Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is picking up a late-night television job.
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.''

There are always a lot of prospects on hand at the draft, to do live interviews and pose with the commissioner wearing a baseball cap with a log of the team that drafted them — unless it’s Eli Manning, but that’s another story.
The 2012 NFL Schedule has been released, as all 32 teams now know who they are playing and when each game will take place. It is always interesting to see which teams dominate the primetime slate, as well as when divisional foes first meet each other for bragging rights throughout the regular season.
