You saw her in Trainwreck, 21 Jump Street, and the laugh riot that was Room — it’s Oscar-winning actress, former pop star, and video game critic Brie Larson! Larson is hosting SNL on May 7 with musical guest Alicia Keys. Larson is navigating the tricky post-Oscar career transition, as her upcoming schedule’s a blend of old commitments (Kong: Skull Island) and new, more prestige-focused projects. None of them are premiering soon, however, so Larson is really only there to promote herself. Still, we have a few requests: Can Larson reunite with Shailene Woodley and do a skit about bone broth? And can she also bring up Jacob Tremblay, or does SNL air after his bedtime?
