Reminder for “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels: next time you agree to an interview in your office, maybe cover up the top-secret cork board with a list of the season’s upcoming guest hosts on the wall.
Otherwise, a sneaky interviewer like 16-time “SNL” host Alec Baldwin could spill your secrets in his fortnightly public radio podcast.
In the latest episode of his WNYC podcast “Here’s the Thing,” Baldwin reads off Michaels’ board of confirmed hosts. According to the Huffington Post, he indicates that none other than Justin Bieber will take a stab at the dual hosting/musical guest duties, while recent Oscar nominee Jonah Hill will also take a spin as host.
“The biggest names in the business are coming here thirty-something years [after ‘SNL”s debut] to host the show,” Baldwin says. “Ben Stiller, Melissa McCarthy, [who] won the Emmy award, and Katy Perry’s coming and Jimmy Fallon, who’s double-dipping on your payroll, Jonah Hill, and I don’t want to ruin any other names, [but] Bieber’s confirmed, he’s the music and the [host].”
Nothing has been confirmed by NBC beyond February’s guests, which include Channing Tatum and Bon Iver on Feb. 4 and Zooey Deschanel and Karmin on Feb. 11.
