Kieran Culkin’s Emmy-nominated performance as Roman Roy in HBO’s drama “Succession” is back in the conversation as the show is currently amid its ongoing Season 3. Well-timed to each Sunday night’s “Succession” episode, Kieran Culkin will next host “Saturday Night Live” on November 6, joined by musical guest Ed Sheeran. Culkin joins a roster of previous hosts for Season 47 including Owen Wilson with musical guest Kacey Musgraves; Kim Kardashian West with Halsey; Rami Malek and Young Thug; and Jason Sudeikis and Brandi Carlile. There will not be a Halloween weekend episode this year.
