Hollywood actor Dan Aykroyd is set to return to his comedic roots as guest host for this weekend's (17MAY03) SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE season finale.

The 50-year-old actor and comedian was one of the popular show's original castmembers from 1975-80, and made his name with his original characters and impressions of RICHARD NIXON, Tom Snyder and Jimmy Carter.

After he left the show, Aykroyd appeared in films such as THE BLUES BROTHERS with John Belushi, Ghostbusters and Driving Miss Daisy, for which he was nominated for a best supporting actor OSCAR.

DESTINY'S CHILD stunner Beyonce Knowles will make her third appearance on the show as guest performer, singing songs from her upcoming solo album DANGEROUSLY IN LOVE.
