Margot Robbie To Host ‘SNL’ Season Opener.

Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie will host the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on October 1. The Weeknd will be musical guest as the NBC late-night staple launches its 42nd season.

SNL is adding three new featured players for the upcoming season: improv performer Alex Moffat and America’s Got Talent finalist Melissa Villaseñor, as well as Mikey Day, who has been a writer on the show since 2013.

The trio would be filling the void left from the recent exit of three cast members, veterans Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah and freshman Jon Rudnitsky.

Moffat, Villaseñor and Day will also make their debut October 1.

Robbie played Harley Quinn in Warner Bros’ Suicide Squad, the studio’s latest in the DC Universe movies. The pic has made $720.8 million globally, and Robbie was widely considered the breakout among the ensemble cast that included Will Smith and Jared Leto.

The Weeknd is returning as musical guest. His upcoming album Starboy is due out November 25.

Margot keeps it real: ‘Listen up ladies ‘cause this s**t matters!’

MARGOT Robbie has joined her Suicide Squad bestie Cara Delevinge in raising awareness about female cancers.

The Queensland star took to Instagram yesterday to share a snap of herself wearing a Lady Garden Campaign hoodie.

“Listen up ladies ‘cause this s**t matters!” she wrote.

“Educate yourselves, help raise awareness, donate.”

Robbie, 26, joins a string of celebs including fellow Aussie Natalie Imbruglia, Vogue Williams, and Elizabeth Hurley donning the jumpers to raise awareness and money for the Gynecological Cancer Fund.

Delevinge has fronted this year’s campaign, which involved a set of pictures in which she appeared wearing only the Lady Garden sweatshirt along with a strategically placed sunflower.

Last year’s campaign saw the likes of Ellie Goulding and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley throw their support behind it on social media.

The campaign also aims to empower women everywhere to talk more openly – without shyness or shame – about gynaecological cancers, which are often referred to as “the silent killers”.

Margot Robbie to Star in Period Love Drama ‘Queen of the Air’.

The script from the 2013 book tells the story of trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel and her tragic love affair with Alfredo Codona.
Margot Robbie is going from Quinn to Queen.

The actress, fresh from her standout performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, is attached to star in Queen of the Air, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the book by Dean N. Jensen.

Andrew Lazar, one of the producers of the studio’s mega hit American Sniper, is producing the period love drama, which has a script by Cat Vasko.
Jensen’s book, published by Crown in 2013, told the story of Lillian Leitzel, a trapeze artist who in the early 20th century was one of the biggest stars in the world as she performed for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Her tragic love affair with Alfredo Codona, who may have been one of the best trapeze artists to ever flip under the big top, also was chronicled. The two were tempestuous artists, divas and madly in love.

Leitzel, who was 4 foot, 9 inches tall, had a signature move that required her to dislocate her shoulder at every turn (she would do the move a hundred times) and had wrists that had been grooved from ropes.

Codona, for his part, regularly executed the Triple: three somersaults in the air so dangerous that other performers died trying to do it.

The book tracked their rise to fame, from the mud-caked small-town circuses to the big time, and their marriage and tragic deaths just a few years later.

Niija Kuykendall is overseeing the project.

There is no director yet for Queen of the Air but the attachment shows how keen Warners is on staying in the Robbie business. The actress already has starred in 2015’s Focus and this summer’s The Legend of Tarzan for the studio and Suicide Squad has generated much buzz for Robbie for her turn as the DC Comics villainess. Plans are already afoot for Robbie to star in and develop a spinoff featuring Harley Quinn and other DC female heroes and villains.

The actress next shoots Goodbye Christopher Robin, Fox Searchlight’s tale of A.A. Milne and his writing of Winnie the Pooh.

Robbie is repped by Management 360, CAA, Jackoway Tyerman and Australia’s Aran Michael Management.
