Octavia Spencer SNL Promos See Seth Meyers’ Return (Sort Of)
We’ve had a few weeks off from SNL, and considering Hidden Figures star Octavia Spencer will make her hosting debut this weekend, we’d forgive some unfamiliarity with the 30 Rockefeller Plaza studios. So it is with Spencer’s first promos, which bring a familiar face behind the desk from SNL’s Weekend Update glory days.
SNL released the first official promos from Octavia Spencer’s March 4 hosting gig, wherein she’ll be joined by musical guest Father John Misty. The brief spot itself features Spencer taking an early peek at the Studio 8H stage, only to find herself on the Late Night With Seth Meyers stage, populated by exactly whom you might expect.
After SNL kicks off March with Spencer, the following Saturday will see Ghost in the Shell and Avengers star Scarlett Johansson making her entrance into the SNL five-timers club, alongside musical guest Lorde. Both Misty and Lorde will be making their SNL debuts as well.
Surely we’ll see Saturday Night Live tackling the infamous Oscar mix-up, if only to offer a break to cold opens featuring either Alec Baldwin’s Trump, or Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer. We’ll see whatever topical fare gets the spotlight this weekend, but in the meantime, check out the promo above.
