If you’re hoping that next season, NBC will completely retool SNL and fill it with nothing but skits starring Stefon (they can call it Stefonly Night Live)… Well, I have to break your boner of dreams, because that’s not happening. Stefon (real name: William Hader) told The New York Times (Side note: In the past 12 hours, I’ve been posting so much stuff from The New York Times. Does that me smarter or them trashier?) that he’ll take his final bow on the SNL stage during Saturday’s season finale. Bill Hader has been on SNL for 8 years and he says that it’s time for him to officially, once and for all quit that bitch:
“It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point. It got to a point where I said, ‘Maybe it’s just time to go.’ ”
Seth Meyers is leaving after next season to do Late Night and the Times says that Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis might also follow Bill Hader out the exit door.
The good news is that now Bill Hader has time to make a road trip movie starring himself as Stefon and himself as Lindsey Buckingham.
