Jacob Elordi is preparing for a special late-night debut…
The 26-year-old half-Spanish Australian actor and Saltburn star will host Saturday Night Live for the first time ever this weekend, and in the first promo teasing his debut, Elordi is seen struggling even before he gets to his opening monologue.
“They all make it look so easy,” he says to himself as a montage of previous hosts walking down the stairs plays.
Cast members Marcello Hernandez and Punkie Johnson appear to offer encouragement.
Elordi tries walking down the stairs in a crouch, sliding and bumping down the steps on his butt before finally launching himself over the edge for a fully upright descent.
SNL airs this Saturday, January 20 at 11:30 pm ET/8:30 pm PT on NBC and streams live on Peacock with Elordi as host and musical guest Reneé Rapp.
