Bill Hader leaving 'Saturday Night Live': 'It was a hard decision'Add to Favorites | Saturday Night Live
"It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point. It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it's just time to go,'" says Hader.
The eight-year veteran of the show is known for his colorful characters, including "Weekend Update" correspondent Stefon, talk show host Vinny Vedecci, his impersonation of James Carville and many others. Hader is one of the few "SNL" cast members who has received an Emmy nomination for his work on the show.
This announcement comes on the heels of Seth Meyers being announced as the new host of "Late Night" on NBC.
