Bobby Moynihan to Exit SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE After Nine Seasons
ET reports that veteran SNL star Bobby Moynihan will leave the long-running sketch comedy show after nine seasons. The news comes as the comic's new comedy pilot, ME, MYSELF & I, has been picked up to series by CBS and will debut this Fall.
At yesterday's CBS' Upfront presentations, Moynihan tried to joke his way out of responding ET's question as to whether he would be working on both his new sitcom and SNL at the same time. "That's not terrifying at all!" Moynihan teased, adding, "No, we'll see."
ME, MYSELF & I features Moynihan in a comedy about the defining moments in one man's life over three distinct periods - as a 14-year-old in 1991, at age 40 in present day and at age 65 in 2042. During these pivotal periods of yesterday, today and tomorrow, Alex always finds a way to move forward with determination and humor, knowing his LIFE STORY isn't defined by the bad things that happen to him, but instead by how he chooses to deal with them. Dan Kopelman, Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and Randall Einhorn (pilot only) are executive producers for Kapital Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. Einhorn directed the pilot.
ME, MYSELF & I stars Bobby Moynihan (Alex, present day), Jack Dylan Grazer (Alex, 1991), Brian Unger (Ron, 1991, present day), Jaleel White (Darryl, present day), Kelen Coleman (Abby, 2042), Skylar Gray (Abby, present day), Christopher Paul Richards (Justin, 1991), Mandell Maughan (Maggie, 1991), Reylynn Caster (Nori, 1991), with Sharon Lawrence (Eleanor, 2042) and John Larroquette (Alex, 2042).
