Fresh off a recent makeover from "goateed career thespian" to "come and get me, Hollywood," Hamilton star and writer Lin-Manuel Miranda has been tapped to host Saturday Night Live  this weekend, with a musical performance from Twenty One Pilots.

In the short teaser clip, SNL cast member Aidy Bryant tosses out a couple of groan-worthy Hamilton jokes while Josh Dun looks genuinely uncomfortable and Tyler Joseph practices his thousand yard stare. The band does get a nice moment when Miranda and Bryant team up for a TOP-themed knee-slapper, selling the awkward frustration with more than a little lived authenticity.
