Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, John Milhiser & Noël Wells Eyed As New ‘Saturday Night Live’ Cast Additions

Nellie Andreeva -

I hear comedian John Milhiser, actress Noël Wells and performers Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett have emerged as top candidates to join Saturday Night Live as new featured players this fall. No official announcement yet from the venerable late-night show but the four are heavily rumored to land the coveted SNL spots. All four have been performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, which has given SNL UCB co-founder and current cast members Bobby Moynihan and Kate McKinnon. Mooney and Bennett are members of sketch comedy group Good Neighbor, along with Nick Rutherford and filmmaker Dave McCary. The group has a deal at Comedy Central, which complicates a hire at SNL but I hear there is an effort to work things out. SNL has had success with members of comedy groups, most notably Andy Samberg and the Lonely Island. SNL boss Lorne Michaels had been on the hunt for fresh talent this summer as the sketch comedy show is facing a transitional season, with Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen departing in May and Seth Meyers slated to exit in late fall.
