SNL Peter Dinklage Host

Saturday Night Live: Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage to Host for First Time

Saturday Night Live has tapped Emmy-winning Game of  Thrones star Peter Dinklage to host the April 2 episode, it was announced during this weekend’s telecast.

Dinklage appeared once before on the long0running NBC sketch series, playing “Peter Drunklage” during an April 2013 Weekend Update bit.

Serving as musical guest when Dinklage lords over Studio 8H will be Gwen Stefani, marking her fourth time doing so. (Her first time as musical guest was in 1996, as part of No Doubt.)

What do you think of the Dinklage/Stefani combo?

    So excited for Tyrion Lannister aka Peter Dinklage hosting SNL come April 2nd and he deserves it. Wonder if there’s going to be a Game of Thrones skit.

    Sounds awesome! I’ll likely watch just for Peter Dinklage, he’s a phenomenal actor! Love his work, definitely one of the Great ones!

  4. debunk the drunklage, and the tragic kingdom’s frozen reese’s piece : HOZEN, the cubicle, a science fiction transport vehicle to the mirror’s ; “Alice is in your flat, Lance”. ooooh that smell, Flatulance.

    Please bring in Will Ferrel so these two can reprise their roles from Elf.

    This should be interesting, he’s usually a pretty solid straight man for comedy.

  7. Amy in Missouri says:

    Hope they write some skits worthy of his talent!

  8. Ebby says:

    I haven’t watched SNL for a while, but I’ll definitely tune in to see this one. Looking forward to it.

  9. GoPeter says:

    Perhaps now, SNL will finally stop using the derogatory pejorative term “Midget” towards Dwarfs. As recently as last month “Midget was used in a sketch with Bernie Sanders / Larry David as well as several with “Stefan ” on Weekend update?

      Yes! Bill Hader is funny, but every time I saw a “Stefan” sketch I cringed. Not cool, man. Looking forward to Peter Dinklage hosting, though!
