SNL: Jonah Hill to Host – and Justin Bieber, Too? Plus: Which Cast Member Has Abruptly Left?
Hill, who also has 21 Jump Street (which will probably not be Oscar-nominated) hitting theaters soon, will deliver his SNL encore on March 10, EW.com reports. He first served as host in March 2008.
Bieber, meanwhile, was among the names Alec Baldwin dropped as an upcoming host during a Here’s the Thing podcast conversation with SNL boss Lorne Michaels. Bieber performed as the show’s musical guest in April 2010.
NBC has yet to officially confirm either of the bookings.
In other SNL news: On the way out of Studio 8H is Paul Brittain, who has been a featured player for a season-and-a-half. Per EW.com, the actor has “amicably” parted ways with the long-running sketch series, effectively immediately, to “pursue other projects.” Brittain’s SNL characters include Lord Cecil Wyndemere and “Sex” Ed Vincent.
