Jon Hamm hosting 'SNL' Halloween show on Oct. 30

jon-hammImage Credit: Michael Tran/FilmMagic.comJon Hamm will host Saturday Night Live for a third time, he announced Thursday during a sitdown with Jimmy Fallon. (Watch it below.) He’s set for the Halloween show on Oct. 30, which is nice for two reasons: The first time he hosted in 2008 was a Halloween show, and he loves New York around that holiday; though he doesn’t see himself playing Superman on the big screen, he would be up for a Superman sketch. “That I could definitely do,” he told Fallon, after addressing the Internet rumors that his name was on a studio shortlist for the Christopher Nolan-produced new Superman. Hamm confirmed what his rep told us earlier this week: “I certainly haven’t been informed of that,” he said. “Unless Superman’s power suddenly was the power of being really old….He’s really good at mall-walking….¬†I may be aged out of that competition.”

Besides a Superhamm sketch, what would you like to see the Mad Men star do this trip to Studio 8H? October’s looking like a good month for the show: Easy A star Emma Stone confirmed that she’ll be hosting SNL Oct. 23 to Fallon on Wednesday,¬†calling it her “biggest dream.” Saturday Night Live returns for its 36th season on Sept. 25 with host Amy Poehler.

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Remember him in the Vincent Price skit? Not how I would think of James Mason, but still hilarious. I honestly don’t think this man has any faults.

    • K

      Did you know that they changed it James Mason right before the sketch went on? He nailed it without any real preparation. He’s the best new host in years! Keep him coming!!!

    • LOL

      The Hammster rocks the party that rocks the house!

  • Brit

    Vincent: Where’s your costume

    James Mason: sorry old boy, old fashion

    Vincent: oh, the costume was too old fashion?

    James Mason: no, I had two old fashions and I couldn’t open the box.

    Listen, Jon Hamm is gorgeous and he’s done great on SNL, but NOBODY hosts three years in a row. That’s unfair.

      Unfair to the competition because of how awesome he is! I was crossing my fingers they would book him again, and lo and behold! So happy!

    • Jenn

      Honestly, I wish their proven great hosts appeared more often (like Martin, Baldwin, Walken, Hanks, Goodman, Timberlake, and Hamm). At least once a year. Who’s it unfair to? January Jones and Michael Phelps? No thanks.

    • Traci

      You don’t know what your talking about! John Goodman hosted once a year for 11 YEARS! He holds the record for most seasons in a row.

      • Mike

        DA BEARS!!!

  • tracy bluth

    “Mall walking”? Ugh he’s perfect! And I love Brian Williams too!

  • Via

    Oh this is great aaaaand I didn’t know Emma Stone would be hosting also so yeah, October is looking good. Unless they decide to bring back January Jones.

    • tracy bluth

      I was hoping she’d be banned from ever hosting again, but now that she’s dating Jason Sudeikis….
      As Eloise Hawking would say, God help us all.

  • Mole

    Dammit, now I can’t get “Hamm and Buble” out of my head…

    • Sara

      I saved that clip in my PC to watch whenever I feel like (read almost daily)

    • Cris

      Remember, if you can find a better pork and champagne restaurant … KEEP IT TO YOURSELF!

  • Elizabeth

    As far as all-time record on hosting, I think Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin should start worrying…

    • Elizabeth

      And now they have to have Brian Williams on in a guest spot on Jon’s show just from that clip!

    • tracy bluth

      Can you imagine the skits between Baldwin, Martin, and Hamm?

  • orville

    The new season is looking up with some really excellent hosts so far. I hope they keep it up for the rest of the season and that the musical guests are just as great.

    • S.O.

      unfortunately Katy Perry is musical guest on the season premiere.

  • Dory

    Jon Hamm is awesome.

  • Adictisima
