-- NEW YORK (September 20, 2006) — Dane Cook and The Killers will help “Saturday Night Live” continue its extraordinary run, when the show returns for its 32nd season on September 30.
This will be the second hosting stint for Cook, who will soon be seen on the big screen opposite Jessica Simpson in the comedy “Employee of the Month.”
Also returning to “SNL” are The Killers, performing from their eagerly awaited sophomore release “Sam’s Town.” The new album is the follow-up to the band’s five million-selling debut “Hot Fuss,” which garnered four hit singles and seven Grammy nominations. Named “Band of the Year” by Spin magazine in 2004, the Killers’ record was the longest-running rock record to remain in the Top 50 for the same year and their new single “When You Were Young” is already Top Five at alternative radio and one of the most played videos on MTV.
Returning to the “SNL” cast are Fred Armisen, Will Forte, Bill Hader, Darrell Hammond, Seth Meyers, Maya Rudolph, Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson and Kristen Wiig.
Amy Poehler will return to the “Weekend Update” desk with a new partner to be announced later.
