Turns out the title of ABC’s jolly, fast-talking sitcom was prescient (except for the “happy” part). The net’s
When the SNL season ends this Saturday, Bill Hader will be packing up Stefon and all those other characters (like the hilarious Italian talk show host, Vinnie Vedecci) he inhabited and leaving the show. “It was a hard decision,” he told the New York Times. “It got to a point where I said, ‘Maybe it’s just time to go.’” The 34-year-old actor joined SNL in 2005 as a featured performer and was promoted to a full cast member the next year, soon becoming a show favorite for his accurate and eccentric celebrity impersonations and his original characters, which earned him an Emmy nomination for supporting actor in a comedy series. “In terms of intelligence and talent,” said SNL producer Lorne Michaels, “he was in that same tradition [as John Belushi], He was so completely committed to the art of it and enough of a student of it that there’s something strikingly original. He didn’t explode onto the air, but gradually he found his voice, and that became a huge thing.” He will be missed.
Playing Norman Bates’ older brother, Dylan, Max Thieriot is always the takeaway from A&E’s Bates Motel series.
It’s a done deal. When Leno finally gets booted from the Tonight Show and Jimmy Fallon takes over in 2014, Saturday Night Live‘s head writer and “Weekend Update” anchor Seth Meyers will sit at Fallon’s vacated Late Night desk. Forever. “We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation,” said NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt “His years at SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise.” Meyers, who will stay with SNL through its fall season, said: “I only have to work for Lorne [Michaels] for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car. 12:30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice.” (via THR)

Before his eponymous Drag Race season finale airs tonight on Logo, RuPaul talks to the New York Times about a few things, including his career, gay rights, how a show like Drag Race became possible, what he’s working on now, and his partner of 19 years. Good stuff. (via towleroad)
