He’s saying goodbye to SNL… and hello to CBS.
Saturday Night Live cast member Bobby Moynihan is leaving the show after a nine-season run, our sister site Deadline is reporting. This Saturday’s season finale of the long-running NBC sketch show, hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, will be Moynihan’s final episode.
He already has his next gig lined up, though: Moynihan will star in the new CBS fall comedy Me, Myself & I, which just got an official pickup this week. The series follows a guy named Alex through three time periods in his life, with Moynihan playing the 40-year-old version of Alex. (John Larroquette co-stars as the 65-year-old Alex.) In fact, his SNL departure was pretty much assumed once he signed on to star in Me, Myself & I, as we reported back in March.
Moynihan joined SNL back in 2008, with memorable impressions of celebrities like Chris Christie, Guy Fieri and Snooki, along with the Weekend Update staple character Drunk Uncle.
