Wow! The Comic's Comic is reporting that Lorne Michaels has decided to axe both Michaela Watkins and Casey Wilson from the cast of Saturday Night Live as the show enters its 35th season. We'll admit, this is a bit of a shocker. While we kinda saw the Casey Wilson thing coming — after all, she appeared in the least number of sketches of any full-time cast member last year (save for Darrell Hammond) — the Watkins firing comes as a total surprise to SNL observers, as she seemed to be gelling quite well with the cast and even managed to get a few breakout characters on air during her half-season as a cast member. Bitch, pleeze! [Comic's Comic]
