Bobby Moynahan? Seth Meyers? Bill Heder? Will Forte?
And before this gets started, nobody said lezbo, so please don't spoil this thread by taking it to fishville.
I would have said yes to Will Forte, but he's been off the show for over a year. And Paul Brittain would have been my other affirmative, but now he's gone too.
I want Andy Samberg to be gay, really like him!!
and Bill Hader...
No one. Move on.
Don't worry about it.
r5 = Cheryl
Seth Meyers pings off the radar for me. But I seen pictures of Seth and his girlfriend, so I guess MAYBE he's straight. (The girlfriend is very pretty, too.)
Fred Armisen is not, much to my surprise.
Bill Hader has been married forever, he once mentioned in an interview that he and his wife are both Sci-Fi geeks.
R9, Fred Armisen is a notorious pussy hound and actually has gone to sexaholics anonymous meetings for his compulsive sexual behavior. Why do you think his marriage to Elizabeth Moss lasted only 10 months?
I would love to lick out Andy Samberg's ass and feet.
[r11] it might also be that Elizabeth Moss is a scientologist
I didn't realize Will Forte had left. I guess I can stop confusing him with Bill Hader.
Has SNL ever had an out gay cast member?
What the hell happened with Paul Brittain?
[quote]Has SNL ever had an out gay cast member?
Terry Sweeney waaaaay back in the 80s. He made a great Nancy Reagan.
"would have said yes to Will Forte..."
Yeah, because he's the only good looking one.
Will Fiorte = not gay
Terry Sweeney recently said in an interview that he is more often recognized on the street for his one-episode appearance on Seinfeld than for SNL.
Any misogynist asshole like OP/R1 doesn't deserve to have his post acknowledged.
Gay man embarrassed by you
After his divorce, Fred Armisen also had a very brief relationship with cast member Abby Elliott, daughter of former SNL cast member Chris Elliot. Chris was on SNL for about a year in the 90s.
Armisen might be funny and a very talented drummer, but he is completely fug. I guess he gets laid a lot because he's rich and famous, because if he was an Average Joe driving a truck for a living, I'm sure he'd be frequenting hookers for his sex addiction!
Speaking of SNL, has anyone caught the gossip about that mental case Tracey Morgan refusing to help his mom out? She lost her job, then took ill and needs help with her mortgage. The mortgage is less than $25,000.
His mom is on the verge of becoming homeless, besides not being able to pay her mortgage, her utilities have also been turned off, Morgan had his assistant call his mother and tell her he will not give her more than $2,000.
His sister had some comments about this situation, she stated Morgan has always been a nasty and angry person, so she was not surprised by his refusal to help their mom. She also stated that most of his book was filled with lies.
Morgan is worth $18 million.
Fugly Fred gets a lot because he's mastered the fine art of conversation -- talking. Women love me who can talk.
Armison might get laid because he's famous, but he can't be that rich. SNL performers don't make much (it's only what, 15 eps a year or something?) and it's not like he has some film franchise. He MIGHT get a decent cut of money made from PORTLANDIA but a big cut of what probably isn't that huge of a pie isn't much.
Sweeney probably isn't recognized much as his years on SNL never get rerun. Wasn't he on when Michaels wasn't producing and he won't let those episodes see the light of day again?
When did Paul Brittain get the axe?
There were all kinds of rumors a few years back when Andy Samberg first joined the show that he and Seth Meyers were "special" friends - they were seen everywhere together, with no "dates". It's only since then that Seth found a girlfriend, and Andy was also seen out with women...
RE@ r20, I never comment on people's family issues. An outsider has no idea whether he's being a complete douche for that or whether there's something behind that. Family and intimate relationships, you can never really know what's going on from the outside. Having said that, it could be completely how it looks.
Nobody is gay on SNL you gays need to stop your wishful
thinking and trying to recruit others to your lifestyle.
Bill Hader is the kind of guy who comes off so secure of his sexuality that he must have a ton of gay friends. His Stephon is such a loving rendition of an annoying type of twink that he HAS to know people like this to sift through to find the charm. If he has a single gay brother, I want to marry into that family...
He is also the most talented member of the cast.
