Tina Fey + Amy Poehler, Conceivably Joined at Hip, To Host ‘SNL’ Together
In an act that could be considered a mea culpa for inviting Donald Trump to host—a choice that amounted to actual protests outside of Rockefeller Center—Saturday Night Live has invited two of its most famous and beloved exports back for 2015's final show...TOGETHER.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, whose Sisters will hit theaters next month, are slated to hit Studio 8H on on December 19, the show announced today. Bruce Springsteen will serve as the episode's musical guest, while Ryan Gosling and Leon Bridges will join forces for the December 5 episode and Chris Hemsworth and Chance The Rapper are scheduled for December 12.
Fey and Poehler, who hosted Weekend Update together from 2004 to 2006, have each hosted SNL independently before: Fey, four times and Poehler once. They also starred together in 2008's Baby Mama and co-hosted The Golden Globes Awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014. They even played the very same character once —in a live episode of 30 Rock, Poehler was featured as a 16-year-old version of Tina Fey's Liz Lemon, who spent her birthday eating cheesesteaks and watching telethons in her basement.
The episode will mark the first time two people have split host duties since SNL featured Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey together in a Season 29 episode in 2004.
