Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will host Saturday Night Live on October 8, Deadline reports. Miranda will be joined by those other paragons of popular American musical culture, Twenty One Pilots.

Miranda sheared off his signature ponytail after stepping down from the title role of his Broadway sensation this past July, and even his fellow New Yorkers are having trouble recognizing him. Fear not, that is the real Miranda on your TV screen.

SNL‘s new season debuts October 1, hosted by Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie and featuring musical guest the Weeknd.
