Live from Studio 8H, it's Jack Harlow — and David S. Pumpkins!

The rapper, 24, pulled double duty on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, performing as both host and musical guest on the late-night comedy series.

Tom Hanks reprised his iconic Halloween character during one sketch, which saw Harlow and SNL cast members Ego Nwodim and Andrew Dismukes encounter scary silver screen stars from various horror films while on an attraction ride. Mikey Day and former SNL star Bobby Moynihan reprised their roles as Pumpkins' skeleton sidekicks. (Moynihan also dropped by "Weekend Update" as his classic character, Drunk Uncle.)

After coming across the likes of Michael Myers and Annabelle, the group was then brought face to face with Hanks' loveable character, amid loud cheers from the in-studio audience.

Though the riders couldn't quite grasp what exactly David S. Pumpkins was doing among the other horror greats, he kept appearing throughout the ride, before providing a final scare near the end of the sketch.

Elsewhere during the show, Harlow took part in various sketches, including one where he played a frat boy in a Tampon Halloween costume, and another as a participant in an AA meeting who reveals he has the perfect idea for a Pixar movie. (Hanks, 66, made a cameo in the latter sketch.)

Harlow performed twice during the evening — marking his second time as a musical guest on SNL. He previously appeared during a March 2021 episode hosted by Maya Rudolph.

The rapper first performed "Lil Secret" and "First Class" during the beginning half of the show, before later taking the stage once more to sing his track "State Fair" towards the end.
