On Gear Live: Apple Changes the Mac Forever, iOS 14, and more w/ Guest Mark Gurman!

Mick JaggerMick Jagger is set to host the season finale of Saturday Night Live.

The Rolling Stones rocker - who has appeared on the comedy sketch show twice as a musical guest - will take charge on May 19 where he is expected to participate in a number of skits with series regulars and perform live in the studio.

Mick's appearance will follow New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Rihanna on Saturday, and Will Ferrell with musical guest Usher on May 12. It will also coincide with the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones, which was founded in 1962.

This is a busy year for Mick as Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood was recently overheard saying the band were planning to get together to "play around with some ideas in the studio" after the lead singer and guitarist Keith Richards finally ended their long running feud earlier this year, in time for them to tour next year. Their relationship became acrimonious when Keith made claims his bandmate had a small penis in his autobiography .

Tom Hanks and Jonah Hill on last week's SNL

Jonah Hill was put in his place by Tom Hanks during Saturday Night Live over the weekend. The Moneyball actor hosted the NBC show on Saturday, and his monologue started with him talking about how proud he was to have been nominated for an Academy Award last month, despite losing out to silent film The Artist.

"It's been a great year for me. I was in a film I am extremely proud of. Even though The Artist won best picture, I still think Moneyball was one of this year's best talkies," he said.

He then went to a pre-taped routine about his week behind the scenes, which shows him telling the SNL cast to follow his lead because he's an "Oscar nominee."

Lindsay Lohan on SNL

Lindsay Lohan poked fun at her troubled personal life when she hosted Saturday Night Live last weekend.

The Mean Girls actress - who has endured several stints in rehab and a string of legal problems in recent years - kicked off the show by referring to her stint under house arrest in the opening monologue. "Wait, so the alarm goes off if I leave the stage?" she joked.

Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wiig also mocked the guest host, giving her a hug that turned into a body search for illicit substances, quipping "she's clean" at the end.

Russell BrandRussell Brand has signed up to front a new topical late night TV series.

The stand-up comic-and-actor has agreed a deal with cable network FX to present the series on which Russell will give his "unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture."

"We're very excited to add Russell Brand's bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up. We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller's ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience," said Nick Grad -- FX executive vice-president of original programming -- in a statement.

The 36-year-old star claims he is "excited" to the "point of climax" about the project, which will hit screens next spring. Making a joke about Fox News political commentator Bill O'Reilly, Russell exclaimed, "I am so excited I'm on the point of climax. In fact, I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel's real name. That's the only thing that worries me about all this, to be honest. At least I'll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O'Reilly."
