TV’s erstwhile Michael Scott is making a return visit to Studio 8H.
This is Carell’s third time hosting SNL, following stints in October 2005 and again in May 2008.
The former Office star is currently promoting the acclaimed indie film Beautiful Boy. He’ll appear in two more movies before years’ end — the Dick Cheney biopic Vice (as former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld) and Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen. On the TV side, he is attached to star opposite Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon in the Apple’s as-yet-untitled morning-show drama.
As previously reported, Ray Donovan star Liev Schreiber is set to host SNL this Saturday, Nov. 10, with musical guest Lil’ Wayne.
