Will this be Kristen Wiig's last season on 'SNL'?

Kristen Wiig retired two of her "Saturday Night Live" characters earlier this year, but now there's the question of whether she'll depart from the sketch comedy show altogether.

Showbiz411 has cited a source who claims Wiig's getting ready to tape what could be her last season on "SNL." The absence of NBC's show on her to-do list would make room for more film projects, which Wiig has been racking up as of late.

There's "Friends with Kids," co-starring Jon Hamm, and "Imogene," in which Wiig plays a playwright who stages a suicide in hopes of getting back with her ex, but winds up living with her "Jersey Shore"-esque mom.

And while there's been talk of a "Bridesmaids 2," one can only hope Wiig will be in it: Jon Hamm has said he's not sure if the actress is all that interested in signing up for a sequel.

Everyone’s a Critic: Autumn overload

Today, I have a message for all the movie studios, television networks, record labels and book publishers out there: Give me a break.

That’s not the start of a sarcastic rant, it’s an honest plea: I need a break!

The arrival of the autumnal season brings with it an array of special moments. The leaves start to change; school is back in session; we have an excuse to use the word “autumnal.”

Surprise elimination stuns ballroom on 'DWTS'

It doesn't take a lot to upset the audience 0f "Dancing With the Stars." As soon as a judge starts criticizing a celebrity's performance, the "boo birds" rain down the auditorium.

So when reality TV star Kristin Cavallari was eliminated from the show last night, the crowd let the voters at home have it.  Even the judges were shocked at the sight of Cavallari and soccer star Hope Solo in the bottom two, with judge Len Goodman noting that both had potential to contend for the Mirrorball Trophy.

Cavallari had been one of the better dancers this season, performing the highest-rated quickstep last week and finishing in a tie for fourth among all performers Monday. But host Tom Bergeron noted that Cavallari may have been a victim of fans opting not to vote for her, thinking she would be safe for next week.

Yes, Johnny Depp will take those millions, thanks

Johnny Depp has another three projects in the works following this month's "The Rum Diary" and it's no wonder: Forbes estimated that the well-paid actor pulled in $50 million last year, and he's trying to rake it in while the cash is flowing.

“Basically, if they’re going to pay me the stupid money right now, I’m going to take it," the 48-year-old star told Vanity Fair in the magazine's November issue. "I have to. I mean, it’s not for me. Do you know what I mean? At this point, it’s for my kids. It’s ridiculous, yeah, yeah. But ultimately is it for me? No. No. It’s for the kids.”

More from Johnny Depp's Vanity Fair interview

But even though his bank account's changed, VF writer Nick Tosches, who has known Depp for more than 10 years, says he's "still the same old Johnny." It is obvious that being photographed all the time hasn't gotten any easier for the actor.
