It was announced during tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live that The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence will helm an episode in January.
She’ll host on January 19 and the musical guest that night will be The Lumineers. Stars typically appear on SNL to promote their latest project, and Lawrence will likely use the appearance as a means to push Silver Linings Playbook. The film also stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.
Filming on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will wrap by the end of December, so maybe we’ll get a Katniss skit while it’s still fresh in her mind!
The Lumineers will be promoting their self-titled album and we’re sure they’ll play the hit song “Ho Hey.” The band is currently on a United States tour.
We picked Jennifer Lawrence as one of our top 10 people who should host SNL earlier this year. We also included other such stars as New Girl‘s Max Greenfield and Robert Downey Jr., who will be starring in Iron Man 3 later this year.
We’ll have a recap up of tonight’s Saturday Night Live later. The show, hosted by Martin Short, opened with a chilling performance of “Silent Night” by the New York City Children’s Chorus who sang the holiday song in tribute to those tragically killed in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.
