Charlize Theron, Andy Samberg to host 'SNL'
An officer and a gentle-lady have signed on to helm the final two episodes of Saturday Night Live‘s 39th season.
On May 10, Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron will return to Studio 8H to host SNL for the second time. She’ll be joined by The Black Keys, making their third appearance on NBC’s long-running sketch show. Theron can next be seen co-starring opposite Seth MacFarlane in the Western spoof A Million Ways to Die in the West, which opens May 30; The Black Keys will release their eighth studio album, Turn Blue, on May 12.
For its season finale, SNL is bringing back an old friend: Andy Samberg, who joined the show’s cast in 2005 and left it in 2012. Though he’s made a few uncredited appearances on Saturday Night Live since then, this will be Samberg’s first time hosting. The comedian currently stars on Fox’s Golden Globe-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which will begin its second season this fall.
Samberg’s musical guest will be St. Vincent (real name: Annie Clark), the singer-songwriter most recently seen fronting a reunited Nirvana at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Fun fact: She, like Samberg, guest-starred on the second season of Portlandia — as did Samberg’s wife, indie chanteuse Joanna Newsom.
Saturday Night Live‘s next episode, featuring The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s Andrew Garfield and Coldplay, airs May 3.
