Mark Ruffalo explains his decision not to host Saturday Night Live

Mark Ruffalo, a renowned A-list actor known for his roles in Marvel films, including the Hulk in The Avengers, recently declined an offer to host Saturday Night Live. In an interview with Mark Maron’s WTF podcast, Ruffalo revealed that his dyslexia posed a challenge, causing him to lose his place when reading scripts. He expressed concern about disappointing Lorne Michaels, the creator-producer, and the rest of the crew. Ruffalo’s quote reflects his anxiety about taking on the responsibility:

“I’ll never be asked back. I don’t think Lorne Michaels likes it when you say no. It just scared the living s\*\*\* out of [me]. I’m dyslexic. You don’t lie on this show. I’ll lose where I’m at on the page. When I hear about how that show works, changing things at the last second, and I want to be good at it. I’ve been watching that my whole life and like, I don’t want to be the guy, the host who sucks. I owe Lorne Michaels more than that.”

How Poor Things Shows that Mark Ruffalo Would Make a Great SNL Host

Despite Ruffalo’s decision, it is regrettable that he will not host SNL, especially considering his exceptional performance in the critically acclaimed film Poor Things. Ruffalo portrays Duncan Wedderburn, who engages in a passionate relationship with Bella Baxter. He fully embraces the quirky, awkward, and obnoxious nature of his character, capturing audiences with his superb acting skills.

In Poor Things, Ruffalo also displays his mastery of comedic timing, accentuated by Yorgos Lanthimos’ exceptional directing. Through well-timed pauses and interruptions, Ruffalo adds to the film’s hilarity, particularly in scenes alongside Emma Stone as Bella. His comedic timing and physical acting would undoubtedly make him an outstanding host for Saturday Night Live, making his refusal all the more disappointing.

This year, Ruffalo is nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars, alongside esteemed actors such as Robert Downey Jr., Sterling K. Brown, Ryan Gosling, and Robert De Niro.

While Mark Ruffalo may never have the opportunity to host Saturday Night Live, his success in Poor Things may lead him to receive a well-deserved Oscar. In a highly competitive category, Ruffalo’s physicalized performance in Poor Things sets him apart, making him a strong contender.
