Matthew McConaughey hosts SNL

Although Matthew McConaughey has been imitated countless times on Saturday Night Live, it’s been 12 years since he himself last hosted.
Saturday will mark his first return to Studio 8H since 2003, when the Dixie Chicks performed as musical guest and McConaughey had just released How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Since then, he’s left the romcoms behind, and post-McConaissance, he’s taken to more dramatic roles, like Rust Cohle in True Detective and himself in those philosophical Lincoln ads. While he doesn’t have any big movies coming up this holiday season, he’ll next appear in Gus Van Sant’s drama The Sea of Trees, about a man who travels to Japan’s Suicide Forest, and the Civil War drama The Free State of Jones.
