Margot Robbie to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’ Season Premiere

Margot Robbie (“Suicide Squad”) will host the 42nd season premiere of “Saturday Night Life” alongside musical guest the Weeknd, NBC announced on Thursday.

The Australian actress was most recently seen as Harley Quinn in the summer blockbuster “Suicide Squad,” also starring Will Smith and Jared Leto. Robbie has also been in films such as “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Her upcoming projects include starring in the film adaption of Matt Ruff’s novel “Bad Monkeys,” as well as lending her voice for the Dreamworks animated film “Larrikins,” scheduled for a 2018 release.

Two-time Grammy Award winner and Oscar nominee the Weeknd will return as musical guest after first appearing on the show in March 2016. His upcoming album, “Starboy,” is scheduled to be released Nov. 25.

Earlier this month, NBC announced that three new cast members — Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, and Melissa Villaseñor — were slated to join the variety series’ upcoming season. Day, Moffat, and Villaseñor will take the places of former cast members Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky.

The 42nd season premiere of “SNL” will air Saturday, Oct. 1 at 11:30 p.m. “SNL” is produced in association with Broadway Video, and created and executive produced by Lorne Michaels.
