Woody Harrelson is returning to “Saturday Night Live,” and he’s joining an exclusive club in doing so. The actor will host the show’s Feb. 25 episode.

The show will mark the actor’s fifth time hosting, giving him entry into the sketch comedy show’s prestigious 5-Timers Club. He first nabbed the gig in 1989, then returned as host in 1992, again in 2014, and most recently hosted the show in September of 2019.

Harrelson will become the 24th member of the 5-Timers Club, joining other big names including Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Tina Fey, Scarlett Johansson and more. Of course, the actor has been on the show more than five times, just not as a host. He briefly served as “SNL’s” resident Joe Biden impersonator, before he was replaced by Jim Carrey in 2020.

That being said, we may want to be ready for his return as the president. When he exited the role in 2020, he did say, “I’d be open to doing it again, of course. It’s so fun.”

Alongside Harrelson as host, musician Jack White will perform on Feb. 25.
