Third time's a charm! Will Ferrell's earlier claim to fame was a regular job on Saturday Night Live, and he's hosted the NBC sketch comedy series two times since going on to make a name for himself in film. NBC announced today that Ferrell will return to studio 8H to host the show for the third time. Is it too soon to put in a request for a Jeopardy sketch and/or a cameo by Cheri Oteri (preferably in a Spartans cheerleading uniform)?
Recently, Ferrell starred in Casa de Mi Padre and has The Campaign with Zach Galifianakis coming up. We also have Anchorman 2 to look forward to eventually. Per NBC's announcement, Ferrell will host SNL on May 12. And third time will also be a charm for Usher, who will serve as the episode's musical guest, in anticipation of his upcoming album "Looking for Myself."
Just for old-times sake…
Before we get to see Ferrell back on SNL, we have Eli Manning to look forward to. The NY Giants quarterback is set to make his hosting debut on May 5. Rihanna will be the musical guest for the episode.
With Manning and Ferrell on board for two of the three final episodes of Season 37, that just leaves one episode left to find a host. Who will take on the season finale on May 19? We may have to wait until next month to find out.
