John Krasinski Is Set To Make His Saturday Night Live Debut As Host

“Aaaaaand cue the pinching myself. #SNL”

The late night sketch series, Saturday Night Live, is all to return on January 30 with five consecutive new shows. And the show is handing hosting debuts to a trio of multi-hyphenate stars.

Among the three new hosts, John Krasinski will be making his debut, who recently hosted his own digital series, Some Good News, and directed A Quiet Place Part II.

John Krasinski was set to host SNL back in March, in conjunction with the release of A Quiet Place II, but the episode was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.   

Krasinski has got another shot at SNL, and we can’t wait to see what he has got in store for us.

Joining John Krasinski will also be Dan Levy and Regina King as the first three hosts of the new year. The actors will be joined with their respective musical guests Machine Gun Kelly, Phoebe Bridgers, and Nathaniel Rateliff.

Taking to Instagram, John Krasinski posted a picture of the date of the show where his level of excitement could be measured. “Aaaaaand cue the pinching myself. #SNL,” he captioned the post. 

Besides the actor, Schitt’s Creek co-creator and star Dan Levy will host February 6 episode with singer Phoebe Bridgers as the guest. 

For both Levy and Bridgers, the past year was an exciting one, with the final season of Schitt’s Creek garnering a record-breaking nine Emmy Awards in September and Bridgers earning four Grammy nods for the upcoming awards show, including the best new artist.

Levy has proven to be a gifted comedy star and writer, and he’s exactly the kind of talent you want to see hosting SNL.

Levy’s show will be followed by veteran actress and Oscar winner Regina King, who will host SNL for the first time on Feb. 13, along with singer-songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff, who will serve as the musical guest.

Nathaniel Rateliff new single “Redemption” was written for the upcoming Apple TV+ original film Palmer starring Justin Timberlake. Rateliff also released his album And It’s Still Alright back in February of 2020.

SNL will continue with new shows on February 20 and 27 with hosts and musical guests that are not yet announced.

The trio joins the likes of Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Issa Rae, John Mulaney, Dave Chappelle, Jason Bateman, Timothée Chalamet, and Kristen Wiig as hosts across its 46th season.
