Cumberbatch, who can next be seen in Marvel’s Doctor Strange (out on Nov. 4), is front and center in this new SNL promo, speaking directly to the iconic New York studio when he declares “we meet at last” before taking center stage.
The actor is perhaps the most fitting choice to serve as host of SNL‘s last pre-Election Day outing. As you’ll recall, the British thespian once portrayed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in the 2013 thriller The Fifth Estate. It’s a pretty safe bet he’ll reprise that role this weekend.
Press PLAY on the teaser above, then tell us if you’ll be tuning in for Cumberbatch’s SNL hosting debut.
