Saturday Night Live lands Adam Sandler

Everyone knows that Adam Sandler was an unforgettable cast member of Saturday Night Live in the early '90s-but did you know that he's actually never returned to host the show?

The long-running sketch show's official Twitter account revealed on Friday that Sandler will host the May 4 episode with musical guest Shawn Mendes.

"We are happy to welcome Adam back to ' SNL' in what is sure to be a special night", said executive producer Lorne Michaels. He starred in such comedies as "Big Daddy", "Billy Madison" and "Happy Gilmore", among dozens more. "Why should I? I don't know how good it would be". Sandler and Farley were both fired from "SNL" in 1995, but Sandler told The Daily Beast in 2014 that "we kind of quit at the same time as being fired". "I did what I could do on that show".
