Will Forte Leaving 'Saturday Night Live'
By PopEater Staff Posted Aug 26th 2010 03:40PM
Kay said Forte is "eternally grateful" to 'SNL' producer Lorne Michaels and to "all the incredible people he worked with over the years" for his successful run on the show.
Forte joined the cast in 2002 as a featured player. Shortly after, he was upgraded to regular cast member and took over the role of then-president George W. Bush when Will Ferrell left the show and was featured as a number of recurring characters, including the Falconer and MacGruber.
The 40-year-old Forte starred in and co-wrote the 'SNL' spinoff film 'MacGruber,' which was released in May but bombed at the box office.
The NY Times reports that NBC has declined to comment on any potential replacements. The new season of 'SNL' kicks off September 25 at 11:30PM.
