“Black Monday” star Don Cheadle will make his “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut on Feb. 16, after singer Halsey pulls double duty as host and musical guest when the show returns the week before.

Cheadle is currently starring on the ’80s-set Showtime series about the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street and will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe return as Col. James Rhodes when “Avengers: Endgame” hits theaters April 26.

He will be joined by first-time musical guest Gary Clark Jr., whose new album, “The Land,” will be released on Feb. 22.

While Halsey performed last year as a musical guest, and also appeared alongside musical guest Lil’ Wayne back in November, this will mark her first time hosting. Her double-platinum hit single, “Without Me,” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and has racked up almost 1 billion global streams to date.

Acting as “SNL” host and musical guest, Halsey joins a club that includes the likes of Donald Glover, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Drake, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift.

Last week, “Glass” star James McAvoy hosted, with Meek Mill performing and Steve Martin making a surprise appearance portraying Roger Stone during the cold open.

“Saturday Night Live” airs live coast-to-coast Saturdays at 11:30 ET/8:30 PT on NBC.
