So Abby Elliott’s Not Leaving SNL This Year After All


Very suspicious news is in the air. Abby Elliott has left the pilot cast for Ben Fox Is My Manny after “it was determined that she wasn’t the right fit for the role” in a table read yesterday. Determined by whom? Damn you, passive voice! What happened here??? Drama aside, the upshot is that Elliott won’t have to leave SNL if the show goes to series. Which is good, because Angelina Jolie is not going to stop adopting babies anytime soon, and SNL is not going to stop needing to make fun of her.
