Lindsay Lohan

Doing 'SNL' Was My Idea

2/19/2012 12:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan was DYING to do "Saturday Night Live" again -- and kickstart her comeback -- so she reached out to Lorne Michaels herself to book the hosting gig ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she has always felt the "SNL" executive producer has been very fatherly towards her throughout the years. We're told LiLo has always enjoyed doing the show, but was waiting for the right time to do it again. 

So now that her community service is coming to an end, our sources say Lindsay called up Lorne and asked him to consider her for the show again. We're told they had multiple conversations and eventually settled on a date ... March 3.

According to our sources, Lindsay feels doing "SNL" again will remind people she's an actress ... not a defendant.

I can't wait to watch this! can she keep it together for a hour and half, does she even remember how to act, does she have enough brain cells to remember her lines... Oh the questions are endless.

has anyone else ever seen a Kick start that lasted 6 years?
Its not like she was a part of hollywood to begin with..
Disney roles are not considered great acting..
she has nothing to promote or plug..
and I am sure she will be paid peanuts compared to real stars

Don't do it, Lorne. There are waaaaaay too many more talented and dedicated entertainers out there who are more deserving.

------------------------------
yes but "E True hollywood stories" will remind people she is a repeat offender and a professional criminal..
Is she going to do a skit..where she is doing Blow off vikrams tiny turban while lighting her crack pipe?..
or a skit where she has 15 people living in a hotel room because she blew her money?
SNL cast better put "LOJACK" on all their stuff because that bitch steals

Lawsuit Lohan is irrelevant to the TV and Film industry. I do not understand why SNL would welcome this washed-up loser in their house.

She adds nothing and booking her shows that SNL is desperate.

I was just getting used to Jeremy Lin's success called "Linsanity" not a former teen-queen, boozer, coke-sniffing, shoplifting, lawsuit filing train-wreck

I hope she looks "normal" when she does SNL - meaning get rid of the MM look. It sucks.
