If you caught last night’s season finale of Saturday Night Live with host Mick Jagger, you saw a great show which featured the Rolling Stone rocker and funny gal mainstay, Kristen Wiig!  But what many did not know was this was to be Wiig’s last episode of SNL as she is leaving the series after seven years.

Though NBC had made no prior announcement of Kristen’s  departure, it comes as no surprise.  Wigg has starred in and co-wrote the hit comedy Bridesmaids, and even before that had notable roles in Friends With Kids, Paul, Adventureland and Knocked up among other films.  She has six more in various stages of development.

Wigg, whose limitless ability and unbelievable comedic timing and characterizations made her one of the all-time most popular performers in the history of SNL.  In the final segment of the season finale, it was time for Wiig’s emotional farewell which used a graduation premise to send her off in style.   As Arcade Fire played “She’s a Rainbow,” Wiig danced with each of her castmates in turn and tried to hold back tears.   She seemed particularly choked up when Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis cut in.  Finally, SNL leader Lorne Michaels had the last dance, and then the band segued into “Ruby Tuesday.”   Jagger, the band, and the cast sang the wistful tune together, joined by a few SNL vets: Amy Poehler Rachel Dratch and Chris Kattan as Wiig waved goodbye to the studio audience and those at home.

Of note, it has been reported that Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis are also expected to not return next season, although no official announcement has been made on that either!   Now after the jump watch the touching final segment with Wiig with her co-stars paying tribute to her and let us know if you will miss her talents on SNL!

I Didn’t catch on at first that Kristen was leaving the show, but it was a great send-off. She is an outstanding actress and probably the best comedian to ever be on SNL. She will be sorely missed, Good luck in Hollywood Kristen. Lookin forward to your new movies…

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
