Philadelphia’s Kevin Hart will host Saturday Night Live on Dec. 16, NBC announced Monday.

It will be Hart’s third outing as host and the seventh SNL appearance for musical guest the Foo Fighters, which, according to the network will be tying a record for “most SNL appearances by a rock band.”

Hart, meanwhile, is just two guest-host gigs away from the show’s “Five-Timers Club.”

Not coincidentally, Hart’s latest movie opens Dec. 20.  Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle also stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas.

While we’re waiting, here’s a look at Hart’s Jan. 18, 2015, appearance.
