'SNL' adds to the cast?

"Saturday Night Live" fans might soon see a fresh face among the cast: Deadline reports that comedian Kate McKinnon is expected to be a part of the April 7 episode of NBC's sketch comedy show, which will be hosted by Sofia Vergara.

Known for her work with the Upright Citizens Brigade, McKinnon was also part of "The Big Gay Sketch Show's" cast, and has won fans with her Web series, "Vag Magazine."

The Huffington Post notes that McKinnon was also nominated for the Emerging Comic honor by New York's excellence in comedy awards, the ECNYs, in 2010.

In addition to McKinnon, Deadline suggests that "SNL" creator Lorne Michaels is trying out other top female talent as well, including Jessica Joy, Lauren Lapkus and Elaine Carroll.

    SNL is just passable as a comedy show, maybe it's because I don't adapt well to change: I'm still stuck in the days of Dana Carvey(The Church Lady), Phil Hartman, etc. SNL needs fresher, funnier talent. Don't get me wrong: it's still an okay show, but.....

    SNL needs to clean house. Get rid of Bobby Moynihan, Kenan Thompson and Vanessa Bayer.

    I miss the old days of SNL... those were good times. Though once in a while SNL comes up with a funny skit here and there the overall quality has truly diminished.
