Vince Vaughn To Host ‘SNL’ In April [Video]
Vince Vaughn will be hosting Saturday Night Live in April, marking his return to the sketch comedy series after almost 15 years.
Vaughn is set to host on April 13. “Adorn” singer Miguel will be the musical guest that night.
The first — and last — time Vaughn hosted SNL was in 1998. At the time, Vaughn had only done a few movies, including Swingers, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Return to Paradise. Most notably, 1998 was the year Vaughn starred in the universally panned remake of Psycho with Anne Heche. The film was a nearly shot-for-shot remake of the Hitchcock classic, and also used the same musical score as the original.
That same year, Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sanz joined the cast of SNL and remained for six and eight years, respectively. Chris Parnell also joined the cast that year as a featured player before being promoted to a repertory player the following season.
Vaughn will be the second second-timer to host SNL in April. Identity Thief star Melissa McCarthy will be hosting on April 6, joined by musical guest Phoenix. McCarthy received rave reviews for her performance the first time around and is widely expected to knock it out of the park again.
Vince Vaughn will be promoting his upcoming movie, The Internship, a comedy about two middle-aged salesman who take internships at Google. The film will see Vaughn reunited with his Wedding Crashers co-star Owen Wilson. The duo dropped the trailer for the film last month, and aired it during a live Google+ hangout that was hosted by Conan O’Brien.
Vaughn will also be reprising his role as Wes Mantooth in the upcoming Anchorman sequel, which is set to be released in December.
