“Saturday Night Live” will take a week off to finish off October, but is coming in hot in November. The next episode, set to air November 6, will be hosted by Kieran Culkin with musical guest Ed Sheeran.
Culkin currently stars in HBO’s “Succession,” which is in its third season. That said, November 6 will mark the actor’s hosting debut, but not his “SNL” debut. Back in 1991, when his brother Macauley hosted in season 17, Kieran appeared in a few sketches.
Musical guest Ed Sheeran will be marking his third appearance on the show, after first coming on in 2014 alongside host Seth Rogen. Sheeran performed on the show again in 2017, with host Alec Baldwin. In a promo for the show, the singer showed off his own impression of Donald Trump.
You do a really good Trump impression,” cast member Cecily Strong said at the time. Naturally, Baldwin assumed she was talking to him. Don’t worry, she clarified.
“Oh no, I’m sorry — I was talking to Ed,” says Strong, correcting a surprised Baldwin. “He was cracking everybody up. Ed, do it.”
In his first appearance, Sheeran performed tracks from his album “Multiply,” and in 2017, off “Divide.”
“SNL” announced Culkin and Sheeran during the October 23 episode, hosted by “SNL” alum Jason Sudeikis.
