Last night, Megan Tee Stallion joined the ranks of the former Saturday Night Live hosts who also pulled double duty as the musical guest (that is a surprisingly long list), and the NBC comedy institution is already gearing up to do it again: Last night, SNL announced that its upcoming Oct. 29 show will be hosted and musically guested by Jack Harlow — an artist who has had an impressive run this year from “people don’t know who he is” to “winning VMAs” to “host SNL” (although as other musical artists with a similar journey can attest, this will inevitably lead to an increase in more out of touch people angrily saying “who is Jack Harlow” when October 29th rolls around).
If you don’t know Jack Harlow, he released a new album this year called Come home, the kids miss youand (as mentioned above) won Song Of The Summer at the MTV Video Music Awards for “First Class” — plus a few others thanks to his work on Lil Nas X’s “Industry Baby.” He will also star in a remake of White men can’t jumpwhich original White men can’t jump star Woody Harrelson declared will be “a better film than we made.” The remake is directed by Charles Kidd II, aka Calmatic, who also directs House party remake and directed a small music video called “Old Town Road.” Kenya Barris wrote White men can’t jump remake, and Sinqua Walls, Lance Reddick, Teyana Taylor and Vince Staples will appear in it.
Also to save you having to go through the entire slideshow we released at the beginning of the seasonwe have so far correctly predicted zero SNL hosts for this year. In fact, with so many hosts already pulling double duty, maybe we could get an episode with a bunch of hosts? Tom Cruise and Tim Robinson and Quinta Brunson? Everyone playing Joe Biden in a tired political skit that’s also a tired talk show parody?
