I think the cast is going to stay mostly the same. They might add a new featured player or two.

Kim K in episode 2 yuk.


They should have had Sudekis as the week 1 host since he has all the buzz now and not sure why Owen Wilson was chosen since he has no movies coming out.

To quote Morgan Freeman in Seven: For the first time ever, you and I are in total agreement.

The French Dispatch.

I seem to recall reading somewhere that Lorne wants to keep the cast as stable as possible leading up to the 50th anniversary.

Which wouldn't necessarily preclude people like Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, or Pete Davidson who have outside prospects and opportunities from bolting, but I don't think Lorne will shake up the cast much and try to appease the ones who are already there.

So three more years of Kyle Mooney and Bowen Yang.

Yeah, it's a fallow period for Disney + so I am sure they would appreciate the promo material for those that haven't watched it yet.

Season Opening hosts aren't the biggest deal the way Thanksgiving, Christmas and Season Finales are.
Woody Harrelson, Awkwafina, Gal Godot, Margot Robbie and Miley Cyrus have all been recent Episode 1 hosts. Names, sure, but not huge deals.

I'm pretty tolerant when it comes to questionable hosts, but I draw the line at a fucking Kardashian. Will never give one of hose biotches a second of my time.

Gal Gadot and Awkwafina were hosts of the second episodes of the season. The respective episode 1 hosts were Ryan Gosling and Adam Driver.

Loki still has some buzz, so I'm guessing that's why.

What world do you live in where Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and Hannah Montana are not giant pop culture figures? (not being sarcastic)

I agree and he is kind of a has-been and not as big as he was in the early 2000's.

He has not been in a hit since 2011.

The French Dispatch is a ensemble and he is not the driving force in that movie.

Usually they get somebody with some buzz or a emerging star for the premiere and Sudekis is established but he has a hot show which won several Emmys which would have been a better choice.

Not to piss off a bunch of this forum, but Yang being Asian and gay probably means heís there as long as he wants to be.

I donít think heís very funny at all. Mooney is awful too.

I don't know about that, but his inexplicable Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series while still being a Featured Player pretty much guaranteed his inclusion into the principle cast and a long stay.

Owen Wilson starred in one of the biggest pop culture properties of the summer.
And keep in mind that whoever they get has to commit to spending the week in NYC for the show. A lot of people already have jobs.

Daniel Craig hosted in March 2020 to promote a movie that opens in October 2021, so that's certainly possible.

Inexplicable is right. One of the biggest Emmy nomination jokes in quite some time.
