Emma Stone is set to take the stage as the host of "Saturday Night Live" on December 2, with indie folk sensation Noah Kahan joining her as the musical guest. Stone, renowned for her dynamic acting skills, is currently in the spotlight for her lead role in Showtime’s “The Curse”.

In this unique series, she portrays a home improvement show host who, alongside her husband (played by Nathan Fielder), falls under a child's curse. Additionally, Stone is generating buzz with her performance in “Poor Things,” a darkly comedic take on the Frankenstein tale directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, where she plays Bella, a woman resurrected by a mad scientist.

Noah Kahan, whose musical journey has captivated the indie folk scene, recently celebrated a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, adding an exciting edge to his SNL appearance.

In other SNL news, Jason Momoa graced the show’s stage ahead of the release of his upcoming film, “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” set to make a splash in theaters on December 22.

The sequel to the 2018 blockbuster, which amassed over $1 billion globally, marks Momoa's second time hosting SNL, his first being in 2018 with musical guests Mumford and Sons. Momoa's presence extends beyond the aquatic realm, having portrayed the vibrant antagonist Dante Reyes in “Fast X” and briefly appearing in “The Flash”.

This season, "Saturday Night Live" has seen a diverse array of hosts including Pete Davidson, Bad Bunny, Nate Bargatze, and Timothee Chalamet, with performances from musical talents such as Ice Spice, the Foo Fighters, and Boygenius.
