Andy Samberg has a supportive message for anyone fired from "Saturday Night Live". Amid reports that the show let go some first-year actors, the "SNL" alum who now stars on FOX's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" wants ousted cast members to know that there's is life after "SNL".
"If you were hired... there's something good going on with you," the funnyman said in front of reporters at TCA summer press tour during a panel for his sitcom, "so whether or not the timings right doesn't mean you're not gonna go on to great things."
Samberg, who was a featured player on "SNL" from 2005 to 2012, said his schedule's "much better" now, adding, " 'SNL' is notoriously bad for a relationship."
The 35-year-old Golden Globe winner returned to "SNL" earlier this year as a host. Speaking of the difference about being the host and the cast member, he jokingly said, "When I order a coffee it comes sooner because I don't have to wait for 30 other people's coffees. Other than that it's almost exactly the same." He also didn't worry about being cut from the episode.
In addition to Brooks Wheelan who has announced his dismissal earlier this week, Noel Wells and John Milhiser are reportedly not returning for the next season of "SNL". The show has not commented on the reports as casting decisions are expected to be officially announced in August.
