Two time Oscar winning actor, Tom Hanks will be hosting Saturday Night Live (SNL) for the ninth time in his career. On the other hand, mother monster Lady Gaga will be the musical guest and this has generated a lot of hype among fans across the world.
Tom Hanks is one of those exceptional actors who achieved fame for his talent. He is not your average hero, with a hunky body. Rather, he is known to play the average Joe, which makes his performances relatable to viewers which made quite a few of his films to feature among the biggest box office draws of all time.
So far, all of Hank's appearances on SNL have been well received by fans, critics and colleagues alike. It has always been interesting to see him doing comedy skits, because he is not a comedian, neither does he have a funny facial feature. But Hanks has the heavy acting chops which is arguable the sharpest, as a matter of fact.
Apart from of the host, the musical guest is expected to be a treat to watch as well. After all, it's Lady Gaga. Whether you like her or not, you can't deny that she is interesting to watch. Her songs usually have heavy imagery. She also has the knack for eccentric dresses and jewellery. Inspired by the musical theatrics of David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, she has trademarked her own style.
The report of Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga, appearing in the same show together, is perhaps the most hyped up appearances for SNL in a very long time. The episode is scheduled to air on October 22.
