Saturday Night Live: Taraji P. Henson and Michael Keaton Set as April Hosts

Taraji P. Henson SNL Host

Saturday Night Live will treat you to a Cookie this April, when Empire scene stealer Taraji P. Henson makes her debut as host of NBC’s long-running sketch series.

But first: Opening up SNL’s April run on the 4th, Birdman Michael Keaton will lord over Studio 8H for a third time, alongside first-time musical guest Carly Rae Jepsen.

Then, on April 11, Henson will make her SNL hosting debut, while Mumford & Sons serves up their second turn as musical guest.

Saturday Night Live resumes Season 40 this weekend with host Dwayne Johnson and musical guest George Ezra.

Which of the April combos are you most anticipating?

      If her new Fox sitcom gets picked up maybe they’ll get her to host. I was born in 1990 so i didn’t watch the original SNL, but she was great in 3rd Rock. I’m so happy for Taraji’s success. She was always underused on POI.

    I thought I’d never said this, but now I’m glad Taraji left POI. (still miss her though), but now she is a star she was supposed to be eons ago! Waiting impatiently for April 11!
