The CEO of auto company Tesla and aerospace firm SpaceX — which successfully launched the second operational flight of its Dragon spacecraft for NASA on Friday — has previously appeared in films like “Iron Man 2” in 2010, and TV shows such as “The Big Bang Theory” in 2015.

Singer Miley Cyrus will perform as musical guest on the show in her sixth SNL appearance.
