"Saturday Night Live" announced Monday the addition of three new featured players who will make their debut on the October 1st season premiere.
Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, and Melissa Villasenor will be replacing outgoing cast members Taran Killam, Jay Pharoah, and Jon Rudnitsky. Day has been a writer on the show since 2013, and is also a member of The Groundlings — the comedy troupe also responsible for "Saturday Night Live" alum Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig.
Moffat also has a connection with the show, as he was head writer and a cast member on the Lorne Michaels-produced "Maya & Marty," which starred two other former featured players, Maya Rudolph and Martin Short.
Villasenor was a semifinalist on "America's Got Talent," and her particular talent is similar to that of one of one of the players she's replacing — Jay Pharoah — as both of them are masters of impersation. Watch Villasenor impersonate Owen Wilson and others below via YouTube:
