BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Andy Samberg wants ousted "Saturday Night Live" cast members to know there is life after the comedy show.

Brooks Wheelan tweeted earlier this week that he had been fired from the NBC sketch comedy series.

A source familiar with casting but not authorized to speak on the record told The Associated Press that he would not be returning in the fall.

Talking to journalists Wednesday at a Television Critics Association set visit for Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," Samberg said, "If you were hired ... there's something good going on with you."

Samberg was a featured cast member on "SNL" from 2005 to 2012.

The 35-year-old returned to guest host earlier this year after winning the Golden Globe Award for best actor in a television series musical or comedy for "Nine-Nine."

He said the only difference about hosting was that he didn't worry about being cut from the episode.

He joked, "When I order a coffee, it comes sooner because I don't have to wait for 30 other people's coffees. Other than that it's almost exactly the same."

Samberg is happy to be back in California to film "Nine-Nine" because he was raised in Berkeley. He also says it's better for his marriage (he wed musician Joanna Newsom last September).

"The schedule (now) is much better. ... 'SNL' is notoriously bad for a relationship," he said.
