The Axe Falls At SNL?

Waxing nostalgic on “when Saturday Night Live used to be good” has been far too easy for the last couple of years. Well, it’ll probably be even easier after an alleged cast reshuffling for the upcoming 32nd season:

Longtime cast members Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz and Kenan Thompson will likely exit the late-night comedy staple, according to a source close to the show. Still inconclusive are talks to bring back Darrell Hammond, famed for his impersonations of Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and other celebrities. Hammond joined the cast in 1995 and has had the longest tenure of any performer in the show’s history.

Meanwhile, SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels is expected to hand the reins of the signature fake-news segment “Weekend Update” – recently co-hosted by writer-performer Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – to a newer cast member, Jason Sudeikis.

Yeah, this could suck real bad…
