Idris Elba Set To Make “Saturday Night Live” Hosting Debut

Idris Elba will host NBC’s Saturday Night Live on March 9, making his first appearance on the late-night comedy show. His musical guest will be Khalid, also an SNL newcomer.


Elba’s SNL gig arrives just before the March 15 premiere of his Turn Up Charlie, the Netflix comedy series he co-created and stars in.

A five-time Emmy nominee, Elba’s credits include The Wire, Luther, and the Thor and Avengers films, among others. Khalid has a new album dropping in April.

Elba’s SNL episode follows the previously announced March 2 episode hosted by John Mulaney, with musical guest singer/songwriter Thomas Rhett.
