Three New Cast Members Join ‘Saturday Night Live’
Fresh off a record-breaking 42nd season, Saturday Night Live is adding three new players to its cast.
Chris Redd (Disjointed), Heidi Gardner (SuperMansion) and Chicago improv comedian Luke Null will join the show in the season 43 premiere.
Redd is most well-known for the movie Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and the Netflix series Disjointed. If the comedy gets a season two, he will leave the show due to his SNL gig.
Gardner’s experience can be found in voiceover work for SuperMansion and Bratz, while this is Null’s first big TV job.
SNL is shoring up its ranks after the departures of Sasheer Zamata, Vanessa Bayer and Bobby Moynihan.
Deadline is also reporting that the long-running sketch comedy has added Sam Jay, Gary Richardson, Erik Marino, Andrew Dismukes, Steven Castillo, Claire Friedman and Nimesh Patel to its writer’s room.
Upcoming hosts include Wonder Woman herself Gal Gadot and The Big Sick’s Kumail Nanjiani.
Saturday Night Live’s 43rd season premieres Saturday, Sept. 30 at 11:30 pm ET with Ryan Gosling as host and Jay-Z as musical guest. The show will once again air live across all time zones this season.
