Congrats are in order for Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson. With the start of the 43rd season of the sketch comedy show, Thompson will become the series longest-running cast member. Thompson has been with the show for 14 years and will soon surpass Darrell Hammond who was with the show from 1995 to 2009.
Along with his SNL milestone, Kenan is working on a new show called Skoogle. The show will be based on the same premise as the show that introduced him to the world of entertainment, Nickelodeon's All That.
“We pitched it around so we’re trying to have someone make a deal for it. It’s still in the air, but it looks like it’s going to land pretty strong so we’ll find out what’s going on with that in the next couple weeks,” Kenan told CBS. “It’s going to be similar to ‘All That’: a bunch of sketches and musical guests."
SNL’s season 43 premieres on Sept. 30 with guest host Ryan Gosling and performer JAY-Z.
