James Franco, Kevin Hart and Saoirse Ronan Are Your Final ‘SNL’ Hosts of 2017
SNL had already declared Saoirse Ronan as our first December host, and the time has come to round out 2017. James Franco will return to the sketch comedy series, as will comedian Kevin Hart and some fan-favorite musical guests to close out the year.
As announced during Chance The Rapper’s SNL return, Lady Bird star Ronan will make her hosting debut this coming Saturday, December 2, joined by musical guest and fellow Ireland natives U2. The following Saturday will see James Franco making his fourth appearance as host; this time joined by SZA. Finally, December 16 will close out 2017 with Jumanji star Kevin Hart, joined by Foo Fighters as musical guest.
Ronan is certainly having a banner week, as Lady Bird just became Rotten Tomatoes’ best reviewed film. Franco has similarly garnered positive buzz for his role as Tommy Wiseau in the upcoming The Disaster Artist, while Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has also seen some decent early word-of-mouth.
We’ll likely see Ronan’s first SNL promos in the coming days, so stay tuned for the latest on the final 2017 shows.
