Featured player Paul Brittain is out at Saturday Night Live. News broke that “effective immediately” Brittain is leaving the show to pursue other projects. What projects those are is unclear at the moment as neither SNL or Brittain have yet to comment.
So after a little over a year, the show is down a featured player. Is this the beginning of Lorne Michaels upgrading some and cutting other feature? Maybe. With no one from the cast departing between last season and this one, this is the first lineup change on the show in a while so now it’s time to speculate if there will be any more or not.
But we can take pleasure in the fact that there will be no more Lord Wyndemere sketches in our future.
