OMG!!! Please say it isn’t so. Who’s going to play Whoopi Goldberg for future skits on Saturday Night Live? #travesty

According to TMZ, the show’s most seasoned active performer is planning to leave at the end of the 2014-15 season. Their sources say Kenan Thompson wanted out last season, but producer Lorne Michaels convinced him to stay since there was massive cast changes last year.

The 36-year-old joined the show in 2003, making him the most tenured African-American cast member in the show’s 40-year history. Reportedly, he wants to move to the West Coast with his wife and new baby to pursue new opportunities.

Will you miss Kenan? What’s your favorite performance of his? Weigh in below after reliving his hilarious impersonation of Whoopi.

UPDATE: EW.com reached out to an SNL spokesperson. They said the report is “inaccurate as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season.”

For the past several months, everyone and their agent has been reportedly linked to star in Season 2 of True Detective. In Colin Farrell’s case, those rumors are true. In an interview with Ireland’s Sunday World, the 38-year-old confirmed his involvement with the hit HBO series.

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”

“I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

Magic Mike XXL Finds Its Female Lead In Amber Heard

If there was a weak link in the first Magic Mike film, I would have to say it was Channing Tatum’s love interest. No disrespect to Cody Horn, but she just felt out of place in the film and wasn’t at all captivating. I’m a fan of Amber Heard so hopefully, she brings more to the table. No details about her role have been disclosed, but she joins the production which is currently filming.

Darrell Hammond appeared on Saturday Night Live for 14 years before leaving in 2009. This Fall, he returns to his former stomping grounds.

The 58-year-old has been tapped as the new announcer for the long-running staple. He replaces Don Pardo who’s voiced the series for decades until his death at 96-years-old in August. Hammond has previously on occasion filled in when Pardo had laryngitis. Hammond spoke to USA Today about his new gig.

“He was a lovely person. When he passed, they wanted me; it felt right for me to be the one to replace him,” Hammond tells USA Today. “It’s been a very improbable life; I didn’t expect something like this, but it feels real good.”

Sorry lawbreakers, Matthew McConaughey won’t be back to enforce all the stripping laws. Greg Jacobs who is directing the Magic Mike sequel confirmed what was widely speculated. No McConaissance for Magic Mike XXL.

Guess someone’s too big for his britches after winning an Oscar ;) I kid. Thankfully, Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer will return to show off their seductive moves.

In addition to revealing McConaughey’s status, Jacobs revealed some tidbits about the plot of the highly-anticipated sequel.

“What am I allowed to say?” Greg told IndieWire. “It’s road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”

Magic Mike XXL hits theaters in July 2015. In the meantime, check out Matthew’s stripping performance in the original. It’s most likely the last time you’ll ever see him wearing chaps. Enjoy.

Aubrey Plaza Is Grumpy Cat

No disrespect to Aubrey Plaza, but she sorta looks like a grumpy cat. Her casting is one of the most inspired I’ve read in recent memory.

The Parks and Recreation star will voice Grumpy Cat in Lifetime’s upcoming TV movie Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever. The film centers on “a pet-store cat that is perpetually overlooked and the 12-year-old girl, Chrystal, who can communicate with her.”

Since becoming an internet sensation in 2012, Grumpy Cat has released a book, a coffee product and other ventures. Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever premieres on Lifetime Saturday, November 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Are you excited for this? Is Plaza the perfect choice to voice the part? Weigh in below.

Original stars Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo who played the patriarch and matriarch of the Griswold family are expected to make cameos. A sort of passing the torch. Like all the sequels, the Griswold children will be played by different actors from the first film. Check out the reboot/sequel cast below. It even includes an Avenger.
