1. Taran Killam is “The Guy” now
To be certain, he’s not exactly the unequivocal star of the show yet. But he’s the go- to guy that fills the roles previously inhabited by recently departed cast members such as Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis. Maybe it’s more accurate to call him “The Glue,” since he now holds so many sketches together with his multi-purpose skills. But he also has the power to get on characters such as Eddie, an unfunny character who if played by anyone other than Killam might not have gotten a second appearance. Killam has been poised to break through for a while now, and it looks like this is the year he finally will.
