Kerry Washington Will Host ‘SNL’ on November 2

By

Scandal star Kerry Washington will host Saturday Night Live on November 2, NBC announced today. It will be her first time hosting the show, and she’ll be joined by musical guest Eminem, who will be making his sixth appearance. Though primarily a dramatic actress, Washington has some experience in comedy, including co-starring with Chris Rock in 2007’s I Think I Love My Wife. She also, intriguingly, appeared on PBS’s educational sketch series Standard Deviants in the 90s, which has been described as Sesame Street meets Saturday Night Live. Hopefully her sketch comedy skills are still sharp.
