"In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I’m hosting, and it’s gonna be a wild ride," he continued. "So buckle your seat belts." (His former Saturday Night Live buddy Seth Meyers hosted last year.)

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star will have plenty of famous pals to poke fun of in the audience. He took home an Emmy in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for his work on SNL in 2007. In addition, he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his FOX comedy last year.
