Pedro Pascal can currently be seen starring in not one but two hit series, HBO’s “The Last of Us” and Disney+ “Star Wars” spin-off “The Mandalorian”, and this weekend he’ll be adding to his resume by making his “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut.
In a hilarious promo, Pascal is seen basking in the glow of Studio 8H when he suddenly hears the distinctive screeching-clicking sound of one of the “clickers” from “The Last of Us”.
Pascal springs into action, grabbing a hammer from a prop table and prepares to bash the clicker in the skull when he’s suddenly interrupted by cast members Sarah Sherman and Molly Kearney.

“What are you doing you psycho?” shrieks Sherman, informing Pascal that the clicker he was about to kill is actually a new cast member, Matt.
“Listen, I know it’s your first time hosting, but a little advice,” Sherman warns. “Don’t hit the cast members with a hammer, you maniac!”
“Look, we’re gonna get past this,” adds Kearney, “but I gotta be honest: not the best first impression. Get better.”
In another set of promos, Pascal promotes the show alongside cast member Ego Nwodim and musical guest Coldplay — or, as Nwodim declares, “Cold Place.”
