Chris Pratt will kick off Saturday Night Live's 40th season when he hosts the Sept. 27 premiere with musical guest Ariana Grande, NBC announced Wednesday.

It will be the Guardians of the Galaxy star's first time hosting the show, and Grande will also be making her debut. Perhaps Pratt will join her for a rap? And might Amy Poehler drop by to support her Parks and Recreation buddy?
