If you ever feel despondent about your future, just think of this:
  He may be a star on SNL now, but this was Taran Killam 10 years ago.

↳The DCOM Stuck in the Suburbs (2004) turns 10 this year

I thought this was an SNL skit

You can see Nasim Pedrad being hilarious on Saturday Night Live every week, but one of her first acting credits was as a waitress in a season 6 episode of Gilmore Girls.

Thanks, wabajisik!

We’ve spotted another SNL famous face! Bill Hader appeared as a field agent in an episode of Punk’d, where he pulled a prank on Ashlee Simpson (it’s not what you think, it had nothing to do with her SNL mishap).

OMG! Splendid spot, downeyjred!

We’ve spotted him a couple times before in a wide variety of shows, but here’s Saturday Night Live's Taran Killam back in 2009 as Jimmy - The Overly Touchy Orderly in a few episodes of Scrubs!

Amazing find, Kylee and socerlord14!

Before Will Forte (of SNL fame) dressed in drag and went on a sexual walkabout as Jenna’s boyfriend Paul Lastname on 30 Rock, he popped up in a Season 1 episode (Black Tie) of the same show, playing a messenger for Prince Gerhardt Hapsburg. Is Paul leading a double life?! …TWIST!

Clever find, z-unit!

Saturday Night Live alum Maya Rudolph is better known for her work in the world of sketch comedy, frequently portraying glamorous divas like Whitney Houston and Beyonce. She’s also currently starring on NBC’s Up All Night as tv show host and lifestyle guru (and glamorous diva) Oprah Ava. But back in 1997 she was no less glamorous (but much less a diva) as an NYPD officer in As Good As It Gets.

Thanks, mr-suttonfoster!

We could post screen caps for this one but really, everyone has to see this video (if you somehow haven’t already). It’s Jimmy Fallon’s amazing video for his song Idiot Boyfriend but as an added bonus…a blonde Zooey Deschanel plays Jimmy’s girlfriend!

Well this one is legendary, wait for it….dary! Most people recognize Will Forte for his many amazing characters on Saturday Night Live but he was also Barney’s koala bear meat loving, “ex-cop” back-up-bro in an episode of How I Met Your Mother.
