No matter how it happened, 'SNL' vet Bill Hader has become one of the go-to voices for animation, as he leads this weekend's 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' as Flint Lockwood. On top of that, he's popular at Pixar and will do voice work for their upcoming films 'The Good Dinosaur' and 'Inside Out,' which we talked about, and the process of doing voiceover in the days while working on 'SNL' at night.
Hader is knee-deep in the animated world as he's working on this new season of 'South Park,' where you could hear his Alec Baldwin impression last night. Hader is also one of the preeminent nerds in pop culture, so we covered a lot of ground in our freewheeling discussion about his career and his taste.
Amid all the other major premieres this week and next, we'd nearly forgotten that 'SNL' will kick off its 39th season this coming Saturday, with alumni Tina Fey taking up hosting duties and Arcade Fire on the musical side. The first preview for Fey's return to the 'SNL' stage has arrived, but has everything already come unhooked?
The girl at the party you wish you hadn't started a conversation with is about to get a whole lot more informed. As 'SNL' shores things up for its 39th season, recruiting new members to replace the multiple departures of the previous year and those still to come, it would seem Seth Meyers has an heir apparent to the Weekend Update throne in that of regular contributor and current castmate Cecily Strong.
Forget all about that crap rumor of Lindsay Lohan hosting the 'SNL' season 39 premiere, much more credible intel points to an even crazier female figure: Lady Gaga! Unsurprising given her showy VMA performance and upcoming album release, the queen of weird will return to the 'SNL' stage in season 39 to perform, but is there any chance the star will take up hosting duties as well?
Regardless of troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan's most recent comeback attempts, abysmal reviews of 'The Canyons,' or Oprah Winfrey interviews, it would seem as if the Hollywood machine has shifted its eye toward tearing down more prominent young starlets. Could hosting the September 28 premiere of 'SNL' be the latest stop on Lohan's apparent comeback tour then, or has the rumor mill churned out another turd?
A Stefon movie will likely never happen; Bill Hader has said as much himself. But, there was a time, back when Hader was still at 'Saturday Night Live,' that a Stefon movie almost did happen and a few scenes were actually written. Could it have actually worked?
Late last night we heard that 'SNL' had begun the difficult process of staffing up in the wake of Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader's departures, with Seth Meyers to exit for his new ‘Late Night‘ gig in 2014, while the latest update swings in both directions. Existing writer and '7 Minutes in Heaven' performer Michael Patrick O'Brien will go in front of the camera as a featured player, while several new writers have joined the staff for season 39.
'SNL' seemingly suffered a major blow this past season in losing such series greats as Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader, with Seth Meyers to depart for his new 'Late Night' gig in 2014, so who's on deck to fill out the ranks? Sources say comedian John Milhiser, actress Noël Wells, and performers Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett are among the top contenders for the cast, but how official is it?
By the end of 'SNL''s most recent season, it had seemed apparent that longtime series stars Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis were bound to exit the sketch comedy show before the fall, though Sudeikis' departure was repeatedly implied to be unofficial, even debatable. Now, as the summer moves into its later months, the 'We're the Millers' star has officially confirmed his 'SNL' days are done.
