NBC announced Tuesday that Katy Perry’s better half, Russell Brand, will act as first-time host on the February 12 episode of SNL, along with fellow first-timer Chris Brown (as musical guest).
Brand is currently promoting (albeit a bit early) his animated feature Hop, out April 1, and the remake of Arthur, which also stars Helen Mirren, out April 8.
Brown’s fourth album “F.A.M.E.” is scheduled for a March 22 release.
Stepping in as host of SNL this Saturday is a star who is anything but a rookie, longtime cast member (and four-time host), Dana Carvey. Linkin Park will perform in the February 5 episode.
