The actor will host the NBC hit for the third time on November 17. It's been over ten years since The Office alum hosted, so it's bound to be a momentous occasion.

He will star on the new series opposite Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. 

Over on CBS All Access, Michael Sheen has landed the series regular role of Roland Blum on The Good Fight Season 3, according to TV Line.
