— Kristen Wiig stopped by Alec Badlwin‘s podcast — you can listen to it here or read the transcript here. While she doesn’t flat out announce that she’s leaving Saturday Night Live when her contract expires at the end of this season, she did say this: “I will say that when I do leave it’s not because I’m sick of it and not because I see something better or anything like that. It’s just that it’s time. When I do leave, it will be the hardest thing.” Yes, Alec has a podcast. Amazing. Not only is Wiig rumoured to be leaving, but also Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis — all of which would be truly horrible. Anyway, the podcast is awesome as Kristen also discusses how she first arrived on SNL and then doing Bridesmaids.
