That makes four cast anchors who have left in the last two years, with Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg as the two who left last season. Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen are also rumored to be leaving, a rumor which was made stronger by Jay Pharoah's since-deleted tweet about it.
Is the "SNL" cast in crisis? Maybe.
The Chicago Tribune makes the case that the mass exodus may turn out to be like a forest fire -- "seemingly devastating" damage that actually has a "restorative effect" on the show, citing the departures in 1986 that opened the door for Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman and Kevin Nealon, or in 1995 that ushered in the Will Ferrell-Sheri Oteri-Darrell Hammond era. »

Is Saturday Night Live losing another fan-favorite castmember? Following Bill Hader's announcement that he was leaving the long-running NBC sketch comedy and Fred Armisen's send-off during the season finale, it seems as though Jason Sudeikis will also not be returning to SNL next season, if a tweet from castmate Jay Pharoah is any indication. "Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on," Pharoah tweeted on Sunday before deleting the message. When we chatted with Sudeikis on the red carpet at the premiere of Epic on Saturday, he played coy about his future on SNL, saying, "I'm not thinking »
A snail's journey from slow beginnings to the Indianapolis 500 is chronicled in the second international trailer for Turbo. Ryan Reynolds voices the title character, who dreams of one day being fast like his idol, five-time Indy 500 champion Guy Gagne (Bill Hader). When a mishap gives him the speed he has always wanted, this snail sets off on a journey to make his dreams come true. In addition, DreamWorks Animation has released a poster, which pokes a bit of fun at Universal's Fast & Furious franchise.
Turbo - International Trailer 2
Turbo comes to theaters July 19th, 2013 and stars Snoop Lion, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michael Peña, Ryan Reynolds. The film is directed by David Soren. »
In what is basically a superhero movie repurposed for a mollusk, DreamWorks Animation has Turbo coming this summer. Ryan Reynolds voices the snail who finds himself with the gift of super speed after a chance encounter with some nitrous fuel liquid. In this new international trailer, we get an entertaining glimpse into the mundane lives of the slow-moving snails, and also get introduced into some of the other snails in the film voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Rodriguez and more. This looks like it could be the second hit for Dwa after The Croods earlier this year. Watch now! Here's the new international trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Turbo from MSN UK (via ComingSoon): Turbo is directed by David Soren (who went from storyboard artist, to head of story, to directing the Merry Madagascar Christmas special) working from a script he co-wrote with Shrek Forever After scribe Darren Lemke. »

This weekend’s season finale of Saturday Night Live was an especially emotional episode, one that saw beloved cast members Bill Hader and Fred Armisen bid the show a fond adieu. Hader’s big farewell sketch was, of course, the epic wedding between Stefon and Seth Meyers, while Fred Armisen was joined by a calvacade of indie rock legends—Carrie Brownstein! Steve Jones! Aimee Mann! Michael Penn! J. Mascis!—for an emotional performance as his punk rocker alter ego Ian Rubbish.
Both Hader and Armisen were incredibly versatile performers whose contributions to the show will be greatly missed but, in particular, Armisen’s ability to consistently inject an element of musical theatricality into the show will be near impossible to replace. Before he became a SNL cast member back in 2002, Armisen was the drummer for an indie rock act called Trenchmouth, and he always managed to keep his foot in »

TCM Essentials Jr. Sundays beginning June 2 TCM, 8pm Et Like you, we’re lamenting the loss of Bill Hader on Saturday Night Live, where he filmed his final episode as a regular cast member last weekend. No more Stefon, no more Vincent Price, no more plasticine game-show hosts. Ah, but the diverse funnyman will still be on television, only this time just being himself. Hader returns June 2 for his third go-round as host of TCM Essentials Jr., a showcase of 13 films — one airing each Sunday — aimed at helping parents introduce their children to classic films. “It’s [...]

