The latest season of Saturday Night Live is in full swing, and they just landed another A-list host. Jason Momoa will be in charge of hosting an episode of the popular sketch comedy series ahead of the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom release, with musical guest Tate McRae.

Momoa previously hosted SNL in 2018, when the first Aquaman film came out, and he’s ready to give it another go. He’s been tapped to host the popular NBC show on November 18, with the Canadian singer Tate McRae serving as the musical guest, following the release of her hit song “Greedy”.

Momoa’s hosting spot comes ahead of the release of his upcoming superhero blockbuster Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, set to be released on December 22. Momoa has been pretty booked and busy throughout 2023, and we’ve also seen him play the main villain in Fast X, in addition to making a cameo as Aquaman in The Flash.

Momoa isn’t the first star of a major studio blockbuster to be announced as the SNL host amid the SAG-AFTRA strike. He’ll follow in the footsteps of the Wonka star Timothée Chalamet, who’ll host the show on November 11 with a musical guest Boygenius.
