Live from New York, it's...Deadpool?

Deadpool Tim Miller Ryan Reynolds T.J. Miller Gina Carano Banner

Would you like to see Deadpool host Saturday Night Live? Not Ryan Reynolds, but the actor in character for the entire episode? A fan by the name of Andrew Stege has set up a petition at Change.org to have the Merc with the Mouth host the long-running late-night program, and so far it has received over 23,000 signatures.

The petition, which is made out to Reynolds, Lorne Michaels, NBC and SNL, reads: "How would this not be hilarious having Deadpool in sketches, breaking the 4th wall, and inserting some of his brand of humor (obviously toned down a bit for network television)!?!?! I have not watched a full episode of SNL in years because I just haven't been able to stomach an entire episode, but having Deadpool host, star, and be all over the episode would get the DVR set so I can watch it again and again!!! Not to mention, depending on the musical guest, how awesome would it be to have some Deadpool interpretive dancing while the musical guest was playing? There's unlimited possibilities!!!"

Although I think this is an awesome idea, and I have a feeling that Reynolds would totally be down with hosting as Deadpool, I doubt it will actually happen. But an internet campaign to get Betty White to host the show worked, so maybe there is a chance that the unkillable mercenary will appear as the guest host on an upcoming episode.
