He single-handedly saved the Emmy telecast; he's said he'll do it if Steve Carell, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert help; he has that nice, dry English delivery and insider/outsider viewpoint; and he starred in his first feature film, "Ghost Town," this year, which did "meh" enough to be good for some jokes. If the accent's a problem, ABC can run subtitles.
