We’ve seen several A-list stars host Saturday Night Live this year, and two more will soon join their ranks. Ryan Gosling and Kristen Wiig have been announced as hosts of the first two April episodes of the popular sketch comedy show.

Kristen Wiig is a Saturday Night Live veteran, and she’ll return to her old stomping ground on April 6. She’ll join the Five-Timers Club with her upcoming appearance, and the recent six-time Brit Awards winner Raye will hit the stage by her side as a musical guest.

Wiig will soon appear in the Apple TV+ period comedy Palm Royale alongside Laura Dern, Allison Janney, and Leslie Bibb. The series will feature a total of ten episodes, set to debut on March 20 with the first three episodes.

Gosling, who recently stole the show at the Academy Awards with the electrifying performance of “I’m Just Ken” from Barbie, will hit the SNL stage on April 13. This will mark his third time hosting and country superstar Chris Stapleton will join him as the next musical guest.

Gosling’s SNL hosting duty will be a part of the promo for his upcoming film The Fall Guy. This action comedy received positive reviews at SXSW ahead of its theatrical release on May 3, and it will also star Emily Blunt, Winston Duke, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Hannah Waddingham, Stephanie Hsu, and Teresa Palmer.
