NEW YORK (AP) – Bill Hader is leaving “Saturday Night Live” after an eight-year run.

His spokesman confirms that the 34-year-old comedian will depart “SNL” after this weekend’s season finale.

Hader joined the NBC sketch-comedy show in 2005. He has since made his mark with a range of impersonations including Al Pacino, Vincent Price, James Carville and Stefon, the hipster “Weekend Update” correspondent.

Hader’s films include “Superbad,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Knocked Up” and “Pineapple Express.”
