Colin will co-anchor with current cast member Cecily Strong.

Colin was the youngest writer to ever be hired at SNL back in 2005 at the age of 22 right out of Harvard.

    All these changes and shifts all because Leno is retiring. I’m going to miss watching Leno. He had been one of my favorite go-2′s.

    He looks more like a model – he better be good. Well, I never thought Seth Meyers was that good so maybe the bar is not too high.
