Tina Fey, Amy Poehler & More React to Sasheer Zamata SNL Casting

As BWW reported yesterday, Sasheer Zamata has been named SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE's newest cast member. A recent grad of the University of Virginia and Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre trainee, Zamata will make her SNL debut on the Jan. 18 episode, with Drake set to host and perform.

Today, USA Today shared some celebrity reactions to the casting news, including comments from SNL alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Check them out below!

On the attention recently turned towards SNL's lack of diversity prior to Zamata's hiring, Amy Poehler said to The Hollywood Reporter: "Ugh, I don't want to talk about this. Pass."

On the same subject, Tina Fey to The Hollywood Reporter: "I think Kerry Washington did such a great job on the [Nov. 2] show [in a sketch that addressed the controversy]. And you saw how great it was for Jay Pharoah to have someone playing Michelle Obama opposite [hisPresident Obama]. So I feel like they registered that really quickly and they've acted on it really quickly."
