Melissa McCarthy Previews Her “SNL” Hosting Gig
Melissa McCarthy is set to guest host “Saturday Night Live” this Saturday, just one day before the Super Bowl.
“The Heat” star and Kenan Thompson start off the preview reel for the episode by riffing on alternative names to call the Super Bowl, since the name is no heavily trademarked.
This marks her third appearance as a guest host on “SNL,” which she and Thompson “fight” over when he suggests that perhaps the third time will be the charm.
Imagine Dragons, who performed at the Grammys this past weekend with Kendrick Lamar, will serve as musical guests while McCarthy hosts.
In July, she will appear in “Tammy,” which she co-wrote with her husband, alongside Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney and Kathy Bates.
Check out the “SNL” promo to hear Melissa’s vocal stylings and to see her basketball skills. “SNL” will air Saturday at 11:30pm on NBC.
