Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight on "The Office", has been tapped to host "Saturday Night Live" on Feb. 24. They'd better deliver a great parody of the show and perhaps a reprise of Dwight's Sith Lord. The creepy undertaker in training he played on "Six Feet Under" might be a bit too obscure to reference on SNL but could definitely be amusing. Actually, why don't they just give the SNL cast a night off and air an hour-long episode of "The Office"?
Jessica Simpson and John Mayer were not shy at the Sony/BMG Grammy after party. I’m not really sure what to make of these pictures. They both look a little drugged. What do they talk about? He seems very chatty but I’m sure we all remember the awkward dinners Jessica had with husband Nick Lachey on “Newlyweds” when the conversation mostly consisted of Jessica’s disgust over what was on her plate. John’s probably into that. He lets her get confused about why sausage is white and why anyone would want to attend an Oktoberfest celebration and then just tells her to take her shirt off and doesn’t let her answer calls from Daddy Simpson.
Record executive Clive Davis hosted a pre-Grammy party in Beverly Hills on Saturday. Whitney Houston made an appearance (with Al Gore?) and, once again, looked a thousand times better than she ever did while married to Bobby Brown. Here a few highlights from the party’s performances.
