Cecily Strong and Colin Jost Tell ‘The Wall Street Journal’ About Their Plans for Weekend Update


“But I think now we all would like, I think, something Colin and I talked about, to sort of integrate Update back into the show. And we have a really great new writer, my friend Katie Rich, from Chicago. I used to understudy her. She’s got such a great personality and she’s getting our nerdy little sweet Update guys out of their shell and letting the two meet. It’s almost like you want them to have a mixer: ‘Update, meet SNL.’”

- Cecily Strong in a joint interview with Colin Jost for The Wall Street Journal, in which the Weekend Update co-anchor hints at the segment’s evolving relation with the rest of SNL.
