Saturday Night Live, "Michael Keaton/Carly Rae Jepsen" (Saturday, April 4, 11:30/10:30c, NBC)

He's been Batman, he's been Birdman, and tonight, Michael Keaton will play funnyman as the actor heads to NBC's Saturday Night Live. This stint marks Keaton's third time hosting the late night sketch comedy series and his first time back to Studio 8H in 23 years. While audiences are used to more dramatic roles from the Oscar-nominated actor, his comedic chops have been on display recently with a guest role in the Larry David HBO flick Clear History and a 2011 stint on 30 Rock. Expect Keaton to participate in a few self-deprecating sketches, even perhaps running around in his tighty-whities as an homage to the classic Birdman scene. The night's tunes will be provided by musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen, who exploded onto the scene in 2012 with the smash hit "Call Me Maybe." This time, the 29-year-old pop star will be promoting her new single "I Really Like You."
