Octavia Spencer to Host SNL’s First March Show
Only a half-hour into Alec Baldwin’s SNL return, and March might be ready to top it. NBC has announced the first official SNL host of March 2017, setting Hidden Figures star Octavia Spencer to make her hosting debut.
SNL made the announcement during Alec Baldwin’s 17th SNL hosting, setting Spencer to host the show’s March 4 return. For the moment, no musical guest has been announced to accompany the actress.
Spencer marks SNL’s fifth 2017 host, behind Rogue One star Felicity Jones, comedian and Master of None creator Aziz Ansari, Kristen Stewart, and Alec Baldwin. Perhaps not unironically, Spencer also previously guest starred with Alec Baldwin in an episode of 30 Rock.
There will be plenty more to dissect from Alec Baldwin’s return SNL performance (which of course featured Melissa McCarthy back in the role of Sean Spicer), but in the meantime, stay tuned for an update on who will appear with Octavia Spencer, as well as additional March SNL hosts.
