After January 18, Nothing Will Be the Same in the Saturday Night Live studios. Drake is set to host and play the first new SNL episode of 2014, making him the latest entry in a growing list of musicians who have pulled double duty on the NBC comedy institution.

For those keeping track, this is also Drake's first TV acting gig since he played the wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation. We'd suggest SNL do a parody of the Canadian teen soap with Aubrey Graham on board, but Nick Kroll already produced the ultimate Degrassi spoof, so why bother? Watch the hilarious "Wheels Ontario" below.
