Simu Liu is both smiling and terrified during Saturday Night Live rehearsals.

It’s… live from New York.

Simu Liu, who starred as Shang-Chi in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, has had a busy month in New York.

This week, Liu will not only host Saturday Night Live, but he will also visit Sesame Street for a Thanksgiving Day special that will feature the first Asian American muppet.

Liu is one of a handful of Marvel stars to be asked to host SNL this season, joining Loki and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantunmania’s Jonathan Majors.

Liu shared his excitement (and nerves) about his upcoming appearance on a sketch show on Instagram yesterday.

“JUST SMILE TO HIDE THE CRIPPLY ANXIETY OF KNOWING YOU’RE HOSTING SNL IN THREE DAYS,” Liu wrote.

The post was reacted to by some of the actor’s Shang-Chi co-stars.

Benedict Wong wrote “Simu Night Live.”

Fala Chen added, “You’re going to be great!”

Liu’s post is available here:

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings debuted in theaters in September, breaking Labor Day weekend box office records and becoming the highest-grossing domestic film of 2021. Since the film’s release, Liu has shared fun videos from his Marvel press tour.

The actor shared a video from his Los Angeles journey, followed by a video from his London tour, and finally, highlights from his visit to Toronto.

Liu had another exciting journey in New York before being announced as an SNL host, which included not only doing press for his Marvel film but also a special stop at the Met Gala.

Simu Liu plays Shang-Chi, Awkwafina plays Katy, Meng’er Zhang plays Xialing, Tony Leung plays Wenwu, Michelle Yeoh plays Jiang Nan, Ben Kingsley plays Trevor Slattery, Fala Chen plays Ying Li, Florian Munteanu plays Razor Fist, Ronny Chieng plays Jon Jon, and Benedict Wong plays Wong in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Tell us in the comments if you’re excited for Liu to host SNL.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is now available to watch on Disney+.

On the 20th of November, Simu Liu will host Saturday Night Live.
