The Veep actress will follow another HBO star, Peter Dinklage, who will make his hosting debut on Saturday. The week before Louis-Dreyfus' homecoming, Russell Crowe will take the reigns on April 9 with musical guest Margo Price. Nick Jonas will appear as the musical guest for the first time as a solo artist the following week.

This marks Louis-Dreyfus' third time hosting and, surprisingly, Crowe's first. He will next share the big screen with recent SNL host Ryan Gosling in The Nice Guys.

SNL airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