Hasn't it been discussed over and over that Mike Myers is probably gay?
There is no way Tracey Morgan is worth $18 million. Please.
Well, for Andy Samberg's first couple of seasons, EVERY sketch/film-short had serious homoerotic overtones. He's toned it down recently, but I'm convinced that at the very least he is bi.
"I never comment on people's family issues. An outsider has no idea whether he's being a complete douche for that or whether there's something behind that. Family and intimate relationships, you can never really know what's going on from the outside. Having said that, it could be completely how it looks."
A friend, who is a psychiatrist, observed Tracy Morgan when he had appeared on talk shows, I had asked the friend what he thought of him. He stated, on the surface, observers might assume there is definitely something 'off' about him, but on the other hand, Morgan can also be manipulating his image 100%, IE: he is not as stupid and aloof as he wants everyone to think he is.
I recall watching an interview with Morgan on some talk show, he was using 'big words', was articulate and appeared to come across as not being as ignorant and 'street' as his usual TV interview persona would lead you to believe he is, then, it was if he caught himself, he suddenly went back to acting ignorant and weird. I wish I could remember what show this was, possibly Conan's old 12:30AM NBC show, but I'm not sure.
Lately, Morgan been photographed all over the place with some young beautiful black women, he's introducing her as his future wife, she's clearly a gold digger.
I feel for his mom, she doesn't appear to want much, just for him to pay off her below $25,000 mortgage. Meanwhile, he's flaunting some gold digger.
In his interviews with the media, it appears Morgan twisted the situation, claiming that his mom gave negative interviews about him, but this was previous to this latest controversy.
The sister said that's a total lie, their mom had never gone to the press with any gossip about Morgan. Then, the sister added, "But now, because of how he is treating our mom, all bets are off." Which basically means, this personal situation has come out and will continue to go public.
We can't always assume because someone is a rich and famous celebrity that they are a good person. I find most celebrities to be delusional, self serving, arrogant, mean and most of them seem to magically forget their humble beginnings. You need only read the celebrity rider thread here to see how delusional celebrities are!
A friend worked on a photo shoot with Jennifer Lopez a few months ago, they told me everyone, including the well known photographer, was walking on eggshells around J.Lo. She was nasty to everyone and very demanding about throroughly inane requests, just to be a ball buster! Lopez got everything on her rider, yet still found faults!
My friend said Lopez was one of the craziest celebrities they'd ever worked with and added, she was VERY common.
Seth Meyers is one of those hiding in plain sight gays.
As is Jimmy Fallon.
I think Andy's ego would encourage him to sleep with anyone who worshipped him.
Shame about Paul Brittain. He's quite cute, actually, but never got a good break on SNL. And the other new part-timer - the black guy they have now who does all the imitations - really isn't very funny.
Gays are clever and humorous so, to answer your question,... no one on SNL is gay.
"There is no way Tracey Morgan is worth $18 million. Please."
Why not? You'd be surprised how wealthy most comedians, actors, actresses and musicians are. They take their money and invest it in things like real estate, farms etc. Not every celeb blows their money, like Lindsey Lohan, on drug binges.
For example, Jay-Z bought a sneaker company, he owns clubs, restaurants, clothing companies etc. These celebs take the millions they've made and invest it other businesses to make even more money.
Sting owns a vineyard in Italy which produces high end olive oil ad wine, which is sold at Harrod's and that's the just the business the public knows about!
Morgan has worked consistently for many years, when not working on TV, he's done stand-up. I also don't think he's as dumb as he wants the public to think he is, so he's probably invested very well.
[quote]As is Jimmy Fallon.
What makes you think I won't cut you?
I think Seth Meyers seems pretty gay in this giggly interview with Martha Stewart.
Seth Meyers looks like that other paragon of masculinity Jason Mraz.
R33, most celebrities make much LESS money than most people think, and it gets splintered off into a million directions (managers, lawyers, etc).
Tracey Morgan has been a working actor/comedian, but he's never been at a superstar level. He's probably making decent money from "30 Rock," but not $18 million net worth money.
