(Newser) – A familiar face returns to Saturday Night Live on May 11: Kristen Wiig will be back for her first stint as host, reports Deadline.com. Wiig left the show at the end of last season—with a sendoff from Mick Jagger—and her movie career has been strong since. Films on deck include an Anchorman sequel, Girl Most Likely, Despicable Me 2, and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Vampire Weekend will be her musical guest, reports Rolling Stone, while Entertainment Weekly rounds up some favorite Wiig sketches from SNL.
