‘Saturday Night Live’ Will Add Two Rookies to the Mix

Over the course of the last couple months, ‘Satuday Night Live‘ has lost at least three cast members, with Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, and Abby Elliot out the door, and with a fourth, Jason Sudeikis, all but saying he wasn’t coming back. Those are some shoes to fill, and it looks like they’re bringing in some new kids.

The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson are two of your newest ‘SNL’ cast members. Bryant and Robinson have done their time at Second City, with Robinson having starred in a British TV show called ‘Nice Day for a Welsh Wedding.’ Both have marginal credits to this point.

What this also tells us is that it’s unlikely that Lorne Michaels and company will go with any ringers to replace some of the highest profile members of the cast. This is likely because most people who join ‘SNL’ have to sign a seven year contract, which means if you work, you’re stuck on the show for a very long time. But with four cast members leaving, it’s quite possible that we may see another face or two join the cast before the season premiere next Saturday, September 15.

UPDATE: ‘SNL’ also added Cecily Strong for the new season, yielding a total of three new cast members. Strong also hails from Chicago’s Second City, where she toured nationally with the company and worked a gig on the Norwegian Jewel cruise ship with Second City Theatricals.
