Lin-Manuel Miranda is hosting Saturday Night Live next week

Written by

The room where it happens is going to be Studio 8H. It was announced this morning that Hamilton star and writer Lin-Manuel Miranda will be hosting Saturday Night Live’s second episode on October 8. The musical guest will be Twenty One Pilots, and we already have so many ideas for him.

Will he bring it on down to Hamiltonville? Will there be Lonely Island mashup of “Dick in a Box” and ”My Shot”? Will he be inspired by his favorite SNL episode, 1990’s Fred Savage with Technotronic? Will he say whether this year’s election will be crazier than the election of 1800?

Ugh, there are too many possibilities! Can he just stay on for the whole season as a replacement for everyone leaving, please?
