Deadline broke the news earlier that Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader will be developing and starring in a new show for HBO. While there aren’t any details on the project just yet, this is promising and exciting for anyone who still quotes his beloved Stefon.
Hader is just the latest SNL cast member to get their own show; Nasim Pedrad and John Mulaney will star in FOX’s upcoming Mulaney, Casey Wilson has the upcoming NBC romantic-comedy Marry Me, Fred Armisen is killing it on Portlandia, and Andy Samberg’s Brooklyn 99 will be returning for a second season.
Of course, Bill Hader is best known for his work on Saturday Night Live. He started on the show in 2005 and left in 2013 alongside Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, and Samberg. During his time on the show, he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and created many memorable characters like Vinny Vedecci, the Italian talk-show host, Herb Welch, the bitter, old news-reporter, and, of course, everyone’s favorite, the aforementioned Stefon. Additionally, he's had a number of film roles as well including The To-Do List, Men In Black 3, Paul, and Superbad, and has had a recurring role as one of Mindy’s ex-boyfriends on FOX’s The Mindy Project.
Next up, however, you can catch Bill Hader alongside another SNL alum Kristen Wiig in the indie flick The Skeleton Twins, out September 19.
