Another one bites the dust!
Paul Brittain, who has been a featured player on Saturday Night Live since September of 2010, has left the sketch comedy series, and will not even be sticking around long enough to say good-bye on the Channing Tatum-hosted episode airing this weekend!

With news that MacGruber's Will Forte is leaving SNL, sources have confirmed that the sketch comedy show has hired three new comics: Vanessa Bayer, Paul Brittain, and Taran Killam (left to right above).
All three comedians come from an improv comedy background and in keeping Lorne Michaels' tradition alive, they all hail from Chicago.
You may recognize Killam as he's had a recurring role on How I Met Your Mother and has appeared on Scrubs.
Those are some big shoes they're filling! Good luck to the new cast members!
