‘Saturday Night Live’ has been an institution for 40 years, and throughout that time, many talented people have auditioned to be a part of various casts. It was inevitable that producer Lorne Michaels had to turn down some talented people, but we can’t believe he turned these famous faces down.
In an interview with the ‘Hollywood Reporter’, Lorne Michaels revealed some names that he had to turn away. “Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell auditioned,” he said.
Michaels was asked if there was anyone he wanted to hire but didn’t at the time. Lorne was candid, saying, “There were lots of people who you’d see how brilliant they were, but you knew on some level that it wasn’t going to work.”
