Gillis was announced alongside Chloe Fineman and Bowen Yang, the series' first-ever full-time Asian American performer.

WHAT!? Shane Gillis is the newest cast member of Saturday Night Live? Leslie Jones will be leaving the show after five seasons on the show. The writer/performer popped up on Saturday Night Live a year ago as Kim-Jong un in a sketch with host Sandra Oh. He frequently films videos of himself epically lip-syncing to the voice of stars like Cardi B, as well as famous scenes from TV shows and movies, like Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada and Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich. Yang is now the first full time Asian castmember, and he seems like a brilliant choice to help round out the cast.

In the 2018 video, recorded as part of "Matt and Shane's Secret Podcast", Gillis and co-host Matt McCusker rant about Chinatown, its residents and its cuisine, using racial slurs and stereotypes throughout the segment.

The new season will premiere September 28 with Woody Harrelson hosting and chart-topping pop star Billie Eilish set as the musical guest.

Genius iPhone 11 Pro parody video is hilarious work of art
If you're a photography nut of any variety and you're in the market for a new phone, it's certainly one to keep in mind. Apple played up an ability to use Pro iPhones for slow motion portrait snippets like selfies that it called 'slofies'.

Fineman and Gillis were both named New Faces at the Just Laughs Festival in Montreal in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Fineman, who has been a member of the Groundlings, has credits that include Search Party and Jane the Virgin.

Ottawa-born actress Sandra Oh took on hosting duties in the past season of Saturday Night Live, and remains one of the few with Asian heritage to take the popular stage.
