Taran Killam Shares Loving Message To Wife Cobie Smulders On 'Present Laughter' Broadway Debut!

Taran Killam has shared the sweetest message for his wife Cobie Smulders in support of her debut Broadway performance in Present Laughter!

The 35-year-old actress stars as Joanna Lyppiatt in the Noel Coward comedy, opposite Kevin Klein. Present Laughter officially opened last night (April 5) at the St. James Theatre in New York City.

“I don’t normally like to get very personal on social media but tonight is the opening of this woman’s Broadway debut,” Taran wrote on his Instagram post. “This woman, the kindest, most selfless, most stunning individual with the most educated heart I’ve ever encountered. She followed me to New York for my work and set a goal for herself. The only specific creative goal I’ve ever witnessed her commit to: perform in a play on Broadway. In these three years, she has jumped through many hoops; put herself out willingly and vulnerably, while still keeping a priority of being a superb mother and phenomenal partner.”

“She has been met with speculation, scrutiny and rejection but never gave up her commitment to her dream,” Taran continued. “And tonight, she realizes this dream. Something few people ever get to achieve. And she does it flawlessly. I have never been so overwhelmed with pride in my life. Congratulations, Cobie, you did it. Thank you for the inspiration and the incredible honor of being your husband.”

Also in attendance at the after party was Tina Fey and her hubby Jeff Richmond, Zachary Quinto, David Burtka, Tedra Millan and designer Zac Posen.

FYI: Cobie is wearing an Altuzarra ‘Celia’ dress with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

Taran Killam & Jay Pharoah Set to Depart 'Saturday Night Live'

Saturday Night Live just announced that fan-favorite cast members Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah won’t be returning for the show’s 42nd season.

The news comes as a surprise as Taran and Jay joined the cast in 2010 and were reported to have signed seven year contracts. This means their run was ended one season early.

“You sign for seven years, so I had one more year. I had sort of had it in my head I would make this upcoming year my last year, but then heard they weren’t going to pick up my contract. I was never given a reason why, really,” Taran explained to Uproxx.

Both actors have other projects in the works including Taran‘s flick Why We’re Killing Gunther with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jay‘s animated film Sing.
