List Criteria: Actors on the current season of Saturday Night Live

List of the best current Saturday Night Live cast members, as ranked by fans and casual critics. SNL has been on for 40 glorious seasons. The show has been known for scooping up the most talented improv and comedy actors on the underground circuit and turning them into comedy superstars. In 2012, many of the SNL cast members who were carrying the weight of the show for years - including Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen - left the cast and left plenty of room for newcomers to shine. The current cast of SNL is filled with newcomers who have yet to make a big name for themselves in sketch comedy. The present season has allowed these lesser known cast members to properly sparkle.
 

This list features long time cast members like Bobby Moynihan and long-time sketch comedy veteran Taran Killam, as well as newer faces like Leslie Jones and Pete Davidson who prove themselves on a weekly basis. Not only is individual comedy prowess important, illustrating an ability to work as a comedy team puts some of these cast members among the best of the best. The SNL current cast is versatile and can do it all. 
 

Who are the best SNL cast members still on the show? This list features the entire current cast, including repertory and featured players.
