Gal Gadot and Kumail Nanjiani to Host ‘SNL’ in October
Well, if Baby Goose didn’t float your boat, SNL’s October lineup will either fill you with Wonder, or make you Sick with anticipation. Season 43’s next hosts have been announced, including Gal Gadot and Kumail Nanjiani.
NBC confirms that where Ryan Gosling will host the September 30 SNL premiere with musical guest Jay-Z, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot will make her hosting debut the following week of October 7, joined by Sam Smith. The Big Sick and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani will similarly make his debut on October 14, joined by musical guest Pink.
Gosling will of course be on hand to promote the release of Blade Runner 2049, while Gadot is still riding the wave of Wonder Woman success right into Justice League this November. Nanjiani, meanwhile, significantly upped his profile co-writing and starring in this summer’s The Big Sick, while the actor also lent his voice to The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
We’ll kick off the countdown to SNL Season 43 next week, so stay tuned for more on Gosling, Gadot and Nanjiani.
