D’Angelo to make Saturday Night Live debut.

The character actor, known for his roles in films like Jason Reitman’s Juno and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man series, and on the television series Oz, has received critical acclaim for his recent portrayal of a disturbing, aggressive jazz instructor in the movie Whiplash, earning him awards galore including a nod from the Academy.

Simmons is going to host Saturday Night Live on January 31st and D’Angelo will be the musical guest in a rare TV appearance after releasing his first album (Black Messiah) in 14 years, according to SNL‘s twitter account. Simmons is, of course, known as a character actor and someone who is used to playing super serious characters on both sides of the good/bad divide, but he’s done some comedy as well with his voice work on BoJack Horseman, Juno, his great 2-episode run on Party Down, and his over-the-top J.

The actor has been around for a long time, with roles on Oz and Law & Order and he starred in Juno, but this is the first time he is finally getting his time in the spotlight.
