  • SummaryAfter a two-year absence, the art of the Featured Player returns to SNL, as producer Lorne Michaels struggles to rebuild the male cast with the departure of Norm MacDonald and the reluncant firing of Jim Breuer. Gen-Xers Jimmy Fallon, Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz are the talented new guys joining the already-talented cast that includes annual favorites Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer, as well as continued promising performances by Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan, who enthrall the audience whenever they’re given a chance to perform on the show. Kattan gets away with an amusing Antonio Banderas parody, while Morgan shines in a live-action biography of yesteryear cartoon star Fat Albert, starting a new tradition of cast members portraying nearly forgotten cartoon characters.

    Among fan highlights for the 1998 season, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky makes several cameos during the Cuba Gooding, Jr.-hosted episode, youngest-host ever Drew Barrymore returns to host after seventeen years, and John Goodman celebrates his tenth time hosting, joining the higher ranks with original cast favorites Buck Henry and Steve Martin.
