“The Last of Us” Star Pedro Pascal Will Host “Saturday Night Live” in February

While HBO’s “The Last of Us” continues to be a smash hit ratings success – Season 2 is all but guaranteed! – we’ve learned today that star Pedro Pascal is coming to “Saturday Night Live.”

For the first time ever, Pascal will host “SNL” on Saturday, February 4!

The musical guest joining Pascal for the episode will be Coldplay.

We can probably expect to see Pedro Pascal poke fun at “The Last of Us” with a spoof sketch, and it’s probably also safe to expect a sketch tied to Pascal’s role in “The Mandalorian.”

Episode 3 of “The Last of Us,” meanwhile, comes to HBO and HBO Max on January 29.

HBO’s “The Last of Us” takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

Pedro Pascal (“The Mandalorian”) is starring in the series as Joel and Bella Ramsey (“Game of Thrones”) is playing Ellie. Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate) is playing Tommy, the brother of Pascal’s Joel. Storm ReidAnna TorvJeffrey Pierce, Nick Offerman, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett and Con O’Neil will also star in the series.

Craig Mazin (“Chernobyl”) developed the series for HBO, and worked directly alongside Neil Druckmann to write and executive produce the small screen adaptation.
