Saturday Night Live is prepped for a return of a favorite son.

NBC announced on Tuesday that one-time castmember Martin Short will be hosting the Dec. 15 episode of the show, which will serve as the sketch comedy series' Christmas special. Short was a member of the show's cast during the 1984-85 season, and this will mark his third hosting stint.

Joining him as a guest on the show will be Paul McCartney, the former Beatle and still-active rocker. McCartney will serve as musical guest, but he has acted in his three previous visits to the show, including a memorable stint on "The Chris Farley Show."

The week before, on Dec. 8, Jamie Foxx will host.
