Bobby Moynihan to Star in CBS Comedy Pilot ‘Me, Myself and I’
Bobby Moynihan just got cast in a pilot that could mean the end of his longtime post at SNL. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Moynihan has signed on to star in a CBS comedy pilot from Dan Kopelman called Me, Myself and I. The single-cam comedy “examines one man’s life over a 50-year span. It focuses on three distinct periods in his life — as a 14-year-old in 1991, a 40-year-old in present day and a 65-year-old in 2042.” Moynihan will star as the present-day version of Alex Riley, “a lifelong inventor who is always trying to glimpse into the future. But, to get over his current case of inventor’s block, Alex must instead look to his past.” Kelen Coleman and Brian Unger round out the cast of the pilot, and as THR notes, past SNL cast members who joined pilots — including Will Forte, Andy Samberg, and Nasim Pedrad — have all left the show after their projects landed series orders. Moynihan currently ranks as one of SNL’s top 10 longest-tenured cast members ever; he originally joined the cast in 2008.
