A source close to "Saturday Night Live" has told The Huffington Post that Jonah Hill will host the March 10 episode of the NBC show. Previously, Alec Baldwin, a frequent "SNL" host himself, had mentioned Hill as an upcoming host during an interview with Lorne Michaels on Baldwin's podcast, "Here's the Thing."
The episode will be Hill's second time hosting "SNL." This time around, he'll be promoting his upcoming film, an adaptation of '80s TV show "21 Jump Street"; he wrote and co-starred in the new movie. Hill just received an Academy Award nomination for his supporting turn in the sports drama "Moneyball" and starred in this summer's comedy "The Sitter."
Hill, 28, has also made headlines for losing more than 40 pounds in under a year.
No musical guest has been announced for the March 10 show. Channing Tatum and Zooey Deschanel will host the Feb. 4 and 11 episodes of the show, respectively, with musical guests Bon Iver and Karmin.
Baldwin also indicated that pop star Justin Bieber would appear on the show this season. However, the source said that Bieber's appearance is not confirmed.
