With reports swirling that Chelsea Handler will be leaving her E! show, ‘Chelsea Lately,’ we’re wondering who will step in — and Kristen Wiig already has the funny thing down! HollywoodLife.com spoke with her at a screening of ‘Hateship Loveship’ and she told us what she thought of that idea.

Is Chelsea Handler being replaced by Kristen Wiig? The SNL alum chatted exclusively with HollywoodLife.com at the Cinema Society and Montblanc’s screening of Hateship Loveship, in which she plays a timid, introverted woman, Johanna — her first dramatic role.

Kristen Wiig Debuts New Look

Kristen’s shy, dramatic role wasn’t the only thing that she debuted at the New York premiere. She also revealed that she’s changed up her look with a blonde bob that looks great on her!

When we asked her about her makeup, she had a little trouble with pronunciation but she happily told she was wearing “NARS M-A-S-C-A-T-E lipstick. I can’t say it, so I have to spell it!” she joked.

Kristen Wiig — Next Late Night TV Host?

Saturday Night Live has produced many successful actors and comedians, and now it seems like ties between SNL and “late night” are continuing to run strong. Jimmy Fallon and Seth Myers have taking the late night plunge, and now that Chelsea Handler is leaving the scene, we decided to ask Kristen if she’d be taking her place. She gave a coy response stating:

“Oh my gosh, that’s the first I’m hearing this question. No, I don’t think I would be good at it. I’m going to leave that one to the professionals,” she laughed. But we don’t agree — she is a professional!

Of course, we’re not happy to see Chelsea go, but we are excited for who may emerge next. If not Kristen, who do you think is going to be the next female late night host, HollywoodLifers?

it would be great to see her that often on tv but she’s way too shy being herself in front of an audience! she’s said before that when she has to give one speech as herself, she hates it so i don’t think she’d go for being a talk show host!
