Studio 8H, prepare to be handled.
Scandal's fierce leading lady Kerry Washington will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 2, NBC announced today. This will be her first time hosting the sketch comedy series.
Joining her as the musical guest is Eminem, making his sixth appearance on the show. His new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 comes out Nov. 5.
The announcement that the ABC star is hosting SNL is very timely, considering that this week castmember Keenan Thompson talked to TVGuide.com about the lack of diversity on the show, blaming the fact there are no qualified black female comedians out there.
