Seth MacFarlane to Host SNL PremiereNBC’s released the list of hosts for the first episodes of Saturday Night Live‘s 38th season (38th!) and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) has the honor of kicking off the season as host for episode one. Joining MacFarlane on the September 15th episode will be musical guest Frank Ocean who will also be making his SNL debut that evening.
Next up, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (currently on screen in The Dark Knight Rises and Premium Rush) will be back for his second stint as SNL host on September 22nd. Gordon-Levitt, who has Looper and Lincoln coming out later this year, will be joined by Mumford & Sons making their first appearance on the late-night program. The group’s new album Babel will drop two days after their SNL debut.
And on October 6th, Daniel Craig – recently seen parachuting into the London Olympics with the Queen – will make his SNL debut. Craig’s got Skyfall, his third Bond film, coming to theaters on November 9th so we can expect to see him a lot in the month of October. Muse will make their second appearance on SNL with the October 6th episode. Their sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, will be released just days prior on October 2nd.
