Yang joined the sketch show’s writing staff last season and appeared as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un when “Killing Eve” star Sandra Oh hosted in March. The NYU graduate’s casting is also noteworthy as he’s the only Asian American series regular in this cast.
Fineman is known for her work with improv company The Groundlings, a noted “SNL” training ground, and for the ace celebrity (and other) impressions that she posts on her social channels.
Gillis, like Fineman, has been a New Face at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival. He also can be frequently heard on Comedy Central Radio’s “The Bonfire.”
The 45th season of “SNL” premieres September 28 with host Woody Harrelson and musical guest Billie Eilish.