Is Jason Sudeikis leaving "Saturday Night Live" before the start of next season? A tweet from cast member Jay Pharaoh indicates that the comedian will be following his former "SNL" co-stars Bill Hader and Fred Armisen out the door.
Although there has been speculation that Sudeikis would end his 8-season "SNL" run after Season 38, nothing definitive has been said by either the actor or the show. Also, a lack of finality for Sudeikis in the season finale on Saturday (May 18) would seem to indicate that he is staying. Hader and Armisen, after all, got strong good-byes in the episode.
What is the evidence that Sudeikis is leaving "SNL" without any big farewell sketches? The Twitter post from Pharoah **https://twitter.com/JayPharoah read:
"Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on"
SNL castmember Jay Pharoah on Sunday tweeted (then quickly deleted) some sentiments that all but confirmed the third exit, stating: “Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on..” (Favstar captured the tweet before it was removed.)
NBC has yet to confirm or deny any Sudeikis-departure rumors, though »

If the reports are true that Fred Armisen is following in the footsteps of his friend and fellow cast member Bill Hader and leaving "SNL," then we may have just seen the comedian's last performance on the NBC comedy sketch show's May 18th season finale. In the final minutes of Saturday night's season-ender, Armisen reprised his role as punk-rock star Ian Rubbish, the British pink rock character he introduced just over a month ago in the "History of Punk." Joined by guest stars including Aimee Mann, Steve Jones, Kim Gordon, and fellow departing cast-mates »

In the first teaser for HBO's "Clear History," Larry David looks a lot different than the Larry David fans have come to know and love since "Curb Your Enthusiasm" debuted in the year 2000. The actor, writer and producer stars in the upcoming movie as a big-bearded former marketing executive plotting revenge against his former boss -- played by Jon Hamm -- who made millions from the electric car company the once owned.

Although Pharoah deleted his tweet, it remains archived on Favstar.
"Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on..," Pharoah tweeted.
The tweet was interpreted by many as confirmation of rumors that Sudeikis and Armisen are leaving the show. Hader's departure was confirmed last week by The New York Times, and both Armisen and Hader acted in farewell sketches on Sunday's final show of the season.
Sudeikis' status is the least clear. The "SNL" stalwart wasn't waving goodbye with Armisen and Hader during goodnights on Saturday's season finale, nor was he featured in any sort of farewell sketch. Last week, the New York Post reported Sudeikis »

As you probably know, Saturday was Bill Hader's final episode as a cast member of Saturday Night Live. Of course, Stefon got the loving farewell he deserved, but we wanted to say good-bye to more of his characters. For his eight seasons, Bill Hader has been one of the show's best and most innovative impressionists, so we decided to celebrate that by looking back at every impression. Over the course of his run, he's impersonated over 80 famous and not-so famous celebrities. Watch our video to remember how he not only upped the ante for oft-imitated famous people (Vincent Price, Al Pacino, Alan Alda, etc.) but also expertly aped those whom few have attempted (Andy Azula, CNN's Jack Cafferty, Dr. Oz, etc.). Just play this before and after every episode next season, and it will be like he never left. »

The first teaser trailer has been released for Greg Mottola‘s HBO film, Clear History, which show us Larry David in a much different fashion than we are used to seeing him in. According to EW, the film stars Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes, Danny McBride, and Michael Keaton – and primarily follows David’s character “a hipster marketing exec who sells all his shares at a start-up company, missing out on billions when the company’s new product—an electric car—becomes a smashing success.” This new 30-second teaser trailer doesn’t show us much, but with Motolla (Superbad, Adventureland) directing, I’m ready to watch.
Saturday Night Live might need to find a new Devil for next season.
After Saturday Night Live’s finale publicly bid farewell to both Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, some fans thought that meant Jason Sudeikis would in fact be returning. But according to a since-deleted tweet from cast member Jay Pharoah, that might not be the case. “Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on..” Pharoah wrote yesterday (captured by Splitsider) before deleting the message.

“Adventureland” director Greg Mottola has made himself something of a second home on television. He spent the early part of the new millennium directing episodes of shows like “Undeclared” and “Arrested Development,” and last year he directed a few episodes of HBO series “The Newsroom.” For his next film, he’s sticking with the legendary cable network, delivering the comedy “Clear History,” and a teaser for the film has arrived online. Starring Larry David, Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes and Danny McBride, the mostly-improvised film follows David as “a hipster marketing exec who sells all his shares at a start-up over a fight with his boss, only to miss out on billions when the company’s new product -- an electric car -- becomes a smashing success.” The teaser (via EW) is a paltry thirty seconds, but it’s worth it to see David looking like . . . well, »

The Croods took north of half a billion dollars at the box office, which was a big win for the studio coming off the back of Rise of the Guardians’ unfortunate loss last year, and I for one can’t wait to see what they have in store for us with Turbo.
The last we saw of the film was two great full-length trailers back in March, right around the time the studio were gearing up for The Croods. And now they’ve debuted another great UK trailer, featuring some great new footage.
