Sounds like a bingo for Lorne Michaels: NBC announced today that Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz will host SNL for the first time on Feb. 16. Though the Best Supporting Actor winner (and current nominee) has never appeared on NBC’s sketch series before, he has shown off his comedic timing on talk shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live! — as well as in his signature menacing-yet-hilarious roles in Quentin Tarantino’s Django and Inglourious Basterds.

Waltz will be joined by musical guest Alabama Shakes, also making their SNL debut. The rockers are up for three Grammys this year, including Best New Artist.

Saturday Night Live returns from a one-week hiatus Feb. 9 with a new episode hosted by Justin Bieber, who will also serve as musical guest.