To compare him to Jay-Z or Sting -- who have sold millions of albums and concert tickets and have revenue flowing in whether they are working or not -- is ridiculous.
It was just announced today that Paul Brittain is leaving the show immediately to pursue other opportunities.
I saw him in person last month when I was walking outside of Rockefeller Center. He's a little guy.
I wonder if he's leaving by choice or if he was let go. He's nerdy-cute and funny but hasn't had a real breakout character. Hope he'll go on to other things. Maybe a sitcom like Casey Wilson.
Jay Pharoah does some good impressions but he's not especially funny otherwise. He doesn't seem to have much comic timing.
I worry for Vanessa Bayer as well. Her Miley Cyrus is great but she doesn't do much else. She could be this year's Melanie Hutsell.
[quote] After his divorce, Fred Armisen
I get Will Forte and Will Arnett confused
I want Taran Killam to be gay. Could some please here make him gay and have him be into eldergays?
Tracy Morgan, folks, not Tracey.
[quote]I wonder if he's leaving by choice or if he was let go. He's nerdy-cute and funny but hasn't had a real breakout character. Hope he'll go on to other things. Maybe a sitcom like Casey Wilson.
Casey Wilson's problem was that she wasn't a size two. Which is a shame, because she's actually really funny.
The Voice of the Night
The late Danitra Vance, who was only on the show for a season or two, was a lesbian.
Sorry r46 -- our mhb has forbidden speaking of the women gays.
People who only do subtle humor don't flourish on SNL. It's a lot of pee-pee, poo-poo, gay panic, twitchy physical broad humor.
Tracy's dad died from AIDS a few years ago. I think he got it from drugs. Maybe his mom has a drug or alcohol problem?
My dad says Chris Farley would do anything for coke.
I would love a roll in the hay with Seth Myers. He is cute as hell.
[quote]Tracy Morgan, folks, not Tracey.
I'm glad you've corrected people, because that's a deeply important distinction to make.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if they let Pharaoh go over the summer, but I think Killam and Bayer are probably safe. Bayer is safe mostly because they don't have very many girls on the show and Wiig has to be close to leaving. Speaking of which can someone fire that useless Abby Elliot?
Bill Heder? Will Forte - not gay
>>>It's only since then that Seth found a girlfriend, and Andy was also seen out with women
False. Samberg dated Natalie Portman and has dated other women. And that was years before Seth found a girlfriend
I don't think Jimmy Fallon is gay - I think he's just a nice straight guy.
has there ever been a gay cast member?
Pay attention R56--Terry Sweeney was out and his SNL stint was a long time ago.
Taran is adorable, but I don't believe he's gay. He has a child with Cobie Smulders of How I Met Your Mother.
[quote]Cobie Smulders of How I Met Your Mother.
My, what a pretty name. Definitely the name of a big movie star. There's an actress that is going places.
"Any misogynist asshole like OP/[R1] doesn't deserve to have his post acknowledged."
Thank you sweetheart. R1 is an embarrassment to a civilized society, much is the way racists and homophobes are.
Hey, she's been on a sitcom for six years. Not too shabby.
Uhh, hello? Robert Downey Jr.?
Met Fallon at two bars, one was Siberia when it was in the subway station, and the other was at Cleo's or 9th Ave. Lounge, a gay bar. I got a vibe from him although his wife and her galpal showed up soon after.
Nobody. No one in the cast, and no one on the writing staff. The show has a homophobic vibe with at least two "gay" skits per show that border on homophobic with predatory characters or "isn't gay men kissing/humping/fucking icky" themes. The show has never gone out of its way to find gay talent which is out there. Ellen was never a regular, or Rosie, or Sean Hayes (who would have been a great regular), Scott Thompson, Michael McDonald, Kate Clinton, Patrick Bristow, and others.
Over the decades it's pretty pathetic that they have ONE openly-gay cast member who is a footnote to the show.
Jimmy Fallon used to hang out at Siberia during his cocaine days. He was alluding to his wild clubbing days with some female guest a few months into his NBC show, wish I remembered who it was. He was going on to her about, "Wow, remember that club in the subway and what we got up to there." or something like that.
I still don't think Fallon is gay, he doesn't ping to me.
