Hey MacGruber, Will Forte is leaving.. (EXPLOSION!)

Will-forte_240 Yes, it’s true, Will “MacGruber” Forte won’t be back this season on “Saturday Night Live.”

Said his publicist: “After eight great seasons, Will has made the decision to move on from SNL to pursue new opportunities. He is eternally grateful to Lorne and all of the incredible people he worked with over the years.”

Forte, who joined “SNL” in 2002, is probably best known for his clumsy take on “MacGyver,” the shaggy-haired “MacGruber” (which was spun off into a feature this summer — which flopped at the box office). His portrayal of Peyton Manning is also considered among “SNL’s” best-ever clips.

Other Forte characters include “Tim Calhoun” and “The Falconer.”
