Kerry Washington will host Saturday Night Live on November 2, NBC announced today; Eminem will be the musical guest, marking his sixth trip to studio 8H. Washington was on our wish list for SNL hosts for this season, and given how much of a “moment” she seems to be having right now, an SNL gig seems like a (wonderful) foregone conclusion. But now comes the big question: Who will play Fitz in the Scandal spoof? And who will play Cyrus? Place your bets.
