‘This Is Us’ Star Sterling K. Brown and Bill Hader to Host ‘SNL’ in March
As if Golden Globes, SAG Awards and a role in Black Panther weren’t enough, Sterling K. Brown’s banner 2018 is adding another honor. The This Is Us star will make his SNL hosting debut in March, flanked by Charles Barkley and Bill Hader.
Where previously SNL announced Charles Barkley and Migos would kick off the March 3 return, NBC now confirms that Brown will make his hosting debut the following week on March 10, joined by musical guest James Bay. The following Saturday of March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) will see SNL alum Bill Hader hosting for the second time, joined by musical guest Arcade Fire.
This is Barkley’s third outing as SNL host, following turns in 2012 and 2014, and will serve as Migos’ first performance. Both Sterling K. Brown and James Bay will similarly make their series debuts, while Hader is likely returning to promote his new HBO hitman comedy, Barry. Meanwhile, Arcade Fire will technically enter the Five-Timers Club, having previously performed in 2007, 2010, 2012 (with Mick Jagger) and 2013.
SNL will remain on hiatus for a few weeks as the Winter Olympics coverage continues, so stay tuned for more on the first March 2018 shows.
