NBC has announced the next three hosts of Saturday Night Live for the month of December, and they’re mighty promising. James Franco will kick things off on December 6th with his third appearance as host, accompanied by musical guest Nicki Minaj. Franco is well-versed in SNL lore having directed the incredibly fascinating documentary Saturday Night, which provided a first-ever behind-the-scenes look at the weeklong process of making an episode. The actor will of course be promoting his upcoming comedy The Interview in which he stars opposite Seth Rogen, so a Rogen cameo on the episode seems likely. More after the jump.
