In a game show spoof on the Sept. 28, 2013 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” host Tina Fey had the daunting task of trying to determine who was a new cast member of the show and who was an Arcade Fire band member in the mock game show, “New Cast Member or Arcade Fire?”
With the mass exodus of a number of “SNL” cast members last season, including Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, and Bill Hader, the show had to recruited a bunch of new talent.
In total, six people have joined the cast including Beck Bennett, who many will recognize from AT&T commercials as the guy with the dry wit who has hilarious conversations with children; Mike O’Brien, who was an “SNL” writer; Kyle Mooney; John Milhiser; Brooks Wheelan; and the only new female cast member, Noel Wells.
As Mediaite notes, in the skit, while Tina attempts to distinguish who is a musician and who is a rookie cast member, each tries to “establish catchphrases” and “suck up” to her.
At one point, the host of the mock game show, cast member Kenan Thompson – who has been on the show for almost 11 years – was thought to be one of the new cast members by long-time show producer, Lorne Michaels, who quips, “Is it the black one?”
