While it was rumored that SNL cast member Bobby Moynihan would be leaving the show after his ninth season, official confirmation finally came on Wednesday evening that Saturday's finale would be Moynihan's last.
The reason his departure is no surprise: Moynihan stars in a new comedy called "Me, Myself & I", which got picked up this week by CBS.
Among Moynihan's most popular SNL impersonations have been Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Snooki, Guy Fieri and Ted Cruz, along with such original characters as Drunk Uncle and secondhand reporter Anthony Crispino.
Moynihan wraps up his nine-season SNL run this Saturday, and the news made us all misty-eyed and sentimental about his Drunk Uncle character.
