Zach Galifianakis (May 4), Kristen Wiig (May 11) and Ben Affleck (May 18) will host the last three SNL's of the season.

Zach Galifianakis returns to Saturday Night Live for his third appearance as host. Galifianakis can next be seen in The Hangover Part III, which hits theaters on May 24. Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men make their SNL debut. The band scored a Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Rock Album for "My Head Is an Animal," and their platinum selling debut single "Little Talks" has topped the Billboard Alternative Chart.

Former cast member Kristen Wiig makes her hosting debut on May 11. The four-time Emmy nominated actress and Oscar nominated screenwriter appears in a string of upcoming films including Girl Most Likely, Despicable Me 2, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Joining Wiig is Vampire Weekend, returning to the SNL stage for their third appearance as musical guest. The Grammy nominated band's upcoming album, "Modern Vampires of the City," is set for a May 14 release.

Closing out the SNL season for his fifth time as host, Ben Affleck's most recent directorial effort, Argo, won Best Picture at the 2013 Academy Awards and he can next be seen in Runner Runner. Kanye West also makes his fifth appearance as SNL's musical guest. The 21-time Grammy Award winner's newest album will be released later this year.

"Saturday Night Live" is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
