Before he bids farewell to the Bond franchise, Daniel Craig will once again get to show off his comedy shops on Saturday Night Live.
The British actor has been confirmed as guest host of the iconic sketch show on March 7, around a month before his final Bond film, No Time to Die, arrives in theaters. He’ll be joined on the episode by musical guest The Weeknd.
Craig previously appeared on SNL back in 2012 when he was promoting his second Bond movie, Skyfall. He portrayed various characters including a construction worker who couldn’t quite get the hang of catcalling. You can check out that sketch below.
Craig’s final outing as 007, No Time to Die is set to open in U.S. theaters on April 8, 2020, five days after its U.K. release. In November, Craig reiterated the fact that he is “done” with the Bond franchise, joking that now he no longer needs to maintain his Bond physique, he can enjoy a diet of Guinness and “maybe some solids occasionally.”
However, Craig famously said in 2015 that he’d “rather slash my wrists” than make another Bond movie, but then signed up for No Time to Die, so some fans might still be hoping he has another change of heart.
Rami Malek is playing the main villain who’ll cause trouble for Craig’s Bond in No Time to Die, while franchise faves Andrew Scott, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Whishaw are all back for the 25th installment.
Fleabag creator and Killing Eve executive producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who contributed to the script, has discussed her “spicy additions” to the franchise – which rumors suggest could include introducing (in a way) the first ever female 007.
