"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Saturday Night Live guru Lorne Michaels could have some very big shoes to fill on the sketch-comedy series if an US Weekly report is accurate: Rumor has it that cast members Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis may be leaving the show after this season.
While representatives for Wiig and Sudeikis say no decisions have been made, it wouldn’t come as much of a surprise the two of the decided to focus more on their film careers. Samberg’s star also seems to be on the rise with upcoming roles in That’s My Boy with Adam Sandler, Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania, and The To-Do List.
Don’t worry too much for SNL, though. While all three cast members have pulled double duty as performers and writers, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers and a host of younger comedians will be able to keep things moving right along. Add in the upcoming featured performers and they should be all set.
