It was just announced that Will Ferrell will return to Studio 8H on May 12 to host Saturday Night Live for the first time since 2009!

Historically SNL pretty much lets Will take the wheel as host (as they should) and try out any character that comes to mind.

Personally, I'm praying that fans get some sort of Anchorman homage -- whether it's in the monologue or Weekend Update. But there are also a whole treasure trove of characters Will could resurrect when he hits the stage. Here are the Top 5 famous Ferrell folks I'm hoping to see on May 12!

1. Alex Trebek
With ace impressionists of ludicrous stars (Jay Pharoah's Will Smith, Vanessa Bayer's Miley Cyrus, Nasim Pedrad's Kim Kardashian) in the cast, Will could have a field day with a new round of Celebrity Jeopardy!

2. James Lipton
For the same reasons listed above.

3. George W. Bush
Am dying to know what the ex-president has to say about the current political climate. Ya know, beyond, "It's chilly."

4. Harry Caray
Hey! Let me ask you a question, why shouldn't Will resurrect the man with a thousand thoughts too many?


5. Hot Tub Lovers
Because there's nothing better than watching the always stoic actor crack up on camera, and this is the sketch he can never seem to get through in one piece. Also, Dratch Cameo Alert!

Although I won't complain if the Cheerleaders (Cheri Oteri Cameo Alert!), Robert Goulet or Terry Gantner pop up either!
