Two high-profile celebrities will appear on “Saturday Night Live” on NBC this coming month. The network has announced Thursday that Oscar Isaac and Zoë Kravitz will be hosting consecutive episodes.
Isaac and Kravitz, first-time hosts, will anchor after John Mulaney. He will mark his start at the highly esteemed SNL Five-Timers Club when he hosts on February 26 at the first post-winter Olympics episode with LCD Soundsystem.
Isaac has been on the show before. The actor, who is known for his roles in films like “Dune” and “Ex Machina,” showed up dressed with a pirate hat wearing a hook on his hand during the Halloween episode of “What Up With That” with Jason Sudeiki as host at the time.
Now, he’ll not come as a guest but officially as a host, taking over on March 5, with Charli XCX as his musical guest. Last December, Charli XCX was supposed to join the episode hosted by Paul Rudd; her appearance, however, was set aside due to COVID restrictions.
Kravitz will follow Isaac hosting on March 12. And Rosalía will appear as her musical guest. “The Batman” lead actress has made an appearance on SNL before. She appeared in the Donald Glover episode and performed in 2018. She promoted her song “Saturday,” carrying a red Solo cup in her hand.
SNL is broadcasted on NBC on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT.
