‘SNL’ Alum Michaela Watkins Joins Bradley Whitford’s ABC Pilot ‘Trophy Wife’

Talented ex-SNL-er Michaela Watkins just landed a new gig on the ABC pilot Trophy Wife, starring Malin Åkerman and Bradley Whitford, according to Deadline. We reported yesterday that the show follows Åkerman falling in love with Whitford, only to find herself constantly dealing with his kids and ex-wives. Marcia Gay Harden will play one of the ex-wives and Michaela Watkins will play the other. Watkins was unceremoniously let go from SNL after the 2008-09 season, her first, along with the also-amazing Casey Wilson. Hopefully, Trophy Wife will do for Michaela Watkins what fellow ABC comedy Happy Endings has done for Casey Wilson.
