Elba is also going to Netflix, as he heads up the cast of the streamer’s new comedy series Turn Up Charlie. The show sees Elba playing a DJ who becomes a reluctant manny to his famous best friend’s daughter.
A five-time Emmy nominee, Elba’s credits include Luther, The Wire, and the Thor and Avengers films, among others. Khalid has a new album dropping in April.
In the years since its debut in 1975, Saturday Night Live has become a television institution, and hosting the show has become something of a rite of passage for actors and comedians.
