‘Saturday Night Live’ Officially Adds Six Featured Members

Saturday Night Live” has added six featured players to its cast: Beck Bennett (left), John Milhiser (middle), Kyle Mooney (right), Mike O’Brien, Noël Wells and Brooks Wheelan to the cast.

The names had been circulating for some time, but NBC made them official in a release this morning.

Bennett is perhaps the best known of the bunch, having appeared in a series of national spots for AT&T.

Mike O’Brien is moving from writer to cast member, while Tim Robinson (who made his debut last season) is doing the opposite.

Lorne Michaels revealed yesterday that second-year cast member Cecily Strong will co-host “Weekend Update” this season with Seth Meyers, who is departing the show in February to focus on “Late Night.”

The new season of “Saturday Night Live” kicks off Sept. 28, with Tina Fey as host and musical guest Arcade Fire.
