Giants Super Bowl QB Eli Manning to Host “Saturday Night Live”

Five years after big brother Peyton’s memorable stint as host of Saturday Night Live, Eli Manning will take his turn according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.

The Giants’ quarterback and two-time Super Bowl MVP will host SNL on May 5, NBC announced on Saturday night. The musical guest will be Rihanna.

Though Peyton has enjoyed better comedic success over the years, Eli has dabbled as well. He joined his brothers and parents in an excellent ESPN commercial, did ads for Double Stuffed Oreos and was part of the (thankfully) short-lived “Football Cops” campaign for DirecTV.
