Jon Rudnitsky Joins Saturday Night Live

Meet Saturday Night Live's New Cast Member, Jon Rudnitsky!

Saturday Night Live has added a new featured player! Twenty-five-year-old stand-up comedian Jon Rudnitsky has joined the show for its 41st season, which is premiering on Oct. 3. Here are some quick facts about the new guy on the block!

  1. He's from Harrington, NJ, and graduated from USC.
  2. He won the Laugh Factory's Laugh Bowl college comedy contest in 2012.
  3. He has very little on camera experience, apart from a 2012 episode of Criminal Minds and some short films. In this one, The Jewish Hunger Games: Kvetching Fire, he plays both Peeta Hummus and Effie Trinket. He also cowrote it, so he's clearly a man of many talents.
  1. You can follow him on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
  2. He looks excellent shirtless. Please see below.

And there you have it! Looking forward to seeing him on the premiere, which will be hosted by Miley Cyrus.
