Saturday Night Live returns tonight with another brand new episode. Who will be the latest host to take over Studio 8H for SNL season 47?

It’s been all about the first-timers through the first two episodes of the season. Owen Wilson and Kim Kardashian West both made their SNL debuts over the past two weeks. And both showed that they weren’t intimidated by the task.

We’ll see if that trend continues tonight with another first-time SNL host. Tonight’s host is No Time to Die star Rami Malek. He’ll be backed up by musical guest Young Thug.

Malek is the second No Time to Die star to host SNL. Fans may recall that James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, hosted back in season 45. He was the last in-studio host before the pandemic forced SNL to become a remote production. It’s also a reminder of how many delays the Bond film has been through over the past few years.

Saturday Night Live has had fun with Rami Malek in the past

Rami Malek will be the third consecutive host making their Saturday Night Live debut. And just like Owen Wilson and Kim Kardashian West, Malek has been impersonated on SNL in the past.

Fans may be familiar with Pete Davidson’s take on the Oscar-winner and former star of Mr. Robot. If you need a reminder, check out the sketches below:
