Leslie Jones
It was just last year that Leslie was hired by SNL as a writer but quickly made a name for herself after a memorable on-air appearance during the late-night sketch show’s “Weekend Update” segment. Upon returning last fall for the show’s fortieth season, she found herself promoted to the cast as a featured player. Most recently, Leslie wrapped shooting one of the four lead roles in Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot, starring alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon. This winter, Leslie will be seen on the big screen appearing in Jared Hess’ Masterminds opposite Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. Furthermore, Leslie is voicing an animated character in the studio feature Lunch, for Illumination Entertainment, opposite Matthew McConaughey and John C. Reilly. Lastly, The New Yorker is in the middle of doing a huge profile on Leslie. The last SNL cast member The New Yorker did this with was Tina Fey in 2003. Leslie was last seen and coming off a memorable performance in both Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck and Chris Rock’s feature Top Five for Paramount.

Colin Jost
Colin Jost returns for his third season as co-anchor of SNL’s "Weekend Update,” alongside fellow cast member Michael Che. Jost joined the cast as “Weekend Update” co-anchor on March 1, 2014. Previously at SNL, Jost served as co-head writer since 2012 and as a staff writer since 2005. Jost has won three Writers Guild Awards, a Peabody Award and has been nominated for multiple Emmy Awards for his writing on SNL. He also wrote and starred in the Paramount/ Netflix film, "Staten Island Summer," based on his days as a lifeguard growing up in New York. Jost is a Staten Island native and Harvard graduate. His birthday is June 29. YouTube Page
