Adding more great news to what has already been a red letter year for her, Margot Robbie has been announced as the guest host of the season premiere of the new ‘Saturday Night Live’ season when it returns next month.

Season 42 of ‘SNL’ begins on October 1st on NBC, with the Australian actress the guest host of the inaugural episode. Robbie has garnered praise in what has been a breakout year for her, as she’s enjoyed high profile roles in Suicide Squad and The Legend of Tarzan in 2016, in addition to roles in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, The Big Short and The Wolf of Wall Street earlier in her career.
