Lindsay Lohan Is Officially Hosting 'Saturday Night Live'

The controversial starlet is "very much looking forward" to returning to NBC's comedy show

Lindsay Lohan is ready for her comeback -- at least when it comes to America's favorite late-night comedy sketch show. Saturday Night Live broke the news in their "stay tuned for next week" teaser last weekend that Lohan is scheduled to host the March 3 episode with musical guest Jack White.

No, that isn't a joke. The controversial 25-year-old actress -- who's been in and out of jail over the past year -- is confirmed to return to Studio H for her fourth SNL hosting gig. It will be the first time she hosts NBC's legendary show since 2006. Lohan took to Twitter Sunday to thank the network for their support:

"SNL! I love @NBC !!!!!!!!!!!!!" she twittered. Lohan's mother Dina also chimed in with her excitement: "Lindsay Lohan is coming back to Saturday Night Live yay!!!" 

The network also weighed in on Twitter, declaring: "That's right: March 3rd, @lindsaylohan with musical guest Jack White!! See you then! #SNL #March3rd"

Producer Lorne Michaels and his staff haven't released any statements about the decision to ask Lohan back as a host, but the young actress was once an SNL regular. She hosted three times in the mid-2000s, making her debut at only 17.

With no film or music projects to promote, Lohan (who's currently in contention to play Elizabeth Taylor and recently revealed all in a Playboy centerfold) seems an odd choice for the show -- except to help boost her negative image and remind viewers there's a reason she was once one of Hollywood's hottest young stars. 

Her rep Steve Honig shared more of Lohan's gratitude: "Lindsay is very much looking forward to hosting SNL and working with the incredible cast, crew and writers to put on a memorable show."
