NBC’s Saturday Night Live has announced its final hosts for 2014, The Hobbit himself included.
Following this weekend’s Cameron Diaz-fronted outing, Season 40 of the long-running sketch series will resume on Dec. 6 with James Franco delivering his third turn as lord of Studio 8H. Nicki Minaj will serve as musical guest, her second time doing so.
On Dec. 13 — just days before The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters — Emmy winner Martin Freeman (Sherlock) will make his SNL hosting debut, alongside first-time musical guest Charli XCX.
Then on Dec. 20, multiple Academy Award nominee Amy Adams will return for her second time as host, while One Direction puts in their third appearance as musical guest. (Hey, maybe that one band member can actually sing by now…?)
