With his new sitcom, "Me, Myself & I", officially added to the CBS fall schedule, longtime "Saturday Night Live" player Bobby Moynihan is bidding adieu to 30 Rock. But all gigs eventually come to an end and as many SNL cast members do eventually, Moynihan has chose to leave the show.
On screen, Moynihan was best known for his impersonations of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Food Network personality Guy Fieri and characters like Drunk Uncle.
And: "Moynihan, like so many "SNL" veterans, developed his own stable of recurring characters, including Drunk Uncle and secondhand reporter Anthony Crispino".
Moynihan has been tapped as one of the three leads of the upcoming CBS comedy "Me, Myself and I".
The 40-year-old comedian will leave "Saturday Night Live" this weekend after nine years, according to Deadline. Current castmate Kenan Thompson shares the record of 14 seasons on SNL with Darrell Hammond, and if Thompson returns for SNL's 43rd season, he'll be longest tenured SNL castmember of all time. Dana Honor executive produces with Kopelman and Kaplan.
Saturday's new episode of the series, which will be the Season 42 finale, will be Moynihan's final show - the actor won't be coming back next season. It will be hosted by Dwayne Johnson with musical guest Katy Perry.
