Saturday Night Live has revealed another season 44 host for next month. On Twitter today, the show announced that Idris Elba, who currently sits on People’s Sexiest Man Alive throne, will make his SNL hosting debut on March 9, where he’ll be joined by musical guest Khalid (it will also make Khalid’s debut SNL performance). Elba will be at SNL to promote his starring role in the upcoming Netflix comedy series Turn Up Charlie, which debuts on the streaming network Friday, March 15.
In the meantime, Saturday Night Live returns with brand-new episodes on March 2, when former SNL writer and current Documentary Now! co-creator and star John Mulaney returns to host for the second time alongside musical guest Thomas Rhett. In case you forgot, Mulaney last hosted the show back in April 2018 and gifted us all with that “Diner Lobster” sketch that was, of course, “instantly iconic.”
