Alec Baldwin let slip during a podcast with "Saturday Night Live" executive producer Lorne Michaels that pop icon Justin Bieber will host the NBC show in the next few months, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Baldwin let the news slip when he read off some of the names of confirmed "SNL" hosts this season, which includes Bieber, the story says. Michaels confirmed the news about 26 minutes into the podcast, the piece adds.
Baldwin noted, "The biggest names in the business are coming here thirty-something years [after SNL’s debut] to host the show. Ben Stiller, Melissa McCarthy, [who] won the Emmy Award, and Katy Perry’s coming and Jimmy Fallon, who’s double-dipping on your payroll, Jonah Hill, and I don’t want to ruin any other names, [but] Bieber’s confirmed, he’s the music and the [host]," according to the article.
