EMILY BLUNT TO MAKE SNL HOSTING DEBUT OCTOBER 15.
Emily Blunt will make her Saturday Night Live hosting debut next month, TVLine has learned exclusively. An NBC spokesperson declined to comment, but I’m hearing the actress will headline the Oct. 15 edition (which falls one week after the release of her new thriller, The Girl on the Train).

Margot Robbie will kick off Season 42 this Saturday, with The Weeknd serving as musical guest. And as reported earlier today, the Oct. 8 show will be fronted by Hamilton phenom Lin-Manuel Miranda.

SNL enters its new season down three cast members, including veterans Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah and one-and-done featured player Jon Rudnitsky.

To fill the void, EP Lorne Michaels has hired a trio of newbies: SNL writer Mikey Day, male improv performer Alex Moffat and Latina impressionist/actor Melissa ...Read more

Lin-Manuel Miranda Hosting SNL On October 8th
http://tvline.com/2016/09/28/lin-manuel-miranda-snl-host-saturday-night-live-season-42/

"Hamilton" star Lin-Manuel Miranda is coming to Studio 8H for Show #2 of Season 42!

This is a fairly surprising choice, as SNL rarely books Broadway actors primarily for Broadway roles...But "Hamilton" is such a big deal right now, that it still manages to make sense!

And I guess it's appropriate enough that they matched him up with another act that fuses hip-hop with other genres...Twenty One Pilots have pretty split opinions about them...Me personally, while I may not be huge on some of their recent hits, I can get some enjoyment out of certain songs...In this age where most rappers sound like they just don't care about the crap they're rapping about, they're kind of a breath of fresh air...Not quite to the same level as, say, Kendrick Lamar, but you get my point...

Expect a "Hamilton" parody sketch...

MARGOT ROBBIE TO HOST SEASON PREMIERE OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
http://deadline.com/2016/09/margot-robbie-saturday-night-live-host-season-premiere-1201825015/

Suicide Squad star
Margot Robbie will host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on October 1. The Weeknd will be musical guest as the NBC late-night staple launches its 42nd season.

SNL is adding three new featured players for the upcoming season: improv performer Alex Moffat and America’s Got Talent finalist Melissa Villaseñor, as well as Mikey Day, who has been a writer on the show since 2013.

The trio would be filling the void left from the recent exit of three cast members, veterans Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah and freshman Jon Rudnitsky.

Moffat, Villaseñor and Day will also make their debut October 1.

Robbie played Harley Quinn in Warner Bros’ Suicide Squad, the studio’s latest in the DC Universe movies. The pic has made $720.8 million globally, and Robbie was widely considered the breakout among the ensemble cast ...Read more

Host Predictions

A little early to start making predictions, perhaps...But then again, last season revealed the first few hosts in August as well...

Now that they have revealed a few people getting the boot (two of which I wasn't expecting, I will admit), I expect the first three shows to be leaked soon...

Though I wouldn't be surprised if they're waiting until the Olympics are over to decide who the biggest breakout of the summer is...Bringing back Phelps again would obviously be a bad idea, but there are other choices...

Of course, I can definitely see someone like Ruck or Stuart saying something along the lines of "They tried an Olympian before, and it didn't work, so they won't likely do it again..." Well if one athlete being boring on the show made a bad example for all of them, they would have stopped booking ...Read more

‘Saturday Night Live’ Featured Player Jon Rudnitsky To Depart

By Nellie Andreeva5 hours ago

Jon Rudnitsky joins Saturday Night Live veterans Taran Killam & Jay Pharoah on the list of cast members who won’t be returning next season, the venerable NBC late-night sketch comedy’s 42nd.

Rudnitsky joined SNL as a featured player at the beginning of last season, the only new cast addition for Season 41 when there were no departures.

Dirty Dancing parody. His list of impersonations on the show included Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Tom Cruise and Vladimir Putin.

Rudnitsky is a stand-up comedian who won the 2012 Laugh Factory’s Laugh Bowl college comedy competition and performed with The Groundlings before joining SNL.
