A question answered

For a while, I was wondering if Studio 60 would ever use any SNL cast member. At first, when it was clear that Lorne Michaels was not a fan of this show being done, I reckoned that only a cast member who really wanted to burn bridges would do it. My sense (not playing close attention, admittedly) is that that conflict cooled somewhat with 30 Rock being added to the NBC schedule. And with Studio 60 going from not mentioning the existence of a real Saturday Night Live to making an SNL reference each episode.
Anyway, tonight my question was answered. Mark McKinney, who if memory serves only did one season of SNL (although he comes from years on the Lorne Michaels-produced Kids in the Hall) showed up on what looks to be a recurring role.
And since I tend to like McKinney (including not only in the aforementioned shows, but also the Canadian production Slings & Arrows), I consider this a good thing.

  1. I’ve since seen elsewhere that Mark has been involved with the series since episodes 2, just behind the scenes as a writer and story editor. Makes sense.
