Should Bobby Moynihan's Nathan Lane impression lead an SNL skit?

So it's time for my first editorial of 2011! Happy New Year!

Here is Bobby Moynihan playing Nathan Lane:

Bobby has played Nathan Lane three times now:

02.07.2009 - No Bruce! Let Me Finish! The Best Of Celebrity Tirades

10.03.2009 - So You Committed A Crime & You Think You Can Dance

03.13.2010 - Hamlet Audition

True Nathan Lane isn't popular like Vanessa Bayer's Miley Cyrus, Jay Pharoah's Denzel Washington, or Abby Elliott's Angelina Jolie (Abby's Angelina is another impression that deserves to lead a skit), but there's something about Bobby's Lane impression that is hilarious and would make a great lead in a skit.

Besides, Amy Poehler's Dakota Fanning Show, Jim Breuer's Joe Pesci Show, Chris Kattan's Antonio Banderas' How Do You Say Ah Yes Show, and Andy Samberg's Mellow Show with Jack Johnson were all celebrity shows on SNL where the celebrity wasn't super popular. They just had a great impersonation and a great idea of how to make it funny.

And that's what I think Bobby has with Nathan Lane. He could host the first Broadway talk show... filled with drama and musical numbers during the talk show and as part of the talk show. LOL

It would also give SNL a chance to put other popular impressions out there (I want to see Abby's Kirsten Dunst, Jay's Eddie Murphy or Chris Tucker, Andy Samberg's Nicholas Cage (or Billy Bob Thornton), and Taran's Pee-Wee Herman) who can act as fish out of water in a strange, musical environment.

Hahahaha. There's my 10 cents.
