After a tumultuous spring and summer of cast changes, with standout veterans Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg quitting, second-stringer Abby Elliot leaving, and Jason Sudeikis still on the fence, Saturday Night Live has announced three new cast members in the lead-up to its season premiere this weekend. All three are Second City alums based out of Chicago, and all three are on YouTube.
Aidy Bryant has a number of videos in which she prominently features, one that has her playing an ambush masseuse.
Tim Robinson features in a Craigslist Missed Connections parody that has him playing a possibly murderous creep.
And Cecily Strong is supposedly somewhere in this somewhat NSFW fake ad about, uh, private parts.
All three will be featured cast members. Welcome, gang! We'd imagine it's going to be a bit weird in the post-Samberg/Wiig world, but have fun all the same.
