Elizabeth Banks is set to host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 14, a week before the release of her film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2

The actress announced the news via Twitter, and musical guest Disclosure chimed in to say they were bringing along special guests Lorde and Sam Smith. 

While Banks’ character in The Hunger Games has been spoofed on SNL before, this is her first time hosting. She’s coming off a memorable year in which she starred in the Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp series, appeared in Magic Mike XXL, and made her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2. Banks spoke with EW last month about her directorial experience, shortly after news broke that she was in talks to direct a reboot film of Charlie’s Angels
