Will Forte: Leaving 'Saturday Night Live'

Will Forte will not return to Saturday Night Live when the show returns this fall for its 36th season.

The 40-year-old comedian’s departure was confirmed to the New York Times by two people close to the show.

One source added that the split was amicable and that Will wanted to pursue outside projects.

Will joined SNL back in 2002 and created a series of memorable characters, including MacGruber, The Falconer and Tim Calhoun.
