Ghost in the Shell‘s Scarlett Johansson has been tapped to host Saturday Night Live.

NBC previously announced Hidden Figures Oscar nominee Octavia Spencer’s March 4 hosting gig earlier this month, but today brings word of her musical guest: Father John Misty.

Johansson will take over on March 11 with musical guest Lorde and become an official member of the Five-Timers Club (i.e. someone who’s hosted SNL five or more times). Ben Affleck, Candice Bergen, Bill Murray, and Justin Timberlake are some of the names, and then there’s Alec Baldwin, who hosted for 17 times.

Spencer, however, will host the late-night sketch comedy series for the very first time.

After Kristen Stewart’s F-bomb-dropping stint earlier this month, SNL has been on a break before its March 4 return.
