The God of SNL Will See You Now: Auditioning For Lorne...

Posted by: Cody Nelson (08/22/13)
The New York Times has put together an unbelievably in-depth piece chronicling the audition process for 22 current and former Saturday Night Live cast members. For great acceptance (and rejection) stories, and to also get an idea of what goes into casting the show, take the time to give it a read.

that was a great read! I would've loved to hear from more people that didn't get the job, but a lot of the quotes were really cute. You sometimes forget that before SNL these people are literally nobody's.

The Will Ferrell playing with cat toys bit sounds like the funniest thing ever.

If you like this article, read Live from New York. It's written in the same testimonial style and enormously entertaining.

Definitely! It's a great book -- I bought it for a report I did in middle school (god, 8 years ago) and I re-read it recently and it was still fascinating the second time around. Very highly recommended.

I loved this. I don't know what it is about this show that I find so absolutely fascinating but I just love reading about it.
