It’s a big week for Benedict Cumberbatch, already the victim of his own Sherlock Honest Trailer, and SNL is making no small item of the Doctor Strange star’s first hosting this weekend. Watch Cumberbatch make a dramatic arrival to SNL in the first promo for the series’ return!

After Tom Hanks set the world alight with David S. Pumpkins, SNL now turns to its first November host in this weekend’s Benedict Cumberbatch. The Doctor Strange star will likely shoot a longer promo later in the week, but for the moment seems awestruck (and profanely terrified) to be making his hosting debut alongside Solange Knowles.

For the moment, SNL has only set Cumberbatch among its November hosts, but may confirm additional stars over the weekend, particularly as the next weeks will see the long-running sketch comedy series airing its first 2016 shows with a new President-Elect.

We’re almost guaranteed to see Cumberbatch reprising his Fifth Estate role as Julian Assange, but check out the first promos above, and stay tuned for more SNL.
