Meet SNL's five new rumored cast members


Five young comedians are reportedly joining this season’s cast of “Saturday Night Live,” and you may know a few of them already.

Like Beck Bennett, the roundtable host in the adorably funny AT&T “It’s Not Complicated” commercials.

“The correct answer is ‘infinity plus infinity.’ What about ‘infinity times infinity?’” (Via YouTube / ShareATT)

Or Jimmy Kimmel’s man-on-the-street interviewer Kyle Mooney, who’s also guest starred on shows like “Wilfred” and “Parks and Rec.” (Via YouTube / GoodNeighborStuff)

Also stepping on the stage is “SNL” writer Mike O’Brien, creator of the “7 Minutes in Heaven” series on YouTube. He’s been behind the scenes for the past four seasons. (Via YouTube / 7minutesinheaven)

And YouTube Zooey Deschanel impersonator Noel Wells, the only woman to join the cast this year. (Via YouTube / NoelKristi)

Perhaps the least known to enter the “SNL” family is stand-up and sketch comedian John Milhiser. He may not have as big a following as the others, but we’re pretty sure that’s about to change. (Via YouTube / John Milhiser)

OK, OK … to be perfectly honest, NBC hasn’t confirmed anything about the hires, and their names have been floating in the “SNL” rumor pool for a while. But if these are the newbies, they’ll have some pretty big shoes to fill and not a lot of time left to prepare.

“Still no word on how producer Lorne Michaels plans to replenish the Not Ready for Prime Time Players lineup. SNL lost Bill Hader, Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis in May and will see Seth Meyers depart, probably in December, as he readies his own late-night talk show, due in February.” (Via USA Today)

The 39th season of SNL begins Sept. 28, with Tina Fey hosting and a performance by Arcade Fire.
