With his hands enclosed over his mouth, seated in front of a mirror, actor Sterling K. Brown rehearsed the cold opening for Saturday Night Live, echoing from a chair, “Live from New York it’s Saturday Night Live.”
This is truly a dream come true. I’ve watched @nbcsnl since I was a baby. To finally get to host is one of the more surreal moments of my life, but it’s gonna be awesome. #SKBSNL pic.twitter.com/uSPyxQQ3p2

Sterling announced via Twitter on Tuesday morning that he will be hosting SNL on Sat., March 10 with musical guest James Bay.
The actor received his Masters of Fine Arts from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. When he attended the university, Tisch School of the Arts was just a 19-minute train ride to 30 Rockefeller Plaza where SNL has been taped since 1975.
And now he will be a part of SNL’s 43rd season as the host of episode 15.
