Leslie Jones Joins SNL Cast


It seems like I just might have a magic touch when it comes to new "Saturday Night Live" cast members. Earlier this year, I got a chance to attend Variety's 10 Comics to Watch show at Just For Laughs. One of the show's highlights was Pete Davidson, who later scored a deal with the late night show as one of their featured players. Next to join the list was Michael Che, former "The Daily Show" corespondent Weekend Update's newest anchor, whom we met a the movie premiere for Chris Rock's "Top Five". However, it seems as if Che wasn't the only "Top Five" cast member to join the show...

Earlier today, it was announced that Leslie Jones has officially been added to the show's cast! Leslie has previously appeared in a couple of Weekend Update segments, in which she absolutely killed it!

Here is a picture of Leslie and Mr. Wavvy at the "Top Five" premiere in Toronto, which took place on their (shared) birthday (Ms. Jones can be seen in the back behind JB Smoove)!


Congrats Leslie!
