Today, NBC confirmed that Jason Momoa, also otherwise known for Game of Thrones, is going to be hosting the upcoming December 8 show. Mumford & Sons, meanwhile, will be serving as the musical guest for the first time. Momoa is set for the biggest publicity blitz of his career for playing the title hero in Aquaman, but we certainly do think that he’s got a great sense of humor and he should find a way to really embrace this. (Our personal dream would be if Emilia Clarke finds a way to actually join him on the show for some sort of Game of Thrones spoof, largely because they’ve kept in touch over the years — Momoa may have only played Drogo for one season, but he absolutely did still have quite the impact.
Meanwhile, the December 15 show (which, presumably, will be the last one this season) will be hosted by none other than Matt Damon, who earlier this season turned up as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Given that Kavanaugh’s time in headlines will likely be over at the time in which Damon comes back, we have a hard time thinking that a reprisal is in the works here; nonetheless, we imagine that the writers are going to come up with some fun material for him.
It is also worth noting that for the upcoming December 15 version of the show that Miley Cyrus will be performing alongside Mark Ronson. Cyrus is someone who’s long been an SNL favorite both as a host and performer; with her background in comedy, it’s fair to assume that she could turn up in a couple of sketches alongside her musical duties. Given that SNL does like to bring in someone with some familiarity with the show for their final Christmas Special, none of this is surprising. Our feeling is that she will probably hit the stage and sing some sort of Christmas song near the end of the show to go along with some of her latest music with Ronson.
