His hosting gig on “SNL” is another notch on his growing resume: He hosted last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, has appeared on ABC’s “Modern Family” and starred in the romantic comedy “Think Like a Man.”
He’s also the star of the BET parody series “Real Husbands of Hollywood” (Tuesday, 10 p.m. EST) with Robin Thicke and Nick Cannon. The Philadelphia-born Hart said he’s “anxious,” but not worried, about hosting “SNL.”
“You can’t get nervous about what you love to do. This is what I love to do, so the opportunity to do it on this stage is ridiculous,” he said.
Duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, known for their hit “Thrift Shop,” will perform Saturday night. Hart says he’s a fan of group — sort of.
“I am a fan now ’cause I found out who they were when I realized they were going to be on the show with me. So because of the Internet and the Google search, I Googled them,” he said, as others laughed. “I educated myself — almost another genius move of mine — to think to Google somebody that I didn’t know.”
So is Hart enjoying the group’s massive, multiplatinum anthem about buying used clothes?
“I didn’t hear that. Didn’t hear that one. Don’t know what that one is,” he said. “But I heard some other stuff. Don’t really know the titles. But I know (Macklemore’s) white — from Google.”
