"Saturday Night Live" has shed two freshman and one veteran from its sprawling cast. Featured players Noel Wells and John Milhiser and long-time cast member Nasim Pedrad will not return to "SNL" in Fall 2015, this according to Deadline.com. When asked to comment on the news by HuffPost Entertainment, a representative for NBC said that the network does not discuss casting changes on the show.
Wells and Milhiser joined the "SNL" cast as featured players in 2013; Pedrad has been with the show since 2009. Her departure is at least in part due to her co-starring role on Fox's "Mulaney," which debuts this fall.
