Justin Timberlake has accumulated a lot of significant numbers throughout his career. He’s won six Grammys and four Emmys. He’s sold more than 14 million albums. He’s survived dating one Britney Spears. Perhaps most impressive of all, though, is the number he acquired a couple of weeks ago: hosting “Saturday Night Live” for the fifth time. That placed him in pretty rare company, alongside such big names as Steve Martin, Danny Devito, John Goodman, Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin and Paul Simon. To put all this in the proper historical – and hysterical – perspective, here’s a look back at the first “SNL” appearances of Timberlake and other members of the Five Timers Club.
Paul Simon, Oct. 18, 1975
Steve Martin, Oct. 23, 1976
