Elon Musk, the eccentric and controversial CEO of SpaceX and self-proclaimed “Technoking” of Tesla, will host Saturday Night Live in two weeks, NBC announced Saturday.
Musk will host the May 8 episode of SNL, which is nearing the end of its 46th season.
The entrepreneur will appear alongside musical guest Miley Cyrus, who is making her sixth appearance on the show, according to an NBC press release.
Musk has attracted lots of attention this week after SpaceX launched a manned capsule to the International Space Station, its first mission flown with reused equipment.
Musk is no stranger to the big and small screen, having made cameo appearances in The Simpsons, South Park, Iron Man 2 and The Big Bang Theory, leveraging his celebrity-level following and bombastic reputation. He also often courts controversy. In 2018, his repeated offers to help rescue kids stuck in a cave in Thailand devolved into a spat with a rescue diver whom Musk baselessly called a “pedo guy,” and Musk has spent the last year opining about the coronavirus, sometimes downplaying the virus’ severity or making inaccurate predictions.
