According to the latest Saturday Night Live promos, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band have joined the comedy show’s cast. “Can I play Dr. Fauci?” Stevie “Little Steven” Van Zandt volunteers from the back row.
OK, so probably not, but the New Jersey rockers are the musical guests on this weekend’s episode, hosted by Timothee Chalamet.
Speaking of the actor, the promos also feature SNL castmember Cecily Strong roping him into re-creating the title moment from his breakout 2017 movie Call Me by Your Name, in which Chalamet’s Elio and Armie Hammer’s Oliver romantically swap monikers. But it’s not exactly intimate when you’re surrounded by the full E Street Band — especially when Springsteen (hilariously) breaks the mood with a terse “And I’m Bruce.”
Watch the promos below, and tune in to see the new episode Saturday night at 11:35 p.m. ET/8:35 p.m. PT on NBC.
