A staple of the long running sketch series Saturday Night Live, involves each episode being hosted by a major film or TV star. This fall SNL will return to NBC for its 35th season, and the first four hosts of the show have already been announced. Transformers star Megan Fox, Ryan Reynolds, Drew Barrymore, and Gerard Butler have all been confirmed to appear on the New York stage opposite some of today’s top musical acts.
According to Hitfix, Megan Fox will kick off this year’s season by appearing on the September 26th premiere episode with U2 serving as the musical guest. Ryan Reynolds will host on October 3rd, with a performance by Lady Gaga, followed by Drew Barrymore on October 10th, and Gerard Butler on October 17th. As you can see the musical acts haven’t been confirmed for Barrymore or Butler.
This will be the sixth time that Barymore has hosted the show, the first being back in 1982 when she was just seven years old. She’ll be promoting her film Whip It, which co-stars SNL alum, Kristen Wiig. Butler will be on hand to promote his film Law Abiding Citizen, which will be opening that same weekend.
