One of the popular cast members of "Saturday Night Live" won’t be returning to the latenight series this fall.

It’s Will Forte, who played the character MacGruber on the show, among other characters.

According to the New York TImes, a rep for Forte said in an email, " ‘After eight great seasons, Will has made the decision to move on from ‘SNL’ to pursue new opportunities. He is eternally grateful to Lorne and all of the incredible people he worked with over the years.’ Mr. Forte joined ‘Saturday Night Live’ in its 2002-3 season."

The reference to Lorne is to Lorne Michaels, who has run "SNL" for many years.
