If you’re like us and have been severely missing Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig on Saturday Night Live, then this movie sounds perfect. The duo will be starring alongside each other in the upcoming dark comedy “The Skeleton Twins“. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and has already generated plenty of buzz after winning a Screenwriter Award at the festival. It also stars Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell.
After viewing the trailer ourselves, the movie looks to deliver the best of the talent we’ve come to love and expect from these two. “The Skeleton Twins” premieres September 19th, 2014 and we can’t wait!
Watch the trailer for “The Skeleton Twins” below:
Bill Hader is doing extremely well for himself since departing Saturday Night Live. Pixar unveiled their plans for the next couple of years at the D23 Expo last week. Part of these plans include Hader voicing two major roles in Pixar’s next movies. The Good Dinosaur is set to be released in 2014 with Bill voicing a sibling to the lead character alongside Judy Greer. Bill has also joined the 2015 release Inside Out, where he will be joining the likes of Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling as Fear. Watch out, John Ratzenberger. Bill is coming for your record.
I think it says a lot about my strength that I’m able to get over my Post-Bill Hader Leaving SNL depression enough to wipe away my tears and make this post. I love Bill Hader. He was easily my favorite cast member of Saturday Night Live in a long time. I had been prepared to say goodbye to other cast members like Jason Sudeikis, Seth Meyers, and possibly Nasim Pedrad, but Bill’s announcement of his departure from the show took me a bit off guard. Perhaps I was in denial. I know he’ll go off to do amazing things but I will forever be bitter I didn’t have the opportunity to camp out and see him live, on stage.
Last night’s finale served more as a farewell to him and his buddies than a showcase of Ben Affleck. In fact, I barely remember him hosting. Last night, it was all about Stefon and Seth. And if their happily ever after didn’t do it for you, maybe the touching musical number at the end that seemingly revealed both Jason and Fred Armisen were also leaving the show. Personally, when the cast, minus Kanye, all shed some tears as NBC finally showed the group hugs and goodbyes, was when I truly shed tears of my own.
Check out the video of Stefon’s farewell, featuring cameos by Anderson Cooper and every weird club goer Stefon warned us about throughout the years, and Fred’s musical goodbye here:
Actor, writer, and comedic genius Bill Hader is branching out from his brilliant roles on Saturday Night Live. The comedian is returning to Turner Classic Movies this Summer to host the network’s TCM Essentials Jr. showcase. Bill will be presenting 13 classic movies that are great for parents to introduce to their children. The showcase will begin on June 2nd on TCM with The Court Jester. The showcase will air throughout the Summer on Sunday nights.
In addition to his roles on SNL, Bill has a great list of upcoming projects and can be seen in the upcoming movie The Skeleton Twins and heard in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2.
Some of my favorite SNL moments ever always seem to include a sketch where the hilarious Bill Hader gets the giggles. His giggle is up there with Anderson Cooper has one of my favorites. Really, any scene where the cast breaks character is a good one and this is no exception. The dress rehearsal video for last night’s Renaldo and Alexi has both Fred Armisen and Bill fighting to get through the scene without laughing. It’s definitely worth a look!

Can I just print postcards at printingamerica.com with Bill’s giggly face on it as my Christmas card?