"To compare him to Jay-Z or Sting -- who have sold millions of albums and concert tickets and have revenue flowing in whether they are working or not -- is ridiculous."
I was not comparing Tracy Morgan's yearly worth to what Jay-Z and Sting make in a year.
I was making a point about how already super wealthy celebrities can make even more money by investing in other businesses. The same might apply to Morgan, he might have invested well, which explains the $18 million net worth, NOT the yearly amount he earns.
A relative inherited an a large amount of money, his accountant, and a friend a his who happened to be financial adviser, suggested what he could do with his financial windfall, to guarantee that my relative and his family never have to work again.
It can be done, especially if you don't have a drug, expensive car or designer clothing habit.
thank you brunhildafraufishhies at R19 and R59 for recognizing my post
r34, aka Sarah Silverman, I think you're confusing Jimmy Fallon with your ex-boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel, who was never an SNL cast member...
I remain a loyal member of the Jason Sudekis "damn I would like to give him a BJ"Club... not that he is gay, and not that he hasnt been in some stinker movies , but damn...
It is pretty amazing, isn't it? One out gay man, Terry Sweeney, and one fairly closeted lesbian, Danitra Vance. That's it. Why is there no outrage over this?
R68 -- you just know Jason is going to eventually blow up like his Uncle George … looks like the process has begun with your link!
outrage over starving children, and outrage over bullying gay teens, yes.... this one, not so much
I'm sure there have been/are gay cast members but since most cast members and Lorne look at the show as a springboard to movies and prime time, the closet is still very much a factor.
r70, who is Jason's uncle George?
R73. George Wendt from Cheers.
Why do people insist on acknowledging a post by saying it should not be acknowledged?
The question of lesbians on SNL is less interesting, because of the lower stakes for women (yes) and greater societal and show business stakes for men (yes).
Although I always was surprised Laraine Newman is straight. Mildly and boringly surprised, that is.
They need to come up with a sketch that has Jason and Bill Hader make out.
For some reason i always thought Lorne Michaels was gay. Yes married, but he looks like the kind of guy who would have a young boyfriend.
Jason and Jon Hamm making out as cops was pretty rewarding.
And while the accusations of homophobia on SNL are accurate--the 90s were an especially low point for them--it improved under Tina Fey's watch. Tina actually loves the gays.
Michaels isn't gay: just Canadian and Jewish. Which is why you might be confused.
He's very, very hetero, though.

R20, have you considered the idea that his mom might have a drinking or substance abuse issue? I know a number of wealthy people who've helped out family members but eventually stopped, and this was the reason in EVERY case. Aside from family members, I've certainly known a number of people who weren't above faking a case of "poverty" in order to gain sympathy, as well as loans for money that would eventually be spent on drugs/booze.
Not-gay Taran Killam recreating the pretty-gay Robyn video.
I could swear Julia Sweeney had come out but I guess I'm wrong. She did a one woman show about adopting her daughter and thought she'd done an interview with Out or the Advocate discussing her female partner she adopted with but according to wikipedia she's married to a man. I must be confusing her with someone else.
Anyone know if her brother who died was gay? She studiously avoids mentioning his sexuality in "God Said Ha!" but there are some hints. What about her younger brother who worked for the City of West Hollywood? He was a cutie.
[quote]And before this gets started, nobody said lezbo, so please don't spoil this thread by taking it to fishville.
Stop the homophobia and misogyny on Datalounge.
It's killing us
I think Adam Sandler's been with guys maybe still, he's always done homoerotic stuff. Jimmy Fallon, I think his wife's a cover. Michael Richards from "Fridays" & "Seinfeld" is gay. My neighbor said his bf fucked Paul Shaffer up the ass and he liked to be peed on while getting fucked.
I want to have drinks with r87.
I think Tracy is odd but people who work with him say he's a nice guy.
Seth -- gay or gay friendly?
Two friends of mine wrote on the show for years. One was gay, the other a lesbian.
Julia Sweeney isn't gay - I knew her through her first husband, who was a minor comedian and writer named Steve Hibbert. They were both quiet, pleasant people who didn't feel the need to be 'on' all the time.
