If you've never heard of Jost, you're about to be very impressed. He's a Harvard grad who landed a gig writing for the show in 2005. You know, just a year after graduating. In 2012, he became head writer, and has held the title ever since. And, if his stellar career wasn't enough, he's also dating fellow comedic powerhouse Rashida Jones.
There's no word yet if Jost will do any sketches other than his co-hosting gig with Cecily Strong. But, if he absolutely nails it, then maybe we'll see him in other scenarios, too. Set aside the night of February 1, people. It's the last time you'll see Meyers behind that desk. (Gothamist)
