Saturday Night Live is poised to lose two more key players, The New York Post reports. According to a source at NBC, Fred Armisen will be leaving, with Jason Sudeikis "probably" following suit.
Rumors of Sudeikis' departure from SNL have been going on nearly a year, while Armisen's appearances have become less frequent since his IFC sketch series Portlandia debuted in 2010.

The news comes within days of Bill Hader and Seth Meyers' confirmations that they will be exiting the long-running variety show. Meyers, who is leaving to take over Late Night in February 2014, will stay on through the fall, but this Saturday's finale will be Hader's final bow.
With the four veterans gone, Kenan Thompson would become SNL's most seasoned cast member, having been on 10 seasons. Bobby Moynihan, who's been around for five, would come next.
