Report: Three Popular 'Saturday Night Live' Cast Members Are Poised to Leave the Show US Magazine
Three mainstays of the current "Saturday Night Live" lineup may be leaving the long-running NBC late-night comedy show, USMagazine.com reports.
Cast members Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis may be poised to move on, following the career paths of other recent alums including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the story reports.
However, a representative for Wiig and Sudeikis refuted the report and added that decisions won't be made until the season is over, according to the story.
Nevertheless, the timing for a career move may be right for Wiig, who had a hit with the film "Bridesmaids," while Sudeikis is working on the film "Relanxious," in which he plays an agoraphobic searching for love, the story notes.
As previously reported, Wiig's contract with "SNL" expires at the end of the current season, and with her future up in the air, the show has added a new female cast member, Kate McKinnon.
