(Newser) – Elon Musk is again doing something unlikely for one of the world's richest people: hosting Saturday Night Live.

And Musk is no stranger to the spotlight. The billionaire has previously made guest appearances on The Big Bang Theory, Rick and Morty, The Simpsons, and other shows, per NPR.
