Colin Jost has a very special job in mind for his Saturday Night Live costar Michael Che when he marries fiancée Scarlett Johansson.

Jost made a virtual appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, where he revealed what he expects from his "Weekend Update" partner at his upcoming nuptials.

"What I really want from Che, I want to ask him to do an objection at the wedding," he said. "A lot of people do speeches, but I think it would be nice. So few people utilize that moment to object. I think he could do a really great objection."

Jost and Johansson became engaged in May 2019 but have had to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic. DeGeneres said that whenever a new wedding date is set, she plans to be there as Che's plus one.

"That'd be so sweet. What you want in a COVID wedding is a bunch of extra plus ones," joked Jost, 38. "Hopefully they're flying in from across the country. It's a great set-up. Thank you so much. We're excited to have you."

The couple first met in 2010 when Johansson, 35, was a host on SNL. After the Avengers actress hosted again in 2017, the two were seen kissing at the show's afterparty.

In December 2019, Johansson sweetly thanked SNL for introducing her to "the love of my life."

Jost, who keeps his relationship with the actress low-key, previously told PEOPLE, the added public attention from his relationship has been strange, saying, "I've gotten more self-conscious about it."

"I'm still surprised that anyone cares about anything I do, because for so long in my life, no one did."

This will be Jost's first marriage and second; she was married to Romain Dauriac (with whom she shares daughter Rose, 3) from 2014-17.
