dickinson cast john mulaney

John Mulaney will wax poetic as Henry David Thoreau in Dickinson, the new Apple TV+ series that asks: “What if Emily Dickinson was a wild party animal who got rowdy with all her hot friends?” Specific details about Mulaney’s part are non-existent at this point, but Thoreau, the author of Walden (among other things) was Dickinson’s 5th cousin once removed (I looked that up), so there’s that to consider.

Saturday Night Live Stefon Movie

Back when Bill Hader was a cast member on Saturday Night Live, the character he became best known for playing was undoubtedly Stefon. The nightlife expert frequently appeared on Weekend Update to offer advice on New York’s hottest locations for various holidays and activities (even though he initially appeared in a completely different sketch when he was first created).

When Hader left the series in 2013, he was sent off with a wedding to his boy-toy Seth Meyers. Stefon has returned a couple times since then just for fun, but according to former SNL writer and Stefon co-creator and John Mulaney (who just hosted SNL again recently), there was once the nugget of an idea to give Stefon more screen time with his own movie. Find out about the Saturday Night Live Stefon movie below. Read More »
