Saturday Night Live is currently between episodes after having John Mulaney and Daniel Craig host back-to-back episodes on February 29 and March 7 respectively. But the late night comedy sketch series will be taking an even longer break amidst all the coronavirus cancellations and delays in Hollywood.
John Krasinski was slated to host the March 28 episode of SNL in support of his new movie A Quiet Place II, which had already been delayed due to coronavirus concerns. But now that nearly every show and movie that was in production is shutting down for at least two weeks, probably longer, the show has been canceled, and SNL will be on hiatus until further notice.

A Quiet Place Part II hasn’t hit theaters yet, but director John Krasinski revealed that he already has ideas for a A Quiet Place 3 — if it were to happen.
The surprise critical and box office success of A Quiet Place in 2018 paved the way for Krasinski’s rising directorial career, and for a new horror franchise if Paramount had its way. Soon, A Quiet Place Part II was greenlit, with Krasinski back in the director’s chair and Emily Blunt reprising her role as the Abbott matriarch trying to keep her children alive in a post-apocalyptic world infested with sound-sensitive monsters. But could that premise sustain itself for a third A Quiet Place movie? Krasinski is prepared for that possibility.

A lot can change in a lifetime, so said the meme-able tagline for The Irishman this year. But it doesn’t even take a full life to observe a radical change in the trajectory of a life, as shown by the many artists who changed the course of their careers during the 2010s. It’s one thing to stage a comeback when you’re down and out in the public eye – after all, who doesn’t love an underdog story? – and another to successfully execute a 180-degree shift when things are going fairly smoothly.
This list pays tribute to those in the industry who pulled off pivots that caught us off-guard but did their job of redefining an already established star image. You might notice a running theme in this list: it’s disproportionately male, white and straight, unfortunately. This indicates that there is still room for the industry to improve in the 2020s and allow more opportunities for women, people of color and LGBTQ+ artists to spread their wings and avoid becoming pigeonholed into a single identity.

Now Krasinski is finally stepping back into the world of comedy, and he’ll have some welcome company.
Imaginary Friends is a new fantasy comedy set up at Paramount Pictures that will team up John Krasinski with Deadpool star and all-around smart ass, Ryan Reynolds. You can probably guess what the movie is about based on the title. Read More »
