SNL Is Pulling Out The Big Guns As Emily Blunt & Tom By God Hanks Will Host The Next Two Episodes
— Saturday Night Live (@nbcsnl) October 7, 2016
Margot Robbie’s season premiere couldn’t have gone any better, both from a performance and ratings standpoint. With Broadway star Lin Manuel-Miranda ready to host tomorrow night’s show, SNL decided to leak out the final two hosts of October, and boy are they wonderful. Next week we’ll see Emily Blunt and Bruno Mars, which is a killer combination. Emily Blunt will most likely fall into the Margot Robbie category: a very talented actress who doesn’t mind being silly, which usually makes for the best kind of hosts. Bruno Mars is a former host in his own right, so hopefully he steps into a sketch or two as well. Following that is Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga. Tom Hanks is his own category completely, and I can’t think of enough complimentary words to type to describe how great he’s going to be. This is his first hosting stint since 2006 (his 9th overall), so he’s got 10 years worth of charm to bestow upon us. Gaga, like Bruno Mars, has hosted the show before, but October 22nd belongs to Tom Hanks. Don’t you dare think otherwise.
