Realistic, semi-realistic and entirely unrealistic candidates to reinvigorate 'SNL'
The “Pitch Perfect” star is one of the biggest reaches in this gallery. On the other hand, her social media persona suggests someone who would get an incredible kick out of being silly in front of a camera on live television. She’s currently in pre-production on several films, so the idea of her as a full-time repertory player is out of the question. But the skill required to do the cup routine to “When I’m Gone” in one take suggests a talent that exists outside the editing bay. She’s not so big a star that a role on “SNL” is out of the question, but the window on that status is closing quickly. “SNL” should float the idea now before it’s too late.
Likelihood of full-time status: 0%
Likelihood of part-time status: 15%
