Listen up, Lorne Michaels! The fall season's almost here and we still haven't heard a peep about who's going to replace Saturday Night Live cast members Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and the soon-to-depart Seth Meyers.
So if you're having trouble making up your mind on who to hire, let me help you out.
Bill Hader is leaving Saturday Night Live, he told The New York Times.
"It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point," Hader said.
Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night when Fallon takes over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno in 2014, NBC announced Sunday.
Saturday Night Live
Kristen Wiig hosted Saturday Night Live this week, returning to the stage for the first time since leaving the show "11 months and 30 days ago," as she noted in her opening monologue. The Bridesmaids star resurrected several of the characters she made famous, including Gilly, the Target lady, Garth and Kat (with Fred Armisen), and Dooneese (the creepy lady with baby hands and a huge forehead). She also brought with her Jonah Hill and her real-life BFF (and Bridesmaids co-star) Maya Rudolph. Watch some of the night's best sketches below:
As NBC plans next year's Tonight Show handoff from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon, the network is taking a hard look at all of its late night options. That includes a potentially extreme makeover of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon once Fallon departs. The network has also given serious consideration to expanding The Tonight Show back to 90 minutes under Fallon, insiders confirm. Such an expansion might have led to a much smaller, 30 minute Late Night. But sources say the 90-minute Tonight Show idea has now been tabled.
Dana Carvey and Mike Myers
Party on! Excellent! As if!
Before voicing the titular ogre in Shrek, Mike Myers was the one and only Wayne of Saturday Night Live's fictional Wayne's World metalhead duo, alongside Dana Carvey as Garth. Myers and Carvey reunited in Beverly Hills Tuesday night for a special screening of 1992's Wayne's World and a Q&A.
