Brooks Wheelan’s 10 Best/Only ‘Saturday Night Live’ Moments
Brooks Wheelan never had a chance. He most definitely saw it coming. The comedian entered the Saturday Night Live cast last season as one of a record eight new hires, so it was clear there'd be a Hunger Games scenario to get screen time. Thus, poor Brooks was usually relegated to "person in the crowd" status. Still, he was able to distinguish himself by accomplishing the rarest of SNL feats: appearing on Weekend Update as himself, instead of as a character. But it wasn't enough, so last night (July 14), the freshman castmember was booted from the show.
Brooks Wheelan, you will be missed. Or maybe you won't?
