“I’ve never forgotten where I came from,” joked Fallon in a released statement. “That’s why I’m so incredibly honored to be hosting the Saturday Night Times program December 17th on HGTV.”
The Saturday Night Live alumnus was a regular player at the show for six years before leaving in 2004 to pursue a career in film, only to get the job hosting the Late Show in 2009 – a job that has already garnered the loveable funny-man three Emmy nominations.
However, the gifted impersonator has made a few surprise visits to his old stomping ground where he’s reprised old characters such as Barry Gibb from ‘The Barry Gibb Talk Show,” doing his hardest to make host Justin Timberlake laugh throughout the entire sketch.
The host of Late Night on NBC recently tweeted the news, just one in a series of recent announcements of future hosts by the folks over at the late night sketch show. Also hosting this coming season will be Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy (October 1st), with musical guest Lady Antebellum. Fallon himself will be joined by musical guest Michael Buble who will be promoting his own Christmas album.
Saturday Night Live‘s latest season kicks off on September 24th with host Alec Baldwin who will be breaking the record for number of times hosted (now a record 16) along with musical guest Radiohead.
