Lindsay Lohan to host 'Saturday Night Live' in March - Will you watch? (Poll)
Lindsay Lohan is set to return to the "Saturday Night Live" stage.
The 25-year-old actress will host the show on March 3 with musical guest Jack White, who is perhaps best known for as the lead singer and guitarist of The White Stripes, according to an announcement by NBC.
It will be Lohan's fourth turn as host of the late-night sketch show. She previously hosted episodes in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
It was around the time of her third appearance that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who were cast members at the time and who co-starred alongside Lohan in "Mean Girls" staged an intervention with producer Lorne Michaels for the troubled actress.
In a 2006 interview with Vanity Fair, Lohan said according to People, "(They) sat me down, literally before I was going to do ('SNL'), and they said, 'You need to take care of yourself. We care about you too much, and we've seen too many people do this, and you're talented,' and I just started bawling. I knew I had a problem and I couldn't admit it."
Lohan, who last appeared on screen in 2010 in the film "Machete," has had several legal issues since her last appearance on "Saturday Night Live."
In 2007 she was arrested for drunk driving and cocaine possession and was sentenced to three years probation in addition to jail time and community service. The probation was extended an addition year in October 2009 after the actress failed to attend substance abuse treatment classes.
She has completed five stints in jail and was ordered to complete 480 hours of community service at a women's shelter and at a morgue as part of a sentence handed down for a misdemeanor theft charge involving a $2,500 necklace in 2011, which had in itself constituted a violation of her probation.
A judge revoked her probation in October 2011 because she did not meet her required community service appointments at the women's shelter She began community service at the Los Angeles County morgue later that month and has since received solid progress reports for her commitment to her community service hours.
Lohan's next progress report has been scheduled for February 22. She has been ordered to complete 15 days of community service and five therapy sessions by then.
The actress was recently featured on the cover of Playboy's January 2012 issue and talked about her personal troubles in an interview with the magazine, saying: "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."
