Jennifer Lawrence had the honor of hosting Saturday Night Live back in January, but now it’s her Catching Fire co-star’s turn! The hit NBC show just announced on their Facebook page that Josh Hutcherson will take on hosting duties for the show’s November 23 episode. Joining him will be musical guest, Haim.
They couldn’t have caught him at a better time, since Catching Fire will have JUST debuted in theaters merely a day before. We’re sure there will be at least one Catching Fire and or Hunger Games related sketch, no? We guess this will be Josh’s way of celebrating the film’s long-awaited release, as many experts predict Catching Fire will rake in about $150 million when it hits theaters. Um, no big deal.
In addition to Josh’s big news, SNL also revealed that Lady Gaga will host AND perform (a first for her) the show’s November 16 episode.
Are you excited for Josh to host SNL? How do you think he’ll do? Sound off in the comments section!
