This weekend’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live” will be the last episode for Bill Hader as a cast member.
There’s talk that fellow longtime players Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen may also not be back next fall; SNL mastermind Lorne Michaels says he believes they have not made up their minds. Seth Meyers is leaving at the end of this year to host NBC’s Michaels-produced chat show “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
Hader, who played Al Pacino on his first SNL episode on Oct. 1, 2005, already has a busy career outside SNL. Like Kristen Wiig, he’s appeared in a lot of movies produced by Judd Apatow. His big-screen credits include “Knocked Up,” “Superbad,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Pineapple Express,” “This Is 40,” “You, Me and Dupree,” “Hot Rod,” “Night at the Museum 2,” “Tropic Thunder,” “Adventureland,” “Year One,” “Scott Pilgrim,” “Paul,” and “Men in Black 3.” According to IMDb, he has at least seven more movies filming or awaiting release.
Hader also does a ton of non-SNL TV, including “The Venture Bros.” (inheriting the role of Richard Impossible), “South Park,” “30 Rock,” “Funny Or Die,” “NTSF:SD:SUV::,” “Bob’s Burgers” and “Portlandia.”
