Octavia Spencer is ready to make her Saturday Night Live hosting debut this weekend. But first, she has to get there.

The Hidden Figures Oscar nominee accidentally stumbles into Seth Meyers’ Late Night set on her way to Studio 8H. “Oh, um, wrong studio. SNL‘s right across the hall,” the former Weekend Update host says. “But, you know, I was head writer for a bunch of years so if you want to ask me…”

“Cool, dude,” Spencer interrupts. “Cool for you.”

The actress will host SNL this Saturday with musical guest Father John Misty. Scarlett Johansson will follow a week later opposite Lorde and enter the elite Five-Timers Club with her fifth time hosting the show.

Watch the promo for Spencer’s debut above.

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Michaels.
