There’s a new season of Saturday Night Live around the corner, and since cast members like Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis are out, it’s time to introduce a new crop of performers who may or may not be joining this year when the show kicks off on September 28th. Via HuffPo …
- Noël Wells has been doing sketches and impressions on her YouTube channel since she was a student at the University of Texas at Austin. She also makes videos for Cracked and CollegeHumor.
- Beck Bennett is perhaps best known for his deadpan appearance in a recent AT&T campaign. He’s also in the sketch group Good Neighbor, which currently has a deal with Comedy Central. Recently, Bennett was the lead in the sports indie comedy Intramural, which also featured SNL players Kate McKinnon and Jay Pharaoh.
- Kyle Mooney is also in Good Neighbor, along with Bennett, and was a writer on Nathan For You. He’s also appeared on Parks & Recreation.
- John Milhiser is on a sketch team at UCB in L.A., and has also been involved with Lorne Michaels’ web video company Above Average.
Possible congrats to all of them assuming these casting rumors are true. Just remember: Never bring Justin Bieber back on SNL. He’s the reason Hader quit, and he can’t carry a sketch for sh!t.
