As previously reported, this Saturday, Dec. 1, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Claire Foy (The Crown, First Man, The Girl in the Spider’s Web) will make her SNL debut. Anderson .Paak is slated as musical guest, promoting his third studio album, Oxnard.
Aquaman’s Jason Momoa will host the following Saturday night, Dec. 8, to publicize the latest flick from DC and Warner Bros., out next month. Mumford & Sons, who recently released their fourth studio album, Delta, will return as musical guests on the show for the third time.
Matt Damon will wrap up 2018 on Saturday, Dec. 15, marking his return as host for the first time since 2002. (Of course, our Christmas wish is that Damon recreates his beer-obsessed Brett Kavanaugh character, the highlight of the season 44 premiere episode.) Musical guests will be Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson (writer of Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” producer of Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” and successful solo musician in his own right), who have a new collab in the works.
Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
