At Saturday Night Live, Lorne Michaels like to announce things whenever he pleases and that means we never know who is hosting future shows of any given season of Saturday Night Live until Michaels wants us to know. Typically the announcements come in batches or live during a show and the latter was the case on Saturday Night when it was announced that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield would be hosting the next new episode of the show with musical guest Coldplay.
Not many people will be that surprised that Garfield is hosting the show as The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is slated to hit theaters nationwide that weekend and typically actors with projects to promote hit up Saturday Night Live to do so. When it comes to projects to promote, they don’t come much bigger than the next big Spider-Man movie.
Garfield also adds his name to a long list of first time hosts this year which already includes Kerry Washington, Drake and Edward Norton.
