Rumor: Mary Faber Eyed as Possible SNL Cast Member

The Apiary is reporting that SNL is possibly looking at adding Mary Faber to its cast. While it is just a rumor at this point, sources tell The Apiary that Faber recently tested for the show. Faber is best known for her work on Broadway, where she is currently starring opposite Daniel Radcliffe in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. She has also starred in American Idiot and Avenue Q. Faber has also studied improv at UCB and The PIT.

Below is her SNL audition reel, introduced by Daniel Radcliffe, no less. In it, she displays a great knack for characters and could really bring a fun and lively energy, as well as a more theatrical sensibility (reminiscent of Ana Gasteyer, perhaps) to the show.
