‘SNL’ Adds Charlize Theron and Andy Samberg as Final May Hosts
We’d already known that ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘ star Andrew Garfield would make his ‘SNL‘ hosting debut in early May, but the final hosts of the season web up much more excitement. Not only will Charlize Theron return for her second time on the ‘SNL’ stage, but distinguished alum and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ host Andy Samberg will return to make his hosting debut for the finale!
Theron will take the May 10 slot with musical guest The Black Keys, following Garfield’s May 3 hosting debut alongside five-time musical guest Coldplay. Most excitingly of all however, Samberg will host the May 17 season finale, with musical guest St. Vincent. The finale will mark Samberg’s first hosting gig since leaving in 2012, though the ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ star has popped up now and again in digital shorts, or to say goodbye to Seth Meyers this past season.
Of course, ‘SNL’ has an even brighter future ahead of it in 2015, after the announcement of a three-hour 40th anniversary special, the likes of which we’d expect Samberg to participate in some form regardless.
So, what do we think? It’s been an uneven season, but will Andrew Garfield, Charlize Theron and Andy Samberg close out season 39 with the right amount of strength? We can has new Lonely Island song, please? Tell us what you think of the final ‘SNL’ hosts this year in the comments!
