Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Felicity Jones is set to host Saturday Night Live when it returns to TV on January 14th, after taking a break for the holidays.

The video features a guest appearance by actual Run DMC's Darryl McDaniels as well.

Jones follows last night's hosting stint by Manchester By The Sea's Casey Affleck, whose most hilarious performance last night was playing an average Bostonian Dunkin Donuts customer in a parody Dunkin Donuts commercial.

Saturday Night Live returns on January 14.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
