SNL vet Will Ferrell returns for his fourth time as host on January 27, with musical guest Chris Stapleton.
Chastain can currently be seen opposite Idris Elba and Kevin in Aaron Sorkin’s drama “Molly’s Game,” which has been getting serious awards season buzz.

Ferrell’s latest comedy, “Daddy’s Home 2,” was released in November. Stapleton will join Ferrell as musical guest for the second time. His most recent album, “From A Room: Volume 2,” was released on Dec. 1. It follows “From A Room: Volume 1,” which won the 2017 CMA for Album of the Year and is nominated for Best Country Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.
As previously announced, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’s” Sam Rockwell will make his hosting debut on January 13, the first new show of 2018. He’ll appear with musical guest Halsey.
