Kerry Washington to host 'Saturday Night Live'

Think SNL has diversity problems? Never fear! Next month, the sketch show will welcome a fixer who’s sure to set things on the right track: Scandal‘s cool, collected, white-hat-wearing Olivia Pope, a.k.a. Emmy-nominated actress Kerry Washington.

NBC announced today that Washington will host the sketch show for the first time on Nov. 2. She’ll be joined by SNL musical vet Eminem, who will be making his sixth appearance on the show. The rapper’s next album, MMLP2, drops Nov. 5.

Norton’s musical guest will be fellow SNL first-timer Janelle Monáe, whose second studio album The Electric Lady dropped Sept. 10.
