Actor Jonathan Majors, of "Loki" and "Lovecraft Country" fame, made his hosting debut last night on "Saturday Night Live."

During the actor's opening monologue, Majors talked about his path to stardom that at one point passed through Connecticut.

“I like to say I was born in California, raised in Texas, educated in North Carolina, roughed up in New York City and then re-educated in New Haven, Connecticut," Majors said. “Which I guess is my roundabout way of saying, ‘yeah, I went to Yale.’”

Majors attended the Yale School of Drama and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2016. While attending Yale, Majors starred in five different plays produced by the School of Drama. Majors was also featured in productions by Yale Repertory Theatre and Yale Cabaret. 

Most recently, Majors can be seen in "The Harder They Fall," a Netflix movie co-starring Idris Elba. Majors has also been tapped to portray the role of Kang the Conqueror in Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," which will be released in 2023.
