NEW YORK (AP) – Saturday Night Live is getting some more cowbell. Will Ferrell will host the show May 14, his first appearance since leaving SNL in 2002 after seven seasons as a cast member, NBC announced Tuesday. Queens of the Stone Age will be the musical guest.
Ferrell became one of the stars of the sketch comedy show with skits such as Craig the Spartan cheerleader, an impression of U.S. President George W. Bush and the cowbell-playing member of Blue Oyster Cult.
The 37-year-old actor stars in the soccer-dad comedy Kicking & Screaming, which will be in theatres May 13.
He also co-stars with Nicole Kidman in the upcoming Bewitched, an adaptation of the classic TV show, directed by Nora Ephron.
