Now, Gothamist loves us some Mr. Darcy, but why is Colin Firth hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend? Anyone? His last movies came out late last year (The Girl with a Pearl Earring, Love Actually), and in his last big American movie, he had to settle for billing after Amanda Bynes. We are all for a Bridget Jones spoof, or some sort of acknowledgement that Firth keeps playing the cuckold (Bridget Jones, Love Actually, Shakespeare in Love, The English Patient), but his hosting is a puzzle, especially with Starsky and Hutch coming out this weekend - isn't it time for Owen Wilson to host?

Read Pride and Prejudice online. And Bridget Jones sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, will be released this fall.
