Report: Sanz, Parnell, Thompson out at SNL, Hammond to follow?

He's not doing "Lazy Sunday" in this photo

Zap2It is reporting that Saturday Night Live is losing three cast members: Horatio Sanz, who we kind of like sometimes, but has probably run his course on the show; Kenan Thompson, who we like, but probably would be better suited to film and/or sitcom roles; and Chris Parnell, who we think has a valuable role as "go-to straight man" on the show, and who also starred in the sketch that arguably "saved" the show and ignited the viral video backlash. (Although we'd argue the case for both would be overstated.) No word on how or if they will be replaced.

Also in the Zap2It report: Darrell Hammond's status with the show is in doubt. He's been on since 1995. We can understand wanting to show him respect and all that, but wouldn't it be best for both parties if they cut the cord?

Jason Sudeikis will likely move into the "Update" chair. We'll have to see him in action; we're honestly unsure of how he'll do.

UPDATE: Dead-Frog indicates there are several different conflicting reports on what's actually going on over there, so who really knows. The LA Times's report reflects Zap2It's report, though.
