He’s been busy promoting his new film “The Muppets” and Jason Segel will host “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

The “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star appears in a series of promotional clips for the episode along with cast member Vanessa Bayer.

And in a recent interview, Jason confessed that hosting “SNL” is the fulfillment of a longtime aspiration.

“Yeah. It’s on my list of childhood dreams. Literally, I had a list of three dreams I wanted to accomplish: One was be on David Letterman, which I did a few years ago. The other was work with the Muppets, which I’ve now done, and the third was to host SNL. And that’s not a joke. That’s honestly the truth.”
