Casey Rose Wilson joins the cast of Saturday Night Live this week in the show’s return from the WGA strike. Lorne Michaels confirmed the hiring to the New York Post, saying (buried in a different angle on SNL): "I think you will love her." Well, what else would he say?
How about this? According to IMDB, she has appeared on an episode of MTV’s Human Giant (UCB connection? check!) and had a small part in last year’s film, The Brothers Solomon (SNL connections? check!). Want to be her MySpace friend? Go on. Do it.
Other fun facts about the new kid at SNL: She went to NYU. She has won an ECNY Award (with June Raphael) for best duo. They wrote "Rode Hard and Put Away Wet" together. Her most recent UCB efforts revolved around the troupe Sentimental Lady and the show "Worst Laid Plans." See more here.
