No Heshy, no! Versatile “Saturday Night Live” actress Nasim Pedrad is the latest castmember to leave the show. Pedrad, best known for her spot-on impersonations of Kim Kardashian, Insane Clown Posse-loving informercial star Lil Blaster, Ariana Huffington and smack-talking high schooler Shallon is splitting after five years to star in a Fox network show.
While Pedrad is jumping on her own to appear in the upcoming prime-time series “Mulaney,” (executive-produced by “SNL” boss Lorne Michaels), Deadline reported that first-year veterans John Milhiser’s and Noel Wells’ contracts were not renewed.
Their exits follow the loud, funny goodbye from fellow short-timer Brooks Wheelan, who poked fun at getting fired from the show on Monday. Wells made a mark for her Lena Dunham and Emma Stone impressions, while Milhiser saw limited action in the second half of the season and is known for his takes on Jon Cryer, Matthew McConaughey and Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong.
At least Cryer will miss him.
