The New York Giants’ quarterback will be the host for Saturday Night Live on May 5.

Eli won’t be the first Manning to host the show. His brother, Peyton, did it in 2007 and had a very funny “United Way” videotape in which he coached youngsters, hit them with passes in the back and stomach and even banished one to a portable bathroom for 20 minutes.

Eli Manning has no stage experience, noting he was never even in a school play.

“It’s something that’s been offered a few times and I’ve turned it down. But it seemed like the right time. I felt ready to do it and I’m excited about that opportunity,” he said Monday.

“I’m a little nervous about it, but excited also. It should be a lot of fun. It will take some work, but it should be something I’ll always remember.”
