Will Forte -- oh, let's just call him MacGruber -- is leaving "Saturday Night Live." No reason given, but then they usually aren't after long and successful runs. The assumption is ... movies? TV shows? Whatever else Lorne cooks up ... MacGruber should have no trouble landing, but I kinda doubt a sequel to "MacGruber" will be forthcoming. 

Statement: "After eight great seasons, Will has made the decision to move on from SNL
to pursue new opportunities.  He is eternally grateful to Lorne and all of the incredible people he worked with over the years."
