Taraji P. Henson — the inimitable Cookie — will host "Saturday Night Live" on April 11. A first for her. 

 (And Mumford & Sons is the musical guest.)

Perfect guest host? Perfect guest host, and because the art of show business is often timing, this is perfect timing too. "Empire" just wrapped its first season, as the hottest show on TV, and Cookie as the hottest character...

Michael Keaton will host April 4; good timing too, considering "Birdman's" nice win at the recent Oscars.
