    Eight is enough! After eight seasons, funnyman Will Forte is leaving Saturday Night Live. He is exiting the long running sketch show to pursue other opportunities.

    His publicist released a statement that said Forte is "eternally grateful" to SNL producer Lorne Michaels and to "all the incredible people he worked with over the years" for his successful run on the show.

    Forte joined the cast in 2002 as a featured player. He was upstreamed to the role of "regular cast member" soon after, and took over the role of then-president George W. Bush when Will Ferrell left the show and was featured as a number of recurring characters, including the Falconer and MacGruber. Those are two of my fave skits/characters.

    Are you bummed that Forte is moving on? Who is your favorite SNL star?
