Washington [US], January 23 (FeedsIndia): With actor-director John Krasinski preparing to make his Studio 8H debut, the iconic late-night sketch series ‘Saturday Night Live’ has announced its first batch of hosts for the new year.
According to Fox News, the 41-year-old actor’s episode will air on Saturday, January 30.
Musical guest Machine Gun Kelly will join Krasinski.
“Aaaaaand cue the pinching myself. #SNL,” he tweeted on Friday (local time).
As reported by Fox News, on February 6, Dan Levy, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ creator-actor and Emmy-winner will make his debut accompanied by musical guest Phoebe Bridgers. “OMFG,” he tweeted.
Further, on February 13, Oscar-winner Regina King will host and Nathaniel Rateliff will be the musical guest.
In March 2020, Krasinski had to host the show, but the coronavirus pandemic delayed production of the late-night sketch series.
‘SNL’ returned for its 46th season on October 3, 2020, and Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issa Rae, Adele, John Mulaney, Dave Chappelle, Jason Bateman, Timothée Chalamet and Kristen Wiig were the hosts of the show.
Hours after comedian Jim Carrey announced on Twitter that he was retiring from his brief stint as Biden, cast member Alex Moffat was introduced as the new ‘SNL’ President Joe Biden on the last show of Saturday Night Live in 2020.
Emmy-winner Maya Rudolph will still play Vice President Kamala Harris. Moreover, Alec Baldwin will have to be replaced as former President Donald Trump.
“I don’t believe I’ve ever been this overjoyed to lose a job before!” Baldwin penned on Twitter. (FeedsIndia)
