There have been a number of departures from the long-running late-night series this year, including Bill Hader, Seth Meyers (who'll leave to replace former "SNL" cast member Jimmy Fallon on "Late Night" when Fallon moves over to "Tonight") and Fred Armisen. But which Possibly Now Ready for Prime-Time Players will soar to Adam Sandler-like heights, and which will go down in disgraceful flames of fail worthy of "It's Pat"?
TheWrap looks at what the most recent "Saturday Night Live" graduates have in the hopper in search of some answers.
Sudeikis, who in his 10 years on "SNL" became known for portraying Mitt Romney and Joe Biden, stars in the upcoming comedy "We're the Millers" (out Aug. 7) along with Jennifer Aniston and Emma Roberts, and will reprise his role as accountant Kurt Buckman in "Horrible Bosses 2," due next year. There's also "Relanxious," a comedy about a woman prone to anxiety attacks who falls for a guy who suffers from agoraphobia; he stars with Olivia Wilde, Brie Larson and fellow "SNL" evacuee Fred Armisen. Sudeikis appears alongside Rose Byrne and Joe Manganiello in the romantic comedy "Tumbledown," about a woman struggling to get on with her life after the death of her husband.
After eight seasons on "Saturday Night Live," the man who gave the world Stefon – and what's probably among the seven best Vincent Price imitations ever – decided to strike out on his own. Hader's post-"SNL" plate is a full one. He'll star with fellow "SNL" evacuee Kristen Wiig in the comedy "The Skeleton Twins," and is appearing alongside another "Saturday Night Live" alum, Andy Samberg, in the comedy "The To Do List." There's also his role in the upcoming Larry David/Jon Hamm HBO comedy "Clear History," which premieres Aug. 10.
Hader will also be getting animated in his post-"SNL" months; he's returning to once again provide the voice of Flint Lockwood in "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2," and has a key role in the animated feature "Me and My Shadow." (He has a title role – as the voice of the shadow.) He also participates in Hulu's animated superhero comedy "The Awesomes," which is executive produced by – you guessed it – soon-to-be-former "SNL" cast member Seth Meyers.
