EXCLUSIVE: I’m hearing that The Artist star Jean Dujardin will make a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live in an hour or so. From what I’m told, the producers wanted him, and it was a dream of his to do the show. So he flew in Friday from Paris for rehearsals, and flies right out in the morning to London for the BAFTAs. This is what you go through when you are a frontrunner for Best Actor and the voting closes on February 21. I understand that he does a bit of dancing in his segment on the show in an Artist-flavored edition of SNL‘s recurring Les Jeunes de Paris dancing sketches starring Taran Killam.
Live From NY, It's Jean Dujardin On 'SNL!'
