The first will air December 2nd and be hosted by actress Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn), with U2 as the musical guest.

As Kevin Hart famously once said, "It's about to go down!" This will be Ronan's hosting debut on SNL as well as a great opportunity for her to plug her acclaimed new movie Lady Bird.

The hosts will have some formidable musical accompaniment. too. James Franco, who is promoting his new film "The Disaster Artist", will serve as host again.

Hart has been the host of Saturday Night Live twice before, but will arrive this time in order to promote Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which hits theaters on December 20. SZA will take the stage as the musical guest.

Finally, Kevin Hart is returning to host Saturday Night Live for what will be the Christmas episode of the season on December 16. Dave Grohl and his bandmates have consistently appeared in sketches whenever they're the musical guest on the show, so hopefully that tradition continues with this episode as well.
