Continuing his occasional forays into the entertainment world, Houston Texans star J.J. Watt will host “Saturday Night Live” on February 1.
The show made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
Watt is the 12th NFL player to host the iconic show, but the first in over seven years: Eli Manning was the last player to host, on May 5, 2012.
