NEW YORK (AP) - Two new cast members are joining NBC's "Saturday Night Live" in time for the season's opening show this week.
Fred Armisen and Will Forte will replace Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer, two longtime cast members who have left the show. NBC made the announcement Wednesday.
Armisen has appeared on NBC's "Late Night" with Conan O'Brien, a former "SNL" writer. He's also been on HBO's music show "Reverb" and done work on "HBO Zone."
Forte comes from Los Angeles' improv outfit The Groundlings, a troupe that's a frequent farm team for "SNL." Cast members Chris Kattan, Chris Parnell and Maya Rudolph all got their start there.
He's also been a television producer and wrote for David Letterman's "Late Show."
This week's debut features host Matt Damon and musical guests Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
