Bill Hader is leaving “Saturday Night Live” after an eight-year run.
His spokesman confirms that the 34-year-old comedian will depart “SNL” after this weekend’s season finale.
Hader joined the NBC sketch-comedy show in 2005. He has since made his mark with a range of impersonations including Al Pacino, Vincent Price, James Carville and Stefon, the hipster “Weekend Update” correspondent.
Hader’s films include “Superbad,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Knocked Up” and “Pineapple Express.”
There are apparently a few more Sundays left in Billy Crystal.
The star of “City Slickers” and “When Harry Met Sally” said Tuesday he will reprise his funny and poignant one-man autobiographical show “700 Sundays” on Broadway for a 9-week stand this fall.
“700 Sundays” was a Broadway success during the 2004-2005 season, playing to sold-out houses and winning a Tony Award for special theatrical experience. Crystal took it on the road, both in America and abroad.
Previews of its return engagement will begin Nov. 5 at the Imperial Theatre, with an opening night set for Nov. 13. The final performance is scheduled for Jan. 5.
Beyonce is canceling her Tuesday concert in Belgium because of dehydration and exhaustion.
In an email to The Associated Press, the singer’s publicist says Beyonce has been advised by her doctors to rest. She was scheduled to perform at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. The show will be rescheduled and tickets can be used at that show.
Her next tour date is Wednesday at the same arena. The statement says “she is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision.”
Beyonce, 31, launched her “Mrs. Carter World Tour” last month in Belgrade, Serbia. It wraps Aug. 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