Julia always seemed like she would be just as happy to be a college professor or a scientist. She definitely got more asexual-looking as she got older.
Saw Mike Myers getting out of a taxi with a saucy little blonde woman, turns out he's married to her. They had zero chemistry and he looked very unhappy, she was animated and feisty as shite.
Kate McKinnon got her start on "The Big Gay Sketch Show" on Logo produced by Rosie O'Donnell.
I am really happy about Kate McKinnon's casting and don't want to take anything away from her at all, but when you look at the other people who were auditioned recently, it is just weird to imagine what Lorne Michaels' decision-making process is like.
After Maya Rudolph came back to host and let them do a million different sketches they never would have been able to do without a black woman on hand they fail to consider any women of color; they audition Donald Glover and Jordan Peele to play Obama and instead cast Jay Pharaoh off of YouTube and stick to slapping brown makeup on Fred Armisen instead. Even if you don't think any of these people are particularly funny or talented I can't imagine thinking they're incapable of matching the standard set by Seth Myers, Jason Sudekis, or fucking Kenan.
Oh! I also read that James Adomian from Last Comic Standing and a bunch of comedy podcasts auditioned a couple of times without being hired. He is funny as hell and a fantastic impressionist (and openly gay) and I don't know who you would hire for SNL if not him. I care way too much about this shit and I blame all the sleepovers I went to in sixth grade where the only entertainment was an episode of Saturday Night Live and a box of Pizza Hut breadsticks.
What about Kristen Wiig? Despite all the events and awards and red carpets, you never see/hear about any significant other.
Oh, she pings for me too. God bless her if she's really fucking the drummer from the Strokes, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to find out that she was at least mostly gay.
Are there any gay male comics really? We know there are lesbians but I can't think of a gay male comic.
Isn't Paula Pell gay?
Seth is hiding in plain sight. There's been a half dozen Weekend Update bits this season that have all but said he's gay.
Seth is NOT gay! And I'm the man who knows.
From the current issue of Time Out New York:
Now that you and Stefon, Bill Hader’s nightlife-obsessed character, have smooched publicly, will it be weird between you two?
You have to realize America is only seeing my relationship with Stefon from the waist up. For them, the kiss was a big deal; for us, it was nothing. That was some Jane Austen shit compared to what’s going on underneath the desk.
R113, interesting link.
The three of them get so much exposure, it would be hard to imagine that the decision for them to leave would come from Lorne.
Wiig and Sudeikis both have movie careers (sort of), but what will Samberg be going to?
With Andy gone, who's going to suck
Bill Hader/Stefon will suck off Seth, at least on camera.
Andy Samberg will clearly move on to sucking off Justin Timberlake...
I would suck Jason Sudekis' ass for days.
Completely irrelevant but does anyone know what Serh wears when he's sitting behind the Update desk? Is it a full suit or does he wear a dress shirt and jacket and then casual trousers underneath, hidden from the camera?
I think Jason S. is very cute - not sexy, but cute. I also can't imagine he's going to have any major success after leaving SNL.
Andy Samberg co-hosted Live with Kelly one day last week, and he sure struck me as a gay guy. There was nothing too overt that I could point to, but it was a general feeling I got about some of the things he said and to a lesser degree, the manner in which he said them.
He talked about close he is with Seth Meyers - I think he compared Seth to an older brother. I thought that was interesting since Seth definitely comes across as a gay man (even though he apparently isn't...by his words).
I can tell you who's not gay....Jimmy Fallon...he can't be because I'm a girl and we're going to get married one day. so yeah
SNL is almost as homophobic as it is unfunny; there's no other reason that hilarious gays like Drew Droege and James Adomian have never been cast after auditioning - they were mentioned in a really informative article on "gay comedians" in NYT last week. But Lorne has a weird problem with gays on camera - you can see it in all the gay panic sketches that get on the show!
r120 I had always thought he was gay too, but he's dating Joanna Newsome now and has been for a few years. And from what I know of her, I honestly don't think she's a beard.
Maybe he's bi.
Who makes all the racist decisions on SNL? Is it the network, the producers, or the writers?
