Live from New York, it's Lindsay Lohan ! The embattled actress will host 'Saturday Night Live' on March 3, the show has confirmed.

The source added that Lohan has always loved hosting the show and looks to Michaels as a father figure.
Since Lohan first hosted 'SNL' back in 2004 at the tender age of 17, the actress has been through quite a lot, including multiple court appearances and several jail stints. In the years since, she's had a hard time reigniting her once-thriving movie career. Most recently she was attached to a movie about mobster John Gotti . She last hosted 'SNL' in 2006.
While Lohan has had a hard time booking movie gigs, she did make headlines when she appeared in Playboy in December . In the issue, the actress opened up about her public woes.
'Looking back, I probably would have listened to and taken more advice from the people whom I admire and would have followed through with it more,' she said. 'My stubbornness at 18 and 19 years old got in the way. During the past five years, I've learned that time flies faster than you think, and because you only live once, you have to learn from your mistakes, live your dreams and be accountable.'
