We hate to disappoint all you Robert Pattinson fans out there, but you’ll have to wait to see him hosting Saturday Night Live.

The Internet has been buzzing with rumors that the Twilight hottie would be the celebrity guest on an upcoming episode of the long-running sketch comedy show.

However, SNL‘s head honcho, Lorne Michaels, tells OK! that the show won’t be getting an infusion of vampire blood just yet.

“Not this season,” he said at Natural Resources Defense Council 11th annual Forces For Nature benefit in NYC. "We’re all locked in with the hosts for this year."


But is there hope that Rob will be palling around with cast members Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig in the future?

“Yeah, yeah, of course,” he said.

But Edward Cullen isn’t exactly known for his sense of humor — and RPatts is notoriously awkward off screen.

So would he make a good host? "Don’t know," admits Lorne. "You never know.”
