Scarlett Johansson to Join ‘Saturday Night Live’ Five-Timers Club
The actress will host “SNL” for her fifth time on March 11February 23, 2017
Scarlett Johansson will host “Saturday Night Live” on March 11, officially inducting her into the prestigious Five-Timers Club. The group, reserved for those who have hosted the sketch-variety show five times or more, was made famous through a 1990 Tom Hanks monologue in which the movie star meets with fellow five-timers Steve Martin, Paul Simon, and Elliot Gould.
Johansson also joins Alec Baldwin, John Goodman, Drew Barrymore, Tina Fey, Chevy Chase, Justin Timberlake, Bill Murray, Ben Affleck, Candice Bergen, Danny DeVito, Buck Henry, and Christopher Walken in the esteemed (albeit invented) Five-Timers Club.
Singer-songwriter Lorde will serve as musical guest on the March 11 “SNL” episode. The late-night series returns live on March 4 with first-time host Octavia Spencer and musical guest Father John Misty.
