Pete Davidson may soon add “amateur astronaut” to his resume.

The Saturday Night Live star is close to signing a deal to join Jeff Bezos on a Blue Origin spaceflight, according to sources speaking to the New York Post and CNN.

“Pete is excited,” one source told the Post, which first broke the story. “They haven’t signed a contract yet, but it looks like it’s going to happen. The details are being finalized. He got on really well with Jeff when they met.”

The surprising space travel development stems from a dinner attended by Davidson and his now-officially single girlfriend Kim Kardashian at Bezos’ L.A. mansion. No details have been set, but the flight will likely happen later this year.

Coincidentally, Davidson has actually played a Mars colonist…on an SNL episode hosted by SpaceX CEO and rival billionaire space racer Elon Musk.

Davidson wouldn’t be the first celebrity to board a craft made by Blue Origin, a commercial aerospace company founded by Bezos in 2000.

As CNN notes, former NFL Giant-turned commentator Michael Strahan and Star Trek‘s William Shatner have both made Blue Origin flights, which reach suborbital realms 62 miles above Earth.

Bezos made his first foray into space in July 2021 alongside his brother Mark, 18-year-old Dutch teen Oliver Daemen, and one-time NASA trainee Mary Wallace “Wally” Funk.

Meanwhile, Kim K’s erratic ex Kanye West keeps slamming Davidson in the media. And his latest broadside may be the most disturbing one yet. Earlier this week, Ye released a music video in which a cartoon version of the rapper kidnapped a Davidson lookalike, who ends up decapitated in the clip.
