Superhero Hype reports that Natalie Portman will be hosting this week's episode of Saturday Night Live. The March 4 airing will also feature musical guest Fallout Boy.

One of the most talented and sought-after young actresses working today, Natalie Portman hosts SNL on March 4. Portman will soon be seen in the Wachowski Brothers' controversial and eagerly awaited "V For Vendetta." Known to millions of fans for her work in George Lucas' hugely successful "Star Wars" prequel trilogy, Portman is also an acclaimed Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner for her work in Mike Nichols' "Closer" opposite Julia Roberts, Jude Law and Clive Owen. She also earned praise for her work in Zach Braff's "Garden State," "Cold Mountain," "Where The Heart Is," "Anywhere But Here," "Everybody Says I Love You," "Mars Attacks!" and "Heat." Portman rose to early acclaim in two roles - her debut as a young girl protected by a hitman in "The Professional" and the ensemble comedy "Beautiful Girls."

Wow, finally a reason to watch the show. Hopefully, Natalie will do a good job, and not completely destroy my image of her.

Update: Natalie was awesome on SNL. Check out the Natalie Portman Rap Video from Saturday Night Live. An instant classic for sure.

Here are some Natalie Portman pictures from the New York premiere of V for Vendetta, with more after the jump. Lauren Bush and Robert Kennedy Jr. were in attendance. Quite the crowd, n'est pas?
