The writing has been on the wall ever since ‘Bridesmaids’ became the breakout comedic hit of 2011 and earned Kristen Wiig an Oscar nomination. Rumors swirled that the uber-talented comedian would depart ‘Saturday Night Live’ after seven seasons and try her luck at a full-time, feature-film career. The buzz must have reached deafening levels, because Wiig took the time to address the hearsay on Alec Baldwin’s NPR show ‘Here’s the Thing.’
'Saturday Night Live' is an institution at this point, and will never leave as long as there's no real competition. But it does go through stages. It looks like this year will end another era, as it's being reported that Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis will all leave at the end of the year.
From Gilda Radnor to Jane Curtin and Maya Rudolph, there's no denying that 'Saturday Night Live' has seen the upbringing of some legendary female comedic talent over the years. Yet this past season, it's seemed like Kristen Wiig has shouldered quite a bit of the load, so with Wiig potentially in the twilight of her 'SNL' years, who might the show next turn to for some girl power?
The decision whether or not to procreate is one of the biggest ones we'll ever make. Much as it is recommended not to go to the supermarket when hungry, lest you make a poor choice, you should also put aside that call to the vasectomy clinic after a long flight amidst screaming toddlers.
The two leads in Jennifer Westfeldt's peculiarly entertaining film 'Friends With Kids', Adam Scott and Westfeldt herself, are platonic best friends who snark their way through life but have a genuine desire for offspring. The problem is they see how the li'l rugrats are ruining the lives of their married friends. Neither Scott nor Westfeldt has found “their one,” but biology being what it is, Westfeldt doesn't have that much time left to be choosy. What they need is a high concept solution that will lead to foibles and, eventually, a fuller appreciation of one another!
