Sorry all you Fart Face fans, but the man behind the character you love so dearly is packing his fart face up and traveling on. Will Forte will not return to "Saturday Night Live" for the show’s 36th season. Neither NBC nor Forte’s people would offer a P.C. response as to why, but apparently the split is "amicable," like they always are according to lawyers.
The actor is now free to pursue other projects that aren’t on Saturday night or live. The question is, can he remain relevant in movies for long if he’s not continuely exposed to fans on "SNL"? MacGruber didn’t do him any favors. I think Forte’s a funny guy and all, but he’s not exactly a household name like Will Ferrell was when he decided to jump Lorne Michael’s ship. Unless your household is particularly fond of twisted, weird-ass sketches. In which case, your family should have dinner together more often. (Movieline)
