Mark your calendars for March 8th!
Variety reports that Lena Dunham will be hosting Saturday Night Live. The writer and creator of “Girls” will appear alongside musical guests The National, also making their debut on the iconic show. (FYI: as Jewcy points out, Aaron Dessner once studied Jewish history at Columbia.)
The band’s most recent album, “Trouble Will Find Me,” was nominated for a Grammy this year and their documentary “Mistaken For Strangers” hits theaters in late March.
Can one squeal via Twitter? Because Lena Dunham just did.
Thank you for the SNL love. Dream come true. Can’t wait to debut my character “girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say”! — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) February 25, 2014
Anne Cohen was the Forward’s deputy digital media editor. When she’s not looking for the secret Jewish history of Voodoo in New Orleans, or making lists about Ruth Bader Ginsburg , she writes for The Assimilator. She graduated from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism with an M.S. magazine concentration in 2012.
