Late night host Jimmy Fallon will be coming home to Saturday Night Live today, December 17, for the show’s Christmas episode and, this time around, he’ll be the one hosting the show.
Fallon was a cast member on Saturday Night Live for 6 years – but tonight will mark the first time since his departure in 2004 that he’s hosted the show. As much as experience as he may have as a cast member, he says he’s still “freaking out” about hosting.
“I’m freaking out because I’m just the biggest fan of the show – even before I became a cast member – and now hosting is a dream come true,” Jimmy told Access Hollywood at an SNL rehearsal. “I mean, these guys are the best at what they do… it’s so exciting and so fun to be here. It’s gonna be a great show.”
Canadian singer-songwriter Michael Bublé is set as the musical guest for tonight’s episode, and Fallon went on to say that we might expect to see some of Bublé’s comedic skills on display in the show as well.
“He’s gonna do sketches too. We’re gonna make Michael Buble sing and just make a fool of himself, which he is totally on board with doing,” he said. “He’s awesome.”
