Kevin Hart to host 'SNL' for third time

Saturday Night Live TV show on NBC season 43

The actress, who now stars in the critically acclaimed "Lady Bird", is more well known for her dramatic roles in Oscar-nominated flicks like "Brooklyn" and "The Lovely Bones".

SZA will wrap up her already-impressive 2017 by making her Saturday Night Live debut on December 9, NBC announced Monday (Nov. 27). U2 will appear as musical guest. She'll finally get a chance to show off her comedic chops. The last time the Foos were on their own as the musical guest was in 2011. It will be their fourth appearance on the variety show. The R&B songstress released her first studio album back in June, which included a number of songs that reached the top of the Billboard charts.

Saoirse Ronan is a NY native, but she grew up in Ireland, so who better to join her as musical host than U2?

Those SNL episodes will round out December's three-week run of new shows.

SNL has been bringing the heat so far in Season 43, which officially premiered in September, with a steady stream of hilarious guests and musical acts: from Ryan Gossling, Gal Gadot and Larry David to Jay Z, Sam Smith and Miley Cyrus.

The next episode will air December 9th, hosted by The Deuce's James Franco with musical guest SZA.

Saturday Night Live's upcoming hosts have plenty of new movies to promote.
