Saturday Night Live is losing another key player for season 42.
Featured player Jon Rudnitsky is leaving the Lorne Michaels-produced veteran sketch show, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The stand-up comedian and Groundlings alum joined the series in season 41. He performed a sketch in which he portrayed Anderson Cooper serving as a moderator for a Democratic presidential debate (Cooper wasn’t a fan) as well as a Dirty Dancing bit (which was better received).
Rudnitsky was the only cast addition for season 41 of SNL. He joins Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah as key members of the ensemble sketch show who will not be returning for season 42 as the series is expected to add a few new faces for its fall debut.
