Over the last 40+ years, Saturday Night Live has had some amazing talent to grace it’s stage and some very well loved co-host too, and actress Margot Robbie is no exception.
On Friday (September 23), SNL has announced that Robbie will host their 42nd season premiere set to debut live on October 1st. Robbie, who has had an amazing year after starring in two major films ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘Tarzan’, is most well known as the the actress who played Leonardo DiCaprio‘s wife in the major motion film, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’. Robbie who’s also played in the movie ‘The Big Short’, is no stranger to the big screen – but what about Prime time television? Robbie’s roles on the big screen roles have all been very dramatic, to say the least, so it’ll be very nice to see her let her hair down on the comedy circuit.
According to the NY Daily News, the 26-year-old Australian actress was one of the most frequently requested hosts when ‘SNL’ openly questioned the public for suggestions. After tallying results, SNL took to Twitter to announce that they have given fans their long time wish.

SNL, who recently lost cast members Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah, are coming into the new premiere season with a big bang! This season, the show has announced the addition of three new players joining the cast Alex Moffat, Melissa Villasenor and Mikey Day; in addition to two new head writers. With the show making major changes and with Robbie as the opener and musical guest The Weeknd, who just dropped his first single ‘Starboy’ on Tuesday as the musical guest; these strategic moves are proving that SNL is definitely headed for a really good season. Hopefully, SNL will have continued success for many more years to come.
You can catch Robbie and The Weeknd on SNL October 1st on NBC.
