'Saturday Night Live' Also Cuts Noel Wells and John Milhiser


'SNL' has reportedly decided not to renew these first-year players' contracts, while discussions are underway about Mike O'Brien's future on the show.

Two more actors are let go from "Saturday Night Live". After Brooks Wheelan announced his dismissal on Twitter on Monday, July 14, it's now reported that Noel Wells and John Milhiser are not returning for the next season either.

According to Deadline which first got the scoop, "SNL" decided not to renew the contracts of these two actors, who were added to the show as featured players last September. Wheelan was also a first-year actor on the show.

The future of other newcomers, including Beck Bennett, Mike O'Brien, Kyle Mooney, Sasheer Zamata and Colin Jost, is still unknown. Discussions are reportedly underway about whether O'Brien, who had been a writer on the sketch series before joining the cast, will return to the writing staff or continue to have on-screen presence if he stays on.

Back in June, Nasim Pedrad, who had been on the show for five seasons, hinted that she wouldn't be returning either as she's now committed to FOX's new show "Mulaney".

"SNL" has not commented on the casting shake-up. Casting decisions are expected to be officially announced in August. "SNL" creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels said last month, "There will be changes this year."
