(Newser) Saturday Night Live is losing one of its marquee names when its season wraps up this week. Bill Hader tells the New York Times that he's leaving after eight years. It was a "hard decision," says the 34-year-old, but "it got to a point where I said, ‘Maybe it’s just time to go.'" (Mashable rounds up some gifs of Hader as Stefon, James Carville, etc.) Hader is expected to shift more into movies, and the Hollywood Reporter notes that he's in talks to star in an indie flick called Lawless. Now the big question: Will other big SNL names such as Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis be leaving with him? Seth Meyers is also headed for the exit door. (Read more Bill Hader stories.)
