Question by Rachel: Who do you think will leave Saturday Night Live after this season?
We know Paul Brittain is out of SNL; I wouldn't be surprised to see the likes of Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Kenan Thompson, and Andy Samberg leaving as well. Do you see a completely different SNL cast in 2012-2013 season? Thanks!

Well it seems like Taran Killam has been getting into more and more sketches by the week. I also noticed last night that Paul Brittain isn't on the show anymore.
If I had to guess...everyone will stay. Because the 2012 election is coming up. So that means that Fred Armisen would have to stick around to play Obama... same with Jason Sudeikis playing Mitt Romney.
Andy Samberg is still relatively young and I think his best is yet to come.... Keenan Thompson is somewhat of an enigma. I think he'll be with SNL for a long time.
If anyone is leaving... it'll be Kristen Wiig. The cast leans so heavily on her, it's kind of ridiculous. I think having her gone would force some of the other cast members to really take the lead. Personally, I love Kristen Wiig. But it seems like she's run her course.
