Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney, two of the four comedians that form the ‘Good Neighbor‘ sketch group that has produced viral videos such as “Outrageous Fun”, are joining the cast of Saturday Night Live.
With Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, and Seth Meyers all leaving the long-running variety show this year, NBC has recruited Bennett and Mooney to come on board next season.
You’ll most likely recognize Bennett as that guy who talks to the little kids in those “It’s Not Complicated” commercials for AT&T.
Mooney has also been seen on television in NBC’s Parks & Rec and commercials, most notably this Xfinity ad starring Mindy Kaling. However, he is most known for his Good Neighbor works and YouTube characters, including “Awkward Kyle” – a persona that has produced some hilariously uncomfortable gems, including this one featuring the San Francisco Giants.
NBC has also brought on a couple other new cast members as well (you can read more about them here) but I’m mostly excited to see the Good Neighbor guys bring their talents to the big time.
