This week’s season finale will cap Hader’s eight-year tenure on the show. The Times reports that Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis’ status on the show is also in question, and of course Seth Meyers will depart for ‘Late Night’ by at least February.
Lorne Michaels on Hader:
“In terms of intelligence and talent, he was in that same tradition,” Mr. Michaels said in a telephone interview. “He was so completely committed to the art of it and enough a student of it that there’s something strikingly original. He didn’t explode onto the air, but gradually he found his voice, and that became a huge thing.”
Mr. Hader said: “My joke was, we’ll start singing ‘Ruby Tuesday’ and just say bye to Kristen again. I can just do a little wave at goodnights, and that signifies it.”
