A “Saturday Night Live” veteran who spent eight years on the NBC late-night sketch comedy show will be back on familiar ground when he returns next month as a guest host. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Bill Hader will host the Oct. 11 installment of “SNL,” which will feature Hozier as the musical guest.
“This is Hader’s first time as a host; one can only hope he’ll tap into the deep reservoir of characters and impressions he accumulated during his eight years on the show,” the report notes. “And, yes, fingers crossed for Stefon.”
Hader exited “SNL” after the 2012-13 season. In 2012 he became the first “SNL” cast member since Eddie Murphy in 1984 to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.
