Live from New York, it's Alec Baldwin!

Saturday Night Live announced on Monday that the 58-year-old actor will be hosting the show for his 17th time on Feb. 11, with Ed Sheeran returning for a second time as the musical guest. Baldwin holds the record for the most times hosting SNL, followed by Steve Martin, who has hosted 15 times.

Baldwin first hosted the NBC variety show in 1990 when he was just 32 years old. Now he's a regular on SNL, impersonating President Donald Trump in a series of cameos.

"I'm glad people find it funny," Baldwin told HOLA! magazine of his impression of the commander in chief. "There are bad feelings on both sides, so to have the opportunity to give people a chance to talk and laugh about it is a good thing."

Trump doesn't seem to approve of Baldwin's portrayal of him, at one point tweeting: "The Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad."
