Seth Meyers

Just GUESS Who's Playing

Paul Ryan on 'SNL'

Seth Myers
tells TMZ he's already taken himself OUT of the running to play Paul Ryan on the upcoming season of "Saturday Night Live" ... insisting the identity of new Paul imposter is a closely guarded secret.

Myers -- who's the head writer on the show -- was walking his bike in NYC this week ... did drop one obvious nugget, we're DEFINITELY getting a Mitt Romney sketch on the season premiere.

So who will take on Mitt's running mate? Probably not Fred Armisen (he already plays Barack Obama) ... or Jason Sudeikis (plays Mitt Romney) ... which leaves ...

1) Bill Hader
2) Taran Killam
3) Bobby Moynihan
4) Jay Pharoah (Um...)
5) Kenan Thompson (Yeah...)
6) Random new guy (crap shoot)

Choose wisely Seth.

Bill Hader kinda looks like Paul Ryan. Plus he's great at impressions. I think Bill Hader would be the best choice.

The real question should be "Who's playing Barack Obama?" But SNL can't find one thing funny about the POTUS, so never mind.

Thay are going to use Bill because he's tall, thin, and creepy at the same time. Something that SNL WRITERS are looking to portray Paul Ryan. taran won't fit but theft may us him. It would be a bad choice.

Does anyone really watch this crap anymore. It stopped being funny at least ten years ago.

SO much material to slam Obama and Biden on, and you STILL go after Romney? Man, you guys are weak.

Keenan would probably be the funniest. Having a fat black guy playing a conservative, fit white guy would be the most interesting.

Seriously, park a round between SNLs eyes and put it out of its own misery. These players (I say players loosely) can't hold a candle to past cast members. It's painful to watch these guest hosts come on stage and gloat to how happy they are to be hosting SNL and the next 35 minutes is just dreadful to watch (after 35 minutes, the really bad sketches air). Please someone, pronounce time of death and bury this old filly.
