Howard Stern and Robin “House Negro” Quivers can shut it now: We heard on BOSSIP Twitter that Gabourey Sidibe is set to host SNL. Pop the top for more on the story.
Ms. Sidibe is going to be hosting an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live! “It literally just happened,” a source said of the deal.
No word on an exact date yet.
SNL is not—we repeat, not—the only gig Sidibe has scored since her feature film debut. She has a recurring role on Showtime’s upcoming The Big C, about a teacher (Laura Linney) living with cancer. Sidibe plays one of her sassy students. The series, which is set to premiere in August, also costars Oliver Platt.
