    I just don't like him- too much singing and dancing.

    I wish Orville would bring back "The Falconer," though "MacGruber" has been a suitable replacement.

    My thoughts on the cast (if a x appears next to somebody they should leave to me)

    Fred Armisen - One of the best on the show but coming into his prime in his 7th season isnt a good thing. Is obama impression is bad. I see him lasting 3-5 more seasons left

    Will Forte - x - annoying, has way to many unfunny sketchs were he either sings or dances. 2-4 more seasons left

    Bill Hader - hasnt done much seems to me like the extra cast meber who has never really done muchidk is it just me?

    Darrell Hammond - x? - can do any impression, but since he has done bill clinton 80 times maybe it's time to start planning ur depature, it bothers me that he is in none to one sketch an episode 1-4 seasons left

    Seth Meyers - x - he cant do an impression and over thinks he's funny, he is great writer but not infront of the camera. Quit as a cast member and become a full time staff writer 1-3 seasons left

    Bobby Moynihan - hasnt fully done alot but i hope to see more from the newer staff who i hope will save the show 5-7 seasons left

    Amy Poehler - planned x - not really funny but brings a perkyniss that no other cast member brings which will be missed since she is in every sketch and has done much more than any cast member on the show now

    Andy Samberg - his digitial shorts are delcing but might get better 4-6 more seasons

    Jason Sudeikis x - i never really saw hiim funny, should go back to being a writer than a cast member 4-6 more seasons

    Kenan Thompson - x -can only do an impression of cosby not funny and annoying 1-3 more seasons

    Kristen Wiig - the female will ferrell, can make bad material funny and the best cast member on the show 3-5 more seasons

    Casey Wilson - can be annoying but i plan to see more 5-7 more seasons

    Darrell Hammond is great with every impression!

    It's like what Conner said in the other thread- if there was any cast news, you'd know by now. Besides, it's not the first time the cast has only had two women.

    Belushi has got to be the ALL TIME GREATEST, at least in my book.From, Jake and Elwood Blues to The Killer Bees , , to Samuri Tailor,and even the fat Olympic runner who likes the little chocolate doughnuts,, there'll never be another like that . But presently,, I Fricking LOVE Kristin Wiig, She's a scene stealer in every skit I've ever seen, and absolutely hysterical from her Target Lady to my favorite Penelope. Anyway, , that's my 2cents worth . . .Thanks.

    They referenced it in Kutcher/Barkley but unfortunately have not brought it back yet.

    The last "Falconer" was almost three years ago. Maybe they ran out of ideas.

    Has he ever done a Christopher Walken impression on the show? I'm a fan of his impressions, but I remember when Walken last hosted they did a scene where everyone did him and Hammond's wasn't that great (I think I liked Bill Hader's the most). Just wondering if he ever did it outside that episode.

    I loved that Skittles commercial parody Mohr did as Walken on Conan.
