NEW YORK - He's played Beldar Conehead, Elwood Blues and Fred Garvin, Male Prostitute. But this Saturday, you can call Dan Aykroyd host.
Aykroyd, an original "Saturday Night Live" cast member, returns to the sketch comedy show this weekend to host for the first time. His appearance on the season finale is scheduled for 11:30 p.m. EDT Saturday on NBC.
Beyonce Knowles from Destiny's Child will be the musical guest, the network said Tuesday.
The 50-year-old actor and comedian was on "SNL" from 1975-80, and made his name with his original characters and impressions of Richard Nixon, Tom Snyder and Jimmy Carter.
After he left the show, Aykroyd appeared in films such as "The Blues Brothers" with John Belushi, "Ghostbusters" and "Driving Miss Daisy," for which he was nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actor.
Knowles, 21, will make her third appearance on "SNL," singing songs from her upcoming solo album, "Dangerously in Love." She's previously performed with Destiny's Child and with rapper Jay-Z.
