‘SNL’ Taps Vince Vaughn to Host, Confirms Melissa McCarthy
‘SNL‘ earned itself quite a bit of good will in this past weekend’s dual-hosting turn with national treasure Justin Timberlake, and the streak looks to go even higher in the coming weeks. Not only has NBC confirmed that ‘Identity Thief‘ star Melissa McCarthy will return for her second time hosting on April 6, but upcoming ‘The Internship‘ star Vince Vaughn will also make his second appearance the following week on April 13! Get a sneak peek of upcoming ‘SNL’ inside!
It’s been 15 years since actor Vince Vaughn first took the ‘SNL’ stage as host, but it seems ‘The Internship’ has really paid off. NBC has officially announced that Vaughn will return to the ‘SNL’ stage as host for the April 13 installment, accompanied by singer and musical guest Miguel.
In addition to announcing Vaughn’s turn as host, NBC also confirmed that ‘Bridesmaids‘ and ‘Identity Thief’ star Melissa McCarthy would in fact take up hosting duties on April 6, along with musical guest Phoenix. The ‘Mike & Molly’ star had been revealed as an upcoming host last week, though NBC declined to make any official confirmation at the time.
