Henson on a recent episode of Empire

Get ready to watch Cookie read Saturday Night Live as Empire star Taraji P. Henson and the Birdman-buoyed Michael Keaton will host upcoming episodes of the long-running late night sketch show. Henson will appear on the SNL stage for the first time even in the episode airing April 11, alongside decidedly un-Empire friendly musical guests Mumford And Sons. Keaton’s episode will air April 4 and feature musical guest and Scooter Braun protégé Carly Rae Jepsen, who’s still feverishly trying to remind people that she’s not just the “Call Me Maybe” girl. Keaton has hosted SNL twice before, and this will be Mumford And Sons’ second time on the show.

Furious 7 star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosts this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, which will mark British singer-songwriter George Ezra’s show debut.