Kate McKinnon is the first openly gay woman of the show
How soon they forget.
Anyone else think SNL would be alot better without Lorne?He seems so cold and humorless and apparently not at all gay friendly.
I was watching SNL the other day and saw Kate McKinnon, and Madeline Kahn came to my memory. I think they look a lot alike.
Searching for more info about her, read that she is the third ''official'' gay member from SNL (counting Sweeney and vance).
It doesn't matter to me, but really?
37 years of SNL with hundreds of comedians and only three who are gay?
I just can not believe it...
Plz help me is former cast members SCTV star Martin Sort gay or not
Martin Short (I think that's who you mean, R-129) has been married 22 blessed years to a lovely woman named Nancy and they have three wonderful children. Haven't heard from Nancy though in a while. Anyone know what she's up to these days?
Bobby Moynahan is not gay. He slept with Brian William's daughter.
The over all feeling at NBC is that Seth is gay and closeted. This is a potential issue as the brass choose a replacement for Jimmy Fallon on Late Night.
This just couldn't be much funnier, when one considers Fallon's own need to "marry up" quickly in order to solidify his future in late night TV before he got the gig. Is Jimmy gay? For those wishing to dig: Tara Subkoff, Drew Barrymore, Imitation of Christ.
Seth is telling adorable anecdotes about "his girlfriend" all over the shows now...I'd look for an engagement ring in his near future. Late Night with Seth Myers sure beats SNL Weekend Update anchor!
Andy Samberg hosted the Idependent Spirit Awrds this year and not only ws he cute and funny but did come across as gay-ish. Also in that mode were both Seth and Bobby M when they appeared independently on Watch What Happens Live. Seth was very slyly good looking.
Jay Pharoah looks sort of hot as President Obama.
I thought Martin Short's wife diedand Kathy Lee had an awkward interview with him thinking she was alive...
Bobby M. kind of commented on how hot the bartender was when he was on Watch What Happens Live...
Samberg is engaged....but then so was Seann William Scott or whatever Stifler's real name is.
Seth Meyers is so cute! Please, more gay gossip about him.
"For those wishing to dig: Tara Subkoff, Drew Barrymore, Imitation of Christ."
Are you suggesting that Jimmy Fallon dated Drew Barrymore? Boy have you got that wrong. Fallon is close with Drew because his wife and Drew are business partners in a production company.
Tara Subkoff is an actress who has a clothing design firm called Imitation of Christ. Tara was engaged to "The King's Speech" director Tom Hooper. In January 2012, Hooper dumped Subkoff while she was pregnant.
 I know what I know. I did not put the pieced of the puzzle together thinking it would be more fun to let you do it.
You get an D. I would have given you an F, but at least you knew who Tara Subkoff and Imitation of Christ are. Nancy Juvonen is DB's partner in Flower Films. DB is one of Fallon's bffs. DB has been completely open as to her bi-status since her early 20's.
I never implied that DB and Fallon had dated.
Tara attended quite a few award shows and premiers when Fallon needed a girl on his arm.
Facts are your friends!
RDJ at least bi if not fully committed gay
Mike Myers is Gay Gayerson
Dana Carvey see: RDJ
Jimmy Fallon will NEVER come out
Christopher Guest may as well be out
Seth Myers no 1st hand knowledge but lots where's there's smoke there's fire stuff
Martin Short again no 1st hand knowledge, but he has to be right?
Dennis Miller Just wanted to see if you were paying
Please refrain from the "But he's married with children" thing. So is Johnny T.
When I speculate, I always say I so. When I state inside info, it is because I know.
Robert Downey Jr. was on SNL?
[quote]Martin Short again no 1st hand knowledge, but he has to be right?
But Martin IS married.
for one season in 1985 r142. The theory that year was to hire actors with a flair for comedy instead of comedians. (they hired Joan Cusack, Anthony Michael Hall, and RD Jr. then fired them all.)
OK Kathie. Oh, but wait. Wasn't YOUR first husband from Oral Roberts University gay? That must have been one hell of a shock on your wedding night.
Women, stay away from men who want to wait to make it "special". Unless you find it a hoot when hubby can't get it up.
