Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake Pair for “Saturday Night Live” Episode

They have become one of late night’s most illustrious duos, and next month, they bring their combined skillsets to “Saturday Night Live.”

NBC announced Thursday that the December 21 show, the last “SNL” of 2013, will feature Jimmy Fallon as host and Justin Timberlake as musical guest. Fallon, a former cast member, returns for his second hosting gig, while Timberlake performs for the fifth time as a musical guest.

Given their comedic chemistry, it seems inevitable that Timberlake will also get involved in some of the sketches.

NBC’s announcement also contained two other “Saturday Night Live” lineups. Paul Rudd will host the December 7 episode with musical guest One Direction, while John Goodman and Kings of Leon perform in those respective roles on December 14.
