Charlize Theron and Andy Samberg Tapped to Host Final 'SNL's of the Season

 

We're rapidly nearing the end of 'Saturday Night Live's historic 39th season, and NBC has just revealed the final two hosts and musical guests until 'SNL's fall return.

First up is Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, who will host the penultimate episode of the season. The seemingly ageless South African beauty has hosted 'SNL' twice before, first in 2000 (pre-Oscar) and again in 2009 (post-Oscar).

Theron will be appearing on the show in support of her new comedy project 'A Million Ways to Die in the West,' which was both written and directed by 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane, and opens May 30. The musical guest on Theron's episode will be seven-time Grammy winners 'The Black Keys.'

'SNL's season finale will mark the return of one of its most recent prodigal sons, Lonely Island frontman Andy Samberg. Samberg has made a few uncredited sketch appearances since leaving the regular cast in 2012, but this will be his first time hosting.

Samberg has done well for himself since departing 'SNL,' starring in several movies, and currently serving as lead actor on FOX sitcom 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine.' Samberg won a Golden Globe for his work during Season 1 of 'Nine-Nine,' which will return for a second round in the fall. The musical guest backing him up will be indie songstress St. Vincent.

'Saturday Night Live' returns on May 10, with Charlize Theron as host. The Andy Samberg hosted finale will air on May 17.
