Cecily Strong Heads To “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update, Casts Noel Wells & Others

  • Weekend Update has a new host! “Saturday Night Live” named Cecily Strong — perhaps better known as Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started A Conversation With At A Party — as coanchor with Seth Meyers. Meyers is partially leaving “SNL” to host “Late Night,” where he is replacing Jimmy Fallon. “SNL” moved writer Mike O’Brien from the writing staff to the cast and moved cast member Tim Robinson to the writing staff. They’ve also added Beck Bennett, Brooks Wheelan, Kyle Mooney, John Milhiser, and only one woman, Noel Wells. [New York Times]
