Emmy Laybourne has joined Molly Shannon, Will Ferrell and Elaine Hendrix in the cast of SNL Studios “Superstar,” now in production in Toronto.

Laybourne will play Helen, the irreverent best friend of Mary Katherine Gallagher, a character Shannon developed on “Saturday Night Live.”

“Superstar” will be distributed by Paramount, through a deal with NBC-TV and producer Lorne Michaels.

Laybourne’s credits include the role of Tasha on the MTV sitcom “Apartment 2F.” She has also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Viva Variety” and “Premium Blend.”

The deal was brokered by Laybourne’s reps at the William Morris Agency and manager Maureen Taran of the Barry Katz Entertainment Group.
