Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is on the comeback trail.

The former In Living Color star has signed on for a new television gig: Foxx has been tapped to host the late night sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live with special musical guest NeYo on Dec. 8.

Foxx, who started out as a stand up comic, previously hosted Saturday Night Live back in 2000 with musical guests Blink-182.

The hosting gig will create just enough buzz to promote his upcoming film, Django Unchained, which hits theaters a few weeks after his appearance (Dec. 25.)
