Morning Links: Mitt Romney Considers ‘SNL’ Stint, Watch Coachella On YouTube

● Rumor has it that Lorne Michaels (perhaps not in the best of faith) has offered Mitt Romney a guest spot on Saturday Night Live, and the Times‘ Maureen Dowd reports that he is actually considering it. As the show’s Jim Downey suggests, he was funny that one time, "on Letterman, giving the Top Ten list." [NYT]

● Paul McCartney enrolled an unlikely duo, Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp, for his "My Valentine" video. [PopCultureBrain]

● Appeasing the powers that be, Kanye West has changed the name of "Theraflu" to "Way To Cold." [RS]

● Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg brought a holographic 2Pac with them to perform at Coachella. Nate Dogg, apparently, had better things to do that day. [OnSmash]

● Teller of Penn & Teller fame is suing a Dutch performer for performing his copyrighted magic tricks on YouTube. The case could be landmark for magicians, according to Hollywood Reporter, as it would "help determine the level of protection that magicians have over their magic tricks." [THR]

● Thanks to YouTube, you can watch all of Coachella’s weekend one from the comfort of your own home. Well, almost all of it. [Stereogum/Stereogum/Rap-Up]

● All is not well with the still family-run Archie Comics empire. [NYT]
