NBC’s snagged actress/director/producer Elizabeth Banks to host the November 14, 2015 episode of Saturday Night Live. Banks will be making her SNL debut just days after the final Hunger Games movie, Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, arrives in theaters, which means we can probably expect to see one or two of her Hunger Games co-stars making an appearance to support her first time as host.

NBC also announced Disclosure will be making their SNL debut as well on November 14th as the musical guest. And, according to the official announcement, fans can expect to see Sam Smith and Lorde performing with them on SNL. The British group’s second album, Caracal, was released in September and they’re set to perform songs from that album on SNL.
