Weeks ago, some source leaked out the new cast members of this upcoming season of Saturday Night Live, which was kept at a level of heavily rumored at the time. Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Noel Wells, John Milheiser, and Mike O’Brien were all announced, but not officially by NBC, as joining SNL in the coming weeks. In short, we don’t like things that are just heavy rumors.
Yet, this post at The Hollywood Reporter doesn’t include the phrase “heavily rumored”, so we’re about posting about this news now and can say congratulations to all the new cast members as well as the new full time SNL staff writers Brooks Wheelan, Claire Mulaney, and Michael Che.
Based off this cast list, we very well may see Aubrey Plaza mime the words of Kyle Kinane in the drunk retelling of The Haymarket Riot. We cannot wait for July 9th when Drunk History premieres on Comedy Central.
