SNL Finally Added An Asian-American Cast Member For Season 45

13 Septembre, 2019, 02:09 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

"Saturday Night Live" announced Thursday that it has added three new featured players to its cast ahead of its upcoming 45th season: Chloe Fineman, Shane Gillis and Bowen Yang.

Saturday Night Live has taken heat over the years for an overall lack of ethnic diversity, with scant Asian representation among its cast members or hosts.

The deficiency, which led to SNL production designer Akira Yoshimura being recruited to play Asian Star Trek character Sulu in a 2017 Star Trek skit featuring Chris Pine, was addressed on the show by then-new cast member Melissa Villaseñor in a sketch about the 2016 Vice-Presidential debate.

Leslie Jones, who joined the show after it was criticized in 2013 for the absence of an African American woman among its regular or featured players, is focusing on stand-up and movies and won't be back this season. Both will serve as featured players as well. Fellow industry members have already posted several congratulatory messages to Yang on social media for his historic moment. "As always expected! Congrats my friend. this is HUGE".
