Saturday Night Live is starting 2018 off right with some big-name celebs.

Jessica Chastain will be among the January hosts, the NBC show revealed on Thursday. The Molly's Game star is taking the hosting reins for the first time, a week before returning SNL star Will Ferrell hosts the show for the fourth time. This week, fresh off winning his first Golden Globe, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star Sam Rockwell will make his hosting debut.

On the musical guest front, viewers will be treated to the stylings of Halsey, Troye Sivan and country star Chris Stapleton (where we wouldn't be surprised to see SNL-favorite Justin Timberlake pop up, as the two collaborate on the "Filthy" singer's upcoming album).

Saturday Night Live kicks off again beginning Jan. 13 at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT, live coast-to-coast.
