Office Star Ed Helms Scores SNL Hosting Duties
Saturday Night Live has locked in The Office funnyman Ed Helms to host the season’s penultimate episode, completing a stellar May Sweeps lineup that also includes Tina Fey and Justin Timberlake.
Joining Helms for the May 14 installment is legendary singer-songwriter and eight-time musical guest Paul Simon.
Helms’ inaugural SNL stint is pegged to the season finale of The Office and the opening of The Hangover II.
As TVLine previously reported, Fey kicks off SNL‘s batch of all-new episodes on May 7 accompanied by U.K. songstress Ellie Goulding. And popstar-turned-actor-turned-SNL staple Timberlake will close out the season with Lady Gaga by his side.
