Jason Momoa to Host Saturday Night Live in December

Matt Damon and Claire Foy will also host

Malcolm Venable

Saturday Night Liveis going into December with its guns fully out, bringing in heavyweight talents for three back-to-back episodes in the last month of 2018.

Claire Foy, who played The Crown's enchanting queen in the first two seasons and who's promoting two movies out now, First Man and The Girl in the Spider's Web -- will kick things off when she hosts on Dec. 1. Anderson.Paak, the sonically adventurous rapper whose latest album Oxnard was released this month, will make his first appearance as musical guest that week.

Aquaman himself Jason Momoa swims in to host on Dec. 8 for the first time, with the folk-rock band Mumford & Sons returning for their third time as musical guest, playing tracks from their new album Delta, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Matt Damon returns to host for a second time on Dec. 15. And though he's not quite as young and hip as the the hosts from the preceding weeks, Damon -- who killed it on SNL earlier this season when he played Brett Kavanaugh -- is still, well, Oscar winner Matt Damon. And since the musical guests for the week will be Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, SNL will keep its cool kids cred firmly intact for the month.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC.
