Yesterday we found out that Jeff Bridges would be hosting Saturday Night Live in December, but today NBC announced some talent who will be hosting the show a little earlier with back-to-back shows in November. Today the network announced Scarlett Johansson will host the sketch comedy series for her third time with musical guest Arcade Fire on November 13th. Then the following weekend, on November 20th, Anne Hathaway returns to host for her second time with musical guest Florence and the Machine (hell yes!). The sheer beauty from both of these hosts is enough to tune in, but with stellar musical guests, that makes these episodes of SNL a must-see.
Funnily enough, the press release tried to point out that Johnasson was “currently filming The Avengers with Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson,” but unless they know something we don’t, that’s likely completely false. Evans is currently shooting Captain America: The First Avenger (check out the first official photo here) in Europe, and The Avengers isn’t slated to begin shooting until next year. But that misinformation doesn’t make me any less excited for these future episodes of Saturday Night Live. Agreed?
