Taraji P. Henson will be hosting SNL on Saturday and according to her Empire co-star, Jussie Smollett, she will do “phenomenally.”
“To me Taraji is the perfect example of someone that is as beautiful as they are funny and talented,” Smollett told HipHollywood during the finalist announcements for the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. “There’s pretty much nothing she can’t do and I say that not just because she is a friend, but because it’s really real.”
He added, “I feel like she’s the love child of Samuel L. Jackson and Bette Davis or something. She is just crazy. She is going to smash it. They ain’t ready.”
Henson will make her SNL hosting debut this weekend alongside musical guest, Mumford & Sons.
