Elizabeth Banks to host SNL

Elizabeth Banks will host 'Saturday Night Live' on November 14.

The 'Pitch Perfect 2' director first hinted at the news on her Twitter page, writing: "Recently heard one of my dreams is coming true. Can you guess what it is?"

She then added: "I'm hosting @snl November 14!! So excited - @disclosure is a musical guest! You guys ready? #SNL."

Disclosure will be the musical guest, and have asked Sam Smith and Lorde to join them.

They tweeted: "@ElizabethBanks @nbcsnl We're ready... and we're bringing some friends! @lordemusic @samsmithworld letsgoooo!"

Elizabeth will follow in the footsteps of stars including Amy Schumer and Tracy Morgan, who have both hosted this season.

The 'Trainwreck' actress took aim at the Kardashians in her opening monologue, lambasting them for their obsession with their looks and calling them bad role models.

Speaking about the need to have good role models for young women, she said: "We have to be a role model for these little girls, because who do they have? All they have really is the Kardashians. Is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women who take faces they were born with as a light suggestion?"

And '30 Rock' star Tracy returned to the show for the first time since being involved in a serious car accident last year, in which he suffered a traumatic brain injury and broken leg, and joked about concerns he suffered brain damage.
