Saturday Night Live Is Betting On Familiar Faces Kristen Wiig And Ben Affleck For Final Two Episodes

Kristen Wiig is an SNL favorite and she’s coming back for another hosting turn on May 11th. The news if very exciting, since we already know Wiig can do it and do it well. She has her own brand of comedy and her impressions are almost always spot on. Remember Lana del Ray? Yes, there’s no doubt that the lady can act. Wiig has some hilarious original characters, like “flirting expert” Rebecca Larue, but her main strength is in impressions. She’s done everyone from Madonna to Drew Barrymore – no one is safe from the comedienne’s wit. And of course, ever the show to come up with an unexpected combination, the musical guests for that week will be New York natives Vampire Weekend. The May 11th episode will be worth tuning in, but there’s more.

One week later, the May 18th season finale of Saturday Night Live will be jam packed with celebrities and interesting guests. Ben Affleck is set to appear on the comedy show, E!News has announced. He will be accompanied by none other than Kanye West as the traditional musical guest. We’ve heard so much of Affleck in the role of a director recently, that it’s easy to forget that he was an actor first. The SNL gig should be a welcome change of pace then. This will be the fifth time he gets to host the show, but Affleck hasn’t done the job since way back in 2008. It’ll be cool to see what he comes up with this time, especially since everyone wants to see SNL go out with a bang.
