On the heels of the announcement that Michael Keaton will host the April 4th episode of Saturday Night Live, the show added another host to their April lineup — Empire‘s Taraji P. Henson will host the April 11 episode with musical guest Mumford & Sons.

Considering the showbiz nature of Empire — and the fact that the show is a pop culture behemoth — I wouldn’t rule out cameos from the show’s other actors. I also wouldn’t rule out the possibility that Henson might make fun of the dumber think pieces that the show’s success has spawned. Preferably while wearing a fur coat and being fabulous.
