kate mckinnon from SNL

Squee! Rumor has it “Saturday Night Live” has added a female cast member named Kate McKinnon and she is someone we already know and love around these parts! Kate starred in “Vag Magazine,” the kickass webseries that spoofed women who work at a feminist magazine, as the flaky girl Bethanny. Comedic Kate hails from the Upright Citizens Brigade, appeared on LOGO’s “The Big Gay Sketch Show” and has a movie coming out called “Hannah Has A Ho-Phase,” which sounds right up our alley. Deadline Hollywood reports that “SNL” head honcho Lorne Micheals has been auditioning several ladies for the show and Kate will debut next Saturday in the episode hosted by Sofia Vergara. The Mary Sue tells us that Kate is the first out lesbian to ever appear on the show and she’ll be the first openly gay cast member in 27 years. Mazel tov, Kate McKinnon — we’re a fan already. [Deadline HollywoodIMDBVag MagazineThe Mary Sue]

Lindsay Lohan’s much buzzed about hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend turned out to be a bit of a dud. The skits were weak and LiLo relied heavily on cue cards to remember her lines. There was one gem, however: “The Real Housewives Of Disney,” a spoof on the Bravo series. Watch the clip above and then check out an awesome GIF of the best moment after the jump! Keep reading »

Well lookie here, it appears that Lindsay Lohan’s promos for her episode of “Saturday Night Live” aren’t looking so bad after all. This weekend will be her fourth time hosting, so she knows what she’s getting into, and supposedly has told producers that “nothing is off limits.” Hopefully they’ll be mildly kind (while still packing a punch). We’re rooting for you Lindz — though we’re really not sure why! [Pop Culture Brain]

Maya Rudolph Kills It On “Saturday Night Live,” Justin Timberlake Nails Bon Iver Impression

Watch Video

Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and New York Post, and I smile and maybe a giggle or two pops out. But when Maya Rudolph hosted the show this weekend — featuring special guests Amy Poehler and Justin Timberlake — I cracked the hell up. 

Above, Blue Ivy Carter meets Prince, Taylor Swift, Brangelina, and Bon Iver, portrayed perfectly by Timberlake. And after the jump, more sketches I loved. Keep reading »
