Bill Hader, known for his impersonations of celebs like Clint Eastwood and Julian Assange, has announced that he’ll be leaving “Saturday Night Live” when this season is over.
Hader is also a popular face in films and has written for “South Park”. He’s also found success doing voice work in films like “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs”. For now, he hasn’t said what his plans are for the immediate future, just that he feels it’s his time to go.
“It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point,” Hader said. “It got to a point where I said, ‘Maybe it’s just time to go.’”
Hader will be a big lose for the show, which has struggled to maintain a consistent audience base in recent years following the departure of Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey. Besides his impersonations, he also did original characters like “Stefon” and “Herb Welch”.
