Sets February Guests
By Sean Bradley,
"Saturday Night Live"
is relying on an even mix of first timers and old pros to headline
the show throughout the month of February, according to a source
at the show.
The fun will begin February 8,
when Matthew McConaughey and Dixie Chicks are both scheduled
to make their debuts. McConaughey's latest film, the romantic
comedy "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," hits theaters
that weekend. Dixie Chicks latest album, "Home," is
up for Album of the Year at this year's Grammy awards.
"Alias" star Jennifer
Garner is set to take on hosting duties the next weekend, February
15, with musical guest Beck back for a fourth time. Garner co-stars
with Ben Affleck in the action film "Daredevil," opening
that weekend. Beck's album "Sea Change" is up for Best
Alternative Music Album at the Grammys.
The month is slated to end with
a bang, as Christopher Walken returns for a sixth time as host,
alongside the music of Foo Fighters, Grammy nominated for their
rock song "All My Life."
All guests are subject to change
until confirmed by NBC.
