Lindsay Lohan signs on to host 'Saturday Night Live'

Lindsay Lohan will host "Saturday Night Live"

Lindsay Lohan will host "Saturday Night Live" on March 3, adding another notch to a pop-culture comeback belt that already includes an appearance in Playboy.

Prolific host Alec Baldwin need not feel threatened just yet -- it'll only be LiLo's fourth turn as host. She had hosting gigs in 2004, 2005 and 2006, before she became more likely to be the subject of a sketch than to appear in one as a guest.

This time around, the writers should have plenty to work with.

With her community service at the morgue on track to end soon, Lohan reportedly called up "SNL" exec producer Lorne Michaels and proposed she host, sources close to the actress told TMZ. (At least it wasn't her dad doing it this time without her permission.)

Jack White will be the musical guest, NBC said.
