Earlier this month, we reported that Saturday Night Live was asking viewers who they wanted to host the season opener. The show asked people to tweet their suggestions with the hashtag #SNLhost. Well, we now know who will host the show when it kicks off its 42nd season Oct. 1st: Margot Robbie, who played “Harley Quinn” in the movie Suicide Squad. SNL made the announcement on Twitter:
SNL is back next weeknd! pic.twitter.com/YotxBPUFF3

That’s not a typo on the card below her name – the musical guest is The Weeknd. We don’t know how much the #SNLhost votes counted, but Margot Robbie sure had her supporters:
#SNLhost Margot Robbie pls !!!!

Despite mostly negative reviews (it received a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes) Suicide Squad has done well at the box office, taking in more than $300 million domestically. Right now, that makes it the eighth highest-grossing film of the year.
