Paul Brittain, who joined Saturday Night Live in September 2010, is leaving the iconic sketch series, effective immediately.
An insider tells Entertainment Weekly that the comedian had "the opportunity to pursue other projects, and he and the show parted ways amicably.”
Meanwhile, on the hosting side of things, consider these two scoops:
- In promotion of 21 Jump Street, Jonah Hill will man the stage on March 10.
- On his podcast with SNL boss Lorne Michaels this week, Alec Baldwin hinted that Justin Bieber might host the show at some point this season. Yes, that Justin Bieber!
Channing Tatum will host this weekend's new edition of SNL.
