It’s been years since the last time Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live -10 years to be exact. Finally, the actor will end his lengthy SNL hiatus and host the sketch comedy show on Saturday.
Carell’s return to SNL also comes during the show’s annual Thanksgiving special, so the odds of Carell belting out a holiday tune around a table full of turkey seem incredibly high. Not to mention, Carell kind of has a habit of singing on SNL . Some of his best moments featured the comedian singing a tune including 2008’s “Bless This Child” shit with former SNL cast member Kristen Wiig and the hilarious 2005 sketch, “The Lundford Twins Feel Good Variety Hour.”
No matter the SNL Shenanigans Carell joins in on, his appearance on the comedy show will probably be worth the wait.
