The Comic’s Comic is reporting that Taran Killam, Paul Brittain and Vanessa Bayer look set to join SNL for its 36th Season. The first is Paul Brittain, an iO Chicago performer, the next is Taran Killam, a Groundlings performer and the last is Vanessa Bayer, a Chicago improviser with iO and Second City Tour Co.
More on these three coming up. Just FYI, The Comic’s Comic was the one who broke the news that Jenny Slate & Nasim Pedrad were cast last year, so you can trust him.
Taran Killam (HIMYM, Scrubs) is a smart fit, he does many, many impressions. The cast is going to be huge.
