NBC has announced that three new featured players will make their debut on Saturday Night Live when the season premiere airs this weekend on September 30 with host Ryan Gosling. It’s likely that you haven’t heard of these names before, but we’ll fill you in on each of the new Saturday Night Live cast members below. Read More »
