Christoph Waltz Will Host 'SNL' February 16th with Alabama Shakes

Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz will host SNL on February 16th, with Southern rock band Alabama Shakes as musical guest. It's the first time on the show for both Waltz and the band, and the show will come just a week ahead of the Oscars ceremony, where Waltz is up for Best Supporting Actor for his part in Django. Alabama Shakes recently received three Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist, for their acclaimed debut album, Boys & Girls.  SNL's next new episode will be on February 9th, with Justin Bieber pulling double-duty as host and musical guest, making Christoph Waltz the second host in a row who's constantly on the cover of Tiger Beat magazine.
