AceShowbiz - "Killing Eve" star Sandra Oh is heading to "Saturday Night Live"! The queen of awards season has been tapped to make her first appearance on the long-running NBC comedy as she will host the show on March 30.
Her episode will arrive on the weekend before her BBC America series premieres its season 2 on April 7. The "Grey's Anatomy" alum is not the only one who will make her debut in the March 30 broadcast as Australian rock band Tame Impala is set to serve as the musical guest on the show for the first time.
"Mark. Your. Calendars. @IamSandraOh @tameimpala," the official Twitter account of "SNL" tweeted.
The gig arrives after Sandra snagged throphies at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards and the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards for best actress in a drama series, thanks to her performance on "Killing Eve". Also for the role as desk-bound MI5 Eve Polastri, she earned a nomination at the Primetime Emmy Awards and Television Critics Association Awards among others.

"11 yr old me woulda stood in the rain outside 30 rock for this too. Queen Sandra Oh !!" so the "Crazy Rich Asians" actress wrote on the micro-blogging site.
