Ryan Gosling Makes His Dramatic Return to 'SNL' in First Promo
Ryan Gosling is making his triumphant return to host Saturday Night Live when the show begins its new season this weekend.
"All my life, I knew I could host SNL," the actor narrates in a new promo clip (below) for the season opener, which will also feature Jay Z as the musical guest.
Gosling says that although his December 2015 first-time hosting duties were "magical," the audience only saw part of him. "This time I'm going to give the world my soul — I'm gonna give them something they'll never, ever forget," he promises, before attempting (unsuccessfully) to get past network security.
SNL will continue last year's tradition of airing live coast-to-coast starting at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT on NBC.
