Sean Hayes, who recently told the Los Angeles Times that he won’t publicly discuss his sexual orientation until after his acting career is over, will host Saturday Night Live on February 17. Best known for his Emmy-winning role as the flamboyantly gay Jack on Will & Grace as well as his turn as a lovelorn gay photographer in the film Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss, Hayes is, like several SNL cast members, an alumnus of the famed Second City comedy troupe. Saturday Night Live airs on NBC at 11:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific (check local listings).
