Pedro Pascal will host “SNL” for the first time on Feb. 4.

The actor, 47, will be joined by Coldplay, who will mark their seventh time appearing on the iconic sketch show.

Pascal is undoubtedly on a roll with his latest project, HBO’s “The Last of Us,” which has been raking in a historical number of viewers since its first two episodes were released this month.

Pascal’s episode will air on NBC at 11:30 P.M. EST/8:30 P.M. PT and streams live on Peacock.
