'Saturday Night Live' Sets Kevin Hart to Host
Kevin Hart is heading back to Saturday Night Live.
The show announced during its latest episode that the comedic star will host Jan. 17. It will be the first new episode of the year.
This will mark the Ride Along star's second time hosting. He previously fronted a March 2013 episode, when Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were the musical guests.
Hart, who recently defended himself after Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper referred to him as a "whore" in a leaked email, will host the show on the day after his forthcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer gets released. A musical guest for the episode has not yet been announced.
Hart also stars with SNL alum Will Ferrell in Get Hard, hitting theaters in March.
