December 2018 will be a month to remember for Jason Momoa. Not only will his highly-anticipated Warner Bros and DC film Aquaman be splashing down into theaters on the 21st, but Momoa will have the honor of hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live for the first time ever!
Momoa’s episode of SNL will air on December 8th and it will be his first time gracing the stage of the iconic studio 8H. It will be refreshing to see Momoa break out of his typically dramatic, warrior-like roles and tackle some sketch comedy with the cast of SNL.
Joining Momoa on December 8th is musical guests Mumford and Sons who will be making their third appearance on the show while promoting their brand new album Delta. Mumford and Sons’ new album debuted this week at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts and is the band’s third consecutive chart-topping debut.
Aquaman is easily one of the most highly-anticipated films of 2018. Momoa reprises his role in the DC Universe as Arthur Curry (aka. Aquaman, half-human, half-Atlantean and King of the Seven Seas, ruler of Atlantis). The film also stars Amber Heard (as Mera), Patrick Wilson (as the villainous Orm/Ocean Master), Temuera Morrison (as Tom Curry), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (as Black Manta), Nicole Kidman (as Queen Atlanna), Dolph Lundgren (as King Nereus) and Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe (as Nuidis Vulko).
Aquaman is directed by James Wan. Peter Safran is producing along with Zack and Deborah Snyder, Rob Cowan, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Rounding out the rest of December’s hosting duties for SNL is The Crown and The Girl in the Spider’s Web star Claire Foy. Foy will host on December 1st with musical guest Anderson .Paak. Both are also making their SNL debuts. Finally, Matt Damon will be returning to SNL on December 15th for his second time hosting and will do so alongside musical guest Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus.
