We all witnessed, and participated, in the amazing Facebook campaign that helped make Betty White the host of Saturday Night Live, and it made me wonder, which senior citizen celebrity should be next?

And the nominees are..

Jerry Stiller – Best known for his recurring roles on Seinfeld as Frank Costanza, and as Arthur Spooner on The King of Queens. This one is a personal favorite and he’d be phenomenal on SNL.

Rue McClanahan – The man-crazed Blanche Devereaux on The Golden Girls, McClanahan also starred as Vivian Cavender Harmon on Maude, and as Fran Crowley on Mama’s Family.

Abe Vigoda – You may not know his name, but you definitely know his face. Vigoda became a household name for his portrayal of Sal Tessio in The Godfather, and for his portrayal of Detective Sgt. Phil Fish on the TV series Barney Miller and on its spinoff show Fish. For the younger audience to this blog, he also made regular appearances as himself (usually in skits relating to his “advanced age”) on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Cloris Leachman An eight-time Emmy Award winner and recipient of an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in the 1971 film The Last Picture Show, Leachman has been seen everywhere from Mary Tyler Moore to Young Frankenstein to Malcolm in the Middle. She also became the oldest contestant (82yrs old) ever on Dancing With The Stars. She’s also on Twitter!

So who doeserves to be the next host of SNL?
