'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE' SPRINGS INTO APRIL WITH TWO NEW SHOWS APRIL 5 & 12

Perennial "SNL" Favorite Christopher Walken Returns with Musical Guest Panic At The Disco April 5

Ashton Kutcher To Host April 12 with Music from Gnarls Barkley

NEW YORK � April 1, 2008 � "Saturday Night Live" returns to the airwaves this week with two back-to-back live shows.

This Saturday, April 5 features Oscar winner and perennial favorite SNL host Christopher Walken, in his seventh hosting stint (his first appearance in five years). Walken is a potent presence on "SNL," generating some of the show's most memorable moments from his cries of "More Cowbell" to Will Ferrell to his recurring character "The Continental." A veteran of over 50 films, Walken won the 1978 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his work in "The Deer Hunter" and was nominated again in 2002 for his work in "Catch Me If You Can." After his unforgettable debut as "Duane Hall" in Woody Allen's classic "Annie Hall," Walken appeared in such memorable films as "Pennies From Heaven," "The Dead Zone," "At Close Range," "Biloxi Blues" "King of New York," "Pulp Fiction," "Batman Returns," "True Romance," "Man On Fire," "Wedding Crashers" "Click" and most recently in the musical "Hairspray," to name just a few.

Joining Walken, and making their SNL debut is modern rock sensation Panic At The Disco. The Las Vegas based band will perform from the critically praised sophomore release "Pretty. Odd." Which is the follow-up to their certified platinum debut "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out" which brought the band from a massive following on the internet to the mainstream, selling 2.2 million copies, packing clubs all over the world and winning an MTV VMA for Video of the Year in the process.

On April 12, Ashton Kutcher returns to "SNL" for his third hosting appearance. Kutcher has made his mark on the big and small screens both in front and behind of the camera. Kutcher will soon be seen starring opposite Cameron Diaz in the romantic comedy "What Happens in Vegas." Kutcher became known to millions as "Michael Kelso" on the long-running comedy hit "That 70's Show." Kutcher remains firmly in the television industry, producing such buzzed about shows as "Punk'd" and "Beauty and the Geek" and the new mid-season comedy series "Miss Guided." Other film credits include the comedies "Dude Where's My Car," "Guess Who" and "Cheaper By The Dozen," the romantic comedies "A Lot Like Love" and "Just Married" to thrillers "The Butterfly Effect" and "The Guardian."

Appearing alongside Kutcher is critically acclaimed musical guest Gnarls Barkley, making their "SNL" debut. Gnarls will perform from their just-released CD, "The Odd Couple." Gnarls Barkley is the pairing of Danger Mouse, one of the most creative producers working today and versatile singer Cee-Lo Green. The pair burst onto the music scene in 2006 with their ubiquitous single "Crazy" which topped the charts in the UK before blowing up in the US, leading to the release of their Grammy-winning debut album "St. Elsewhere."
