‘Saturday Night Live’ Cast Member Confirms Exit
‘Saturday Night Live’ just lost another cast member ahead of its next season.
Cast member Fred Armisen confirmed that his closing skit on the past season final with Ben Affleck was his last (you can re-watch the last skit here). The funnyman told Splitsider that he “didn’t do any kind of official announcement, but I really felt it was obvious.” Armisen will now concentrate on his ‘Portlandia’ series on IFC which recently got renewed.
The big question now is: Will Jason Sudeikis also leave the sketch comedy? Along with Armisen, Bill Hader also departed the show. ‘Weekend Update’ anchor Seth Meyers will also leave this at the end of 2013. He replaces another SNL alum Jimmy Fallon as host of the ‘Late Show’ in 2014.
Are you disappointed to see Armisen and possibly Sudeikis go?
