Is Taran Killam going to SNL?

So, in the wake of the news that Will Forte is leaving SNL, it does give rise to the question - who is headed to SNL? There's been a lot of names batted around - Paul Downs of UCB and The Paul Downs Syndrome is supposed to have auditioned - but one that keeps popping up again and again is Taran Killam of Groundlings . Who is Taran Killam, you ask? Well, he's got a pretty impressive resume. He was on MadTV for 13 episodes between 2001 and 2002 and has since amassed credits in How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Epic Movie and My Best Friend's Girl. 

Now, I have to mention that nothing has been confirmed and any news surrounding hirings at the moment is speculative, unconfirmed and unsubstantiated. But, we should have an announcement by the week after next, if not sooner (The New York Times mentioned in their article that contracts for new cast member/s should be signed by Labor Day Weekend.) Then we'll discover if Killam will be treading the boards at Studio 8H!
