Did someone order Oscar-winner Ben Affleck with a side of music superstar Kanye West? Saturday Night Live sure did.

NBC announced today that Affleck will host the May 18 season finale, with Kim Kardashian's baby-daddy serving as musical guest.

And less than a year after leaving SNL, Kristen Wiig will return to her stomping grounds as the host on the May 11 episodes. Vampire Weekend will be the musical guest for Wiig's triumphant return to the 30 Rock stage.

Zach Galifianakis is set to host on May 4 with musical guest Of Monsters and Men.

Saturday Night Live, which is in its 38th season, has enjoyed a parade of multitalented hosts this year: Seth MacFarlane, Justin Timberlake, Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Lawrence and Adam Levine have all graced the SNL stage this season.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)

What do you think of the choices for the season finale? Happy to have Wiig back?
