Cambridge-bred Ben Affleck is lending his funny bones to "Saturday Night Live" to close out their 38th season on May 18, while former cast member, Kristen Wiig will make a triumphed-albeit-temporary return May 11. The "Argo" Oscar winner will be joined by musical guest Kanye West. Wiig will be accompanied by "Diane Young" rockers Vampire Weekend.

The currently paused season will return May 4 for three final episodes, beginning with "The Hangover" star Zach Galifianakis and Of Monsters and Men.

The May 18 episode will mark Affleck's (and West's) fifth appearance on the late-night sketch comedy series, which makes us wonder if he'll be joining the "Five-Timer's Club," alongside the likes of Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and Tom Hanks who made cameos to welcome Justin Timberlake back in March.

Are you excited to see the final three episode of "Saturday Night Live"? What did you think of this season?
