Jonah Hill Hosts 'SNL': Justin Bieber Jokes and 3 Things to Watch For
Jonah Hill is returning to Saturday Night Live, marking his third outing as host.
The actor, an Oscar nominee for The Wolf of Wall Street, will be joined by musical guest Bastille in Saturday's episode, which has plenty of interesting news it could potentially play off of. Here are four things to watch for.
SNL already tackled Justin Bieber's infamous egging incident last week, which in hindsight is pretty quaint compared with his DUI arrest in Miami Beach Thursday. The big question: Will Kate McKinnon reprise her take on the pop star for the cold open, or will Bieber jokes be kept to Weekend Update?
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman's rant captivated the country, and is a pretty good bet for the cold open if Bieber doesn't make the cut.
It's time for SNL to do something big with the many Grammy nominees it has welcomed to its stage over the past 12 months: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; Katy Perry; Justin Timberlake; Alabama Shakes; Rihanna; Drake and Kanye West. Musically talented castmembers like Jay Pharoah may have to work overtime.

In his promos for this week's show, Hill has already made fun of the numerous f-words in his Oscar-nominated film. The nearly NC-17 rated material in Martin Scorsese's latest is a good bet to get the SNL treatment -- or at least get a shoutout in Hill's opening monologue.
