‘SNL’ Shakeup: Cast Member Paul Brittain Leaving Immediately

Paul Brittain SNLSNL 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.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
