Saoirse Ronan to host SNL next month with musical guest U2
Welcome to Studio 8H, Saoirse Ronan!
The Lady Bird star will host the next episode of Saturday Night Live, which is set for Dec. 2. The 23-year-old actress will be joined by musical guest U2.
While this will be Ronan’s first time hosting the long-running sketch series, U2 has appeared on the show three times before, supporting Val Kilmer in 2002, Luke Wilson in 2004, and Megan Fox in 2009.
Ronan can currently be seen in Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut Lady Bird, a coming-of-age tale about teenager Christine McPherson’s (Ronan) turbulent relationship with her mother, played by Laurie Metcalf.
U2’s next album, Songs of Experience, will be released on Dec. 1.
