“The Last Of Us” Star Pedro Pascal Hosting “Saturday Night Live” This Weekend

It’s Pedro Pascal’s world, and we’re just living in it. And you know what? We’re okay with that!

The longtime stellar performer, the guy who stole Game of Thrones season four as Oberyn Martell, the fella who was tremendous as DEA agent Javier Peña in Narcos, the gent who plays the bounty hunter Din Djarin and takes care of The Child in The Mandalorian, and finally, the man who currently stars as rugged survivor Joel in the best new series on TV, HBO’s The Last Of Usis hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend for the first time. He’ll be joined by Cold Play, who, it turns out, is not performing on the show for the first time.

SNL revealed a promo for the upcoming episode, with Pascal following last weekend’s host Michael B. Jordan. How much fun with the SNL scribes have with the fact that he’s currently starring in two of the biggest shows on TV in the zombie drama The Last of Us and the Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian? You have to think that former SNL cast member Kyle Mooney will return to reprise his hysterical take on Baby Yoda. And what mischief might they make with the fungi-induced plague that turns people into zombies in The Last Of Us?

We can’t way to see what SNL has cooked up for Pascal’s episode, and we’re enjoying this Pascal-centered universe we’re living in.

Check out the promo for his Saturday Night Live debut below:
