Beck Bennett, most recently from AT&T’s “It’s Not Complicated” campaign has been selected as one of the newest SNL cast members. This comes just a few months after Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiig, and Jason Sudeikis all announced they were leaving after the 2012-2013 season. Pretty big shoes to fill.
We have confidence that Beck is gonna do an awesome job on the show. The AT&T campaign, ironically directed by Lonely Island star and SNL writer Jorma Taccone, became one of the biggest viral hits of the past year according to Ad Age. Bennett also has a history of funny viral videos with his sketch group Good Neighbor, which features another addition to SNL – Kyle Mooney.
