie. From The Hollywood Reporter:
This will be Lohan's first time back on the sketch comedy show since 2006, but the actress hosted a total of three times in the mid-2000s. At the time, Tina Fey was head writer for SNL, and she seemed to support Lohan after co-starring with her in 2004's "Mean Girls."
Lohan has maintained a good relationship with the show throughout her career, and has also publicly referred to show executive producer Lorne Michaels as a mentor and father figure. Yet, nearly a year ago, Lohan sent Michaels a letter stating she was upset by the show repeatedly taking digs at her expense. That Saturday night's show was hosted by Miley Cyrus. Cyrus, who herself had been in the tabloids lately for wearing a revealing outfit and smoking salvia, poked fun at Lohan during a song.
Lohan is due in court soon to report to Judge Stephanie Sautner on the progress of her community service, counseling and other court-mandated actions.
