Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was announced today as the host of NBC’s Saturday Night Live for the fifth time on May 20th.
Johnson will join the “Five-Timers Club,” a list of elite level celebrities that the show itself first started promoting in 1990.
The club list at this point that Johnson will join consists of Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin, Drew Barrymore, Candice Bergen, Chevy Chase, Danny DeVito, Tina Fey, John Goodman, Elliott Gould, Tom Hanks, Buck Henry, Scarlett Johansson, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Paul Simon, Justin Timberlake, and Christopher Walken.
Also noted is that the show itself is changing next month where it will air live nationwide. The West Coast since the inception of the show has gotten a feed to air at 11:30 p.m. local time after the news. However, SNL will move to 8:30 p.m. on the West Coast five weeks before Johnson hosts the show.
The episode that Johnson is hosting will be the season finale.
