THE DEADLINE TEAM
Deadline.comFebruary 21, 2013

Justin Timberlake will make his fifth appearance as host on Saturday Night Live on March 9, pulling double-duty as musical guest. It comes 10 days before his latest album drops. That makes Timberlake a member of SNL‘s Five-Timers Club, which has grown in ranks since that hilarious 1990 skit in which Tom Hanks hosted for a fifth time and was ushered into a secret back-room clubhouse with fellow five-timers Elliott Gould, Paul Simon, Steve Martin in smoking jackets and Jon Lovitz making muffins as the butler (check out the video below — maybe they’ll update it for Timberlake, who already has won two Emmys for his hosting). Meanwhile, the NBC also show confirmed actor-comedian Kevin Hart will host March 2 with musical guest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
