Prepare yourself for Asgard jokes: Chris Hemsworth will make his “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut on March 7 with musical guest, the Zac Brown Band.
Hemsworth’s next feature-film appearances will be in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” December’s “In the Heart of the Sea” and the “Vacation” remake, sometime down the road.
The three-time Grammy winning Zac Brown Band is also making its first “SNL” appearance on the March episode.
Zac Brown Band has sold seven million albums to-date. The group’s three platinum-selling albums have produced an impressive 11 No. 1 singles.
Earlier this month, “SNL 40” became a cultural and ratings phenomenon. The reunion show hauled in 23.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
It was also huge on social media, setting a record for the most Twitter TV impressions of any series episode to-date.
“Saturday Night Live” is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
