Luke Null, a 2008 Lakota East High School graduate, will not be returning to “Saturday Night Live” as a cast member this fall, according to Deadline.com.
Null auditioned for “Saturday Night Live” in 2016 and was among 20 finalists.
He was hired last year as a featured player on the long-running NBC show, but “got little screen time over the course of the season,” according to Deadline.com.
“SNL typically experiences some form of cast turnover every season. Null is the first to exit ahead of season 44,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
During his one-year stint on the show Null portrayed “The Voice” country singer Blake Shelton; Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder; a trucker attending a Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin) rally; one of the "Lost Boys" in a Peter Pan sketch; and an obnoxious high school student late for class, according to Deadline.com.
