Bill Hader is leaving ‘Saturday Night Live’

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 (inset) 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.’’
