NBC released the new roster of upcoming Saturday Night Live hosts today, and it looks like the show is going with someone old and someone new for its January slate of shows. First up: Molly’s Game star Jessica Chastain will be making her first appearance in Studio 8H on January 20, where she’ll be accompanied by musical guest Troye Sivan, and also (we hope), a whole lot of jokes about Aaron Sorkin dialogue and being confused with Bryce Dallas Howard all the time.


Meanwhile, January 27 will see the return of Will Ferrell to his old sketch comedy stomping grounds, making his fourth hosting appearance on the show, and his (roughly) billionth, overall. Ferrell will be joined by musical guest Chris Stapleton, along with anyone they can round up for the latest Celebrity Jeopardy! sketch.

That’s all a few weeks off, though; this Saturday night will see Sam Rockwell take the stage, with Halsey scheduled as the musical guest.
