Eight-time Olympic gold medal winner Michael Phelps will host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live next month.
The first episode of the comedy show's 34th series airs on September 13. It will feature music from Lil Wayne.
Phelps has been the focus of media attention since he broke swimmer Mark Spitz's record for the most gold medals in a single Games.
The Beijing champion follows in the footsteps of skater Nancy Kerrigan and skier Jonny Moseley, who also competed at Olympics and hosted the show.
