NBC’s Saturday Night Live has announced the hosts of the first three episodes of season 43. Ryan Gosling was previously announced as the host of the season premiere on September 30, 2017 with musical guest Jay-Z. Now NBC’s confirmed Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, will host the October 7th episode and Kumail Nanjiani will host on October 14th.
Gosling previously hosted the late night variety show in 2015. Jay-Z’s season 43 appearance will mark the fourth time he’s performed on SNL. Gosling has Blade Runner 2049 heading to theaters on October 6th and he’s attached to star as Neil Armstrong in First Man for his La La Land director Damien Chazelle.
Gal Gadot’s October 7th SNL appearance will be her first as host. She’ll be back in theaters reprising her role as Wonder Woman in Justice League opening on November 17th. The October 7th musical guest will be Sam Smith, making his second appearance on SNL.
Silicon Valley‘s Kumail Nanjiani will make his hosting debut on October 14th. Nanjiani’s The Big Sick was one of the sleeper hits of the year and will likely earn the actor/writer awards consideration. He’ll be joined on the October 14th episode by P!nk, making her third appearance as musical guest.
Season 43 of Saturday Night Live will air live on both coasts.
