The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons will host Saturday Night Live on March 1, with Beck as musical guest, NBC announced this afternoon. This is Parsons’s first time hosting, and Beck’s seventh time as musical guest, not including the time he played alongside Mick Jagger on the 2012 season finale. Beck’s first time on SNL was back in 1997 (host: Kevin Spacey), which is before Parsons even had an IMDb credit. And now look at them! Parsons has three Emmys; Beck has three Grammys; SNL brings people together, etc.
