Full SNL Cast Will Return This Fall; McCarthy and Baldwin to Host

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

After the shocking axing of Jenny Slate and Casey Wilson, SNL head honcho Lorne Michaels seems to have learned his lesson and will not be firing any cast members any time soon.

During the Television Critics Association press tour, Michaels announced that every single player from SNL’s 2010 season will return this fall, including newbie feature players Jay Pharoah, Paul Brittain, Taran Killiam, and Vanessa Bayer. And that’s “pretty cool” for those of us who love Bayer’s “Miley Cyrus Show” sketches.

Although the folks at SNL haven’t yet revealed which celeb will be hosting the September 15th season premiere, we can tell you that Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy and perennial fave Alec Baldwin are two of the celebs on deck for hosting duty at some point this season.

Oooo-wee! What up with that, indeed!
