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]

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]

Anna Faris "SNL" promo

Anyone else convinced Anna Faris on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend is going to be baller? I, for one, am psyched to see her loopy-loo goofy girl humor go head to head with Kristen Wiig. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll bring that hottie husband of hers, Chris Pratt, along for the ride, too. [NBC]

Miss Bossypants Herself To Host “SNL” This Weekend

Woo-hoo! Tina Fey is returning to her old stomping grounds, “Saturday Night Live,” this weekend. She will be hosting while Ellie Goulding, aka the chickadee who played the royal wedding, does the musical guest thing. “SNL” promos are never quite as funny as I want them to be, but still—just had to share these because we love Tina that much.

Bristol Palin Was This Close To Being Tina Fey’s Baby Sitter

“I can’t imagine Bristol would have been too psyched to [babysit] anyway; it was her 18th birthday, she was in New York City, and I had made a vicious joke about her a week earlier. But I appreciated the mom-ness of Mrs. Palin’s offer … I thanked her, saying Alice was too little to stay for the show.”

Tina Fey shares in her new book, Bossypants, that when Sarah Palin appeared on “SNL” in 2008, she offered up daughter Bristol Palin to babysit for Tina’s daughter, Alice, on set. This was, err, while Tina was doing her famous impersonation of her. The fact that she would still offer that is almost enough to make me like Sarah Palin. For a minute, anyway.

Jesse Eisenberg And Mark Zuckerberg Come Face-To-Face On “SNL”

Ahh, “Saturday Night Live.” Thank you for making our interwebian dreams come true. On Saturday’s episode, Jesse Eisenberg of “The Social Network” hosted and in his opening monologue, shared with us his knowledge of the menstrual cycle. Soon after, he was joined on stage by (Andy Samberg and) Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook creator who Jesse portrayed not-so-flatteringly in the movie. It was every bit as awkward as we all imagined. Oh, but I did have a few breakthroughs while watching: First, I realized that these two dudes share the second half of their last names. And also that Zuckerberg sounds a lot like a not-so-happy Kermit the Frog. Keep reading »

Scarlett Johansson Spoofs “The Millionaire Matchmaker”

The only thing better than an actual episode of “The Millionaire Matchmaker”? Scarlett Johansson’s impression of Patti Stanger on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. You might not think with that blond hair and alabaster skin that Scarlett could pull of a convincing Patti, but she nails that Jersey accent! [NBC.com] Keep reading »

Scarlett Johansson’s New “SNL” Promos

I’ve been pumped for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” since it was announced that Scarlett Johansson is hosting and Arcade Fire will be the musical guest. And the new promo, with Scarlett and Jason Sudeikis, gives me even higher expectations. This might be the best pairing ever. Keep reading »

Emma Stone And Andy Samberg Make Funnies


This week’s “Saturday Night Live” should be good. Not only is the musical guest Kings of Leon, whose new album we love, but the host is Emma Stone. This lady got her start on the VH1 reality series “In Search of the New Partridge Family.” And four short years later, she captured our hearts in “Easy A.” Maybe we needed a new redhead to fill the hole left by Lindsay Lohan?

Lindsay Lohan To Maybe Host “Saturday Night Live”

We’ve given Lindsay Lohan oodles of suggestions for things she can do to get her career back on track after her stint in jail, some time in rehab, and a possible baby stroller hit-and-run last week. But, apparently, Lindsay doesn’t need our help. LiLo is currently in talks to host “Saturday Night Live” on December 4th. Keep reading »
