New SNL Cast Members Poke Fun at Pop Culture
New Saturday Night Live cast members Vanessa Bayer and Paul Brittain managed to get themselves noticed during last weekend’s broadcast.

When he dreamily explained that he and Tim Burton are currently “working on a haunting adaptation of Goodnight Moon,” it was impossible not to burst into hysterical laughter.
