Movie star. Broadway Babe. Now TV host?!
Now that his wizarding days are over, Dan Rad is ready to tackle his next big challenge as host of Saturday Night Live.
It will be the kind of stuff I like, that kind of guerrilla style of getting stuff done when you just have to get it done. Nothing else matters. You have to do it. You have to achieve. By the end of the week, you're going to be putting on an hour-and-a-half music-and-comedy show from scratch.
As for any ideas Dan Rad might have…he has a few but he thinks they're "crap." He is also excited to work with favorite cast members, such as Seth Meyers and Bill Hader.x
