SNL just lost one of its more promising new cast members. Paul Brittain is leaving the sketch show, effective immediately. This means no more James Franco impressions or the delight that is Lord Wyndemere (don’t worry, there’s a video below to commemorate his contributions to the SNL landscape). According to EW, Brittain’s exit is an amicable one; it’s simply a move to allow him to pursue other projects. The comedian has been a featured player on the series since 2010, but in 2011, he really began to make his mark with a few memorable characters.
Hopefully these other projects will come our way soon, because life without Lord Wyndemere is going to be a little drab.
