Will Forte Leaving SNL

Comedian Will Forte will not be returning to Saturday Night Live this fall for the show’s 36th season.

Two people close to Forte confirmed the news to the New York Times.

According to one of the sources, the split was amicable and Forte left to show to pursue outside projects.

Forte joined SNL in 2002 and is notably known for his MacGruber, The Falconer and Tim Calhoun characters.

The 40-year-old actor is already attached to a number of upcoming prodcutions, including A Good Old Fashioned Orgy and the much-hyped 2011 Jonas and Josh Pate’s comedy Party Boys.

Will you miss Forte on SNL?
