Meet Kate McKinnon, Newest 'Saturday Night Live' Cast Member
Saturday Night Live is known for churning out some of our biggest and funniest stars. Just look at Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler for starters!
Well, this shouldn't be any pressure on Kate McKinnon or anything but she's the newest addition to SNL's cast and will probably make her first appearance as early as next Saturday night, as reported by E! Online. Sofia Vergara will be hosting that night.
The 27-year-old comic appeared in the first three seasons of the Big Gay Sketch Show which was produced by Rosie O'Donnell. She's the first out lesbian to join the cast since 1985.
There may be a reason why the show added a woman so close to the end of the season.
According to Deadline, Kristen Wiig will make a decision about her future at the show later this year so the show may end up being one woman shorter in the cast.
