What are the cast doing?

Now that it's summer vacation, the cast of SNL are now involved in a whole variety of projects, which are outlined below:
Fred Armisen is going to star in the upcoming "The Rocker" which also stars Rainn Wilson which tells the story of a failed drummer who is given another chance at fame.

According to IMDb, Fred has also just finished work on a film called The Post Grad Survival Guide which is due for release in 2009.
Fred is also part of the company of Celebrity Autobiography : In Their Own Words, which returns on September 8th.
Will Forte will be featured in the upcoming film "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" directed by John Krasinski. He is also listed as being in "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy", "Broken Lizard's the Slammin' Salmon" and "Party Boys". Will was also featured recently in How I Met Your Mother, and I read his name was submitted for consideration in the Emmy's, so keep an eye out in the Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series next Friday when nominations are announced!
Will is also part of Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words, an hilarious NY show which returns Sep. 8th.
Bill Hader is a busy bunny, which two completed films due for release soon; Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder. He has another film in post-production called Adventureland which co-stars fellow SNL-ER Kristen Wiig. He's also due to appear in sequels Night at the Museum 2 : Battle of the Smithsonian and Hoodwinked 2: Hood vs. Evil. Wow Bill, did I forget anything?
Darrell Hammond is starring in BuzzKill which co-stars Krysten Ritter and Daniel Raymont.
He is currently starring in a play called Beyond Therapy at the Bay Street Theater, NY until July 27th, so check it out :)
Weekend Update co-anchor Seth Meyers can currently be seen in summer blockbuster Journey to the Center of The Earth alongside Brendan Fraser. He also features in the upcoming Spring Breakdown, and a film based on an SNL skit from a few years ago called Key Party has been announced. Seth is set to write & star in the flick, which if anything like the sketch which originally featured in an episode of SNL hosted by Colin Farrell, is sure to be hilarious. :)
With a baby on the way, and a hit Nickelodeon cartoon under her belt, everything's coming up roses for Amy Poehler. Poehler is the co-creator of The Mighty B!, a Nickelodeon show about an over-achieving HoneyBee Scout called Bessie Higgenbottom, whom Amy also voices. Amy also stars in the upcoming film Spring Breakdown, and is also listed as starring in the sequel Hoodwinked 2 : Hood vs. Evil.
Andy Samberg can be heard in the upcoming animated flick "Space Chimps" as the star Ham III, the grandson of the first chimp astronaut. He is also featured in "I Love You, Man" alongside Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.

Space Chimps is released next week, so check it!
Jason was recently seen in What Happens in Vegas, and can be next seen in The Rocker which is out at the end of the month. He is also listed as being part of A Good Old Fashioned Orgy alongside Will Forte. The name alone made me laugh, so I can't wait to see this one :) Also, Jason MAY be in 30 Rock again next year. I didn't read that anywhere, I'm just saying, it's possible! For non 30 Rock fans, first of all, SHAME ON YOU, second of all, Jason played Floyd who was Tina Fey's character's love interest for a while. So, never say never!
Jason is also part of the company of Celebrity Autobiography : In Their Own Words, a hilarious NY show which sees comic stars read excerpts from celebrity autobiographies.
Kenan can also be heard in Space Chimps which opens next week as "Ringmaster". He is also filming a movie called Stan Helsing.

Kenan can also be heard in Amy Poehler's Nickelodeon Show The Mighty B! as Rocky. So keep an ear out for him!
Kristen will next be seen in Ghost Town which opens August 19th. It stars Ricky Gervais, Téa Leoni and Greg Kinnear.

Kristen also stars in the previously mentioned Adventureland, and All Good Things. She is also due to start work on the Drew Barrymore-directed movie Whip It, alongside Ellen Page and Barrymore.
SNL's newest star has a minor role in the upcoming Julie & Julia, and is currently filming Bride Wars which she also wrote with June Diane Raphael, Kristen Smith and Karen McCullah Lutz. Keep an eye on this one!
