“The Dark Tower” and “Luther” star will make his “SNL” hosting debut on Saturday alongside musical guest Khalid.

Elba, 46, put on a sharp suit and celebrated his hosting gig with a dance party for one. He also had a bottle of champagne, of course. “Idris, you can’t drink that in here!” yelled “SNL” cast member Aidy Bryant. “You gotta drink this,” she smirked while pulling out a human-sized bottle.

“Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Idris Elba and I’m hosting ‘SNL'” he said in a separate promo for the show. “I’m so excited,” Elba whispered.
