Scarlett Johansson to Host SNL Again

Tom Hanks and Justin Timberlake, start embroidering that bathrobe now: Scarlett Johansson once more has been chosen as Saturday Night Live host, which will double as her induction into the Five Timers’ Club.

The Avengers star will emcee the March 11 outing, with Lorde as musical guest, NBC announced Thursday.

Johannson previously hosted in 2006, 2007, 2010 and 2015.

The NBC sketch-comedy series also announced that Father John Misty will be the musical act when Octavia Spencer (Red Band Society) hosts on March 4.

    I am sure there will be sketch involving the Russian Black Widow and certain politicians in Washington D. C.
    Congratulations to Ms. Johansson on being in more big money making movies than any other actor in 2016.

      Let’s calm down…I’m pretty sure it was due to the superhero angle vs seeing it just for her.

        In addition to being in Captain America: Civil War; she was also in The Jungle Book, Sing, and
        Hail, Caesar! Being cast in popular movies means Ms. Johansson is an A-list star whose in demand and who has been cast in other films where she is the lead actress and has to act; such as Match Point and Under the Skin.
        The other stars from Captain America don’t have the same resume for 2016, otherwise it would be a multi person tie for the title.

          Not to mention she’s probably hosting SNL to promote Ghost in the Shell, which comes out towards the end of this month.

            As Craig Ferguson joked on his show before the Brits retook that part of our vountry, there is no reason to cast Kate Beckinsale in a movie such as “Blackout” (or maybe it was “Whiteout”) where snow covers 98% of the screen. Likewise, there is no point to cast Scarlett in a movie with “Ghost” in the title. (I like to think Kevin Bacon in “Hollow Man” was Hollywood’s self-given revenge for the “Six Degrees” game.)

    I hope this means new songs from Lorde

    Since “Musical Director” Armisen seems to disappear from “Seth Meyers” a ton with no explanation given by the host (which he could do when crediting & naming the sit-in drummer), let’s hope Fred comes back to “SNL” with a few chandeliers!!!
