Leslie Jones is one lucky lady!

The Saturday Night Live performer gets up close and personal with Chris Hemsworth in her first promo for the NBC sketch comedy series ahead of Saturday's episode. The show also marks a first for the Australian Thor star and regulation hottie—he is making his debut as guest host.

The video contains three segments and was posted on SNL's YouTube page on Thursday. Jones is seen caressing the actor's shoulder, back and neck while standing beside him and Zac Brown Band, who will perform on the episode.

"Man, I feel like anything I say right now is gonna get me in trouble with HR," she later says, pressing her cheek against Hemsworth's.

Jones, a standup comedienne from Los Angeles, joined SNL as a writer last year. She made her onscreen debut on the show as a commentator on Weekend Update, where she has since been featured several times, and stirred controversy with a slavery joke she has told on stage during her standup comedy shows for years.

In October, she was promoted to a featured player on SNL. She has since starred in many skits and pre-taped segments, including last week's "Say What You Want to SaySara Bareilles' "Brave" parody with Dakota Johnsonand guest host, Whiplash star and now-Oscar winner J.K. Simmons' opening monologue, during which she showed him that no one can push Leslie Jones around.

Last year, she became on one of actresses cast in a reboot of the classic 1984 film Ghostbusters. At an after party for SNL's 40th Anniversary Special last month, she shared on her Twitter page a photo of herself with her movie co-stars Kate McKinnon, a current SNL performer, former cast member and Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wiig and actress Melissa McCarthy.

McKinnon appears in a previously released SNL promo with Hemsworth, which shows her also finding an excuse to touch him and attempting to parody with him the iconic finale dance from the 1987 cult hit Dirty Dancing.

Hemsworth's SNL hosting debut comes less than two months before the May 1 premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, in which he reprises his role as Thor. A third trailer for the anticipated Marvel superhero ensemble film was released this week and debuts a new character.

As for Jones, while she lusts for Hemsworth onscreen, her heart belongs to another.
