Sam Rockwell, Jessica Chastain and Will Ferrell to Host ‘SNL’ In January

Golden Globe winner Sam Rockwell will make his hosting debut when “Saturday Night Live” returns for the new year on Jan. 13. His latest film, the Globe-winning “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” opened Nov. 10 and also stars Globe winner Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson.

Halsey will join Rockwell, who is also marking her debut as musical guest. Halsey’s latest album, “hopeless fountain kingdom,” was released in June and peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Jessica Chastain will take the “SNL” stage on Jan. 20 as host for her first time. Chastain can currently be seen in Aaron Sorkin’s drama “Molly’s Game,” opposite Idris Elba and Kevin Costner.

Alongside Chastain, Troye Sivan will appear as musical guest for the first time. “My My My!” – the lead single from Sivan’s new album – was released last night. “Blue Neighborhood,” his 2015 multi-platinum debut album, topped the iTunes charts in 66 countries.

“SNL” vet Will Ferrell, who was a cast member from 1995-2002, will return to Studio 8H as a four-time host on Jan. 27. His latest comedy, “Daddy’s Home 2,” was released in November.

Chris Stapleton will join Ferrell as musical guest for the second time. His most recent album, “From A Room: Volume 2,” was released on Dec. 1. It follows “From A Room: Volume 1,” which won the 2017 CMA for Album of the Year and is nominated for Best Country Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

“Saturday Night Live” is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
