Kate McKinnon finally gets lead role in a movie

Saturday Night Live’s Kate McKinnon may not have much use for her Hillary Clinton character post-election but she will have plenty else to do.

After supporting parts in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot and the new release Christmas Office Party, McKinnon has landed the title role in the comedy The Lunch Witch.

The lesbian actress will play the character of Grunhilda whose female ancestors have stirred up trouble in a big, black pot for generations, according to Deadline Hollywood.

While Grunhilda inherits her famous ancestors’ recipes and cauldron, no one believes in magic anymore.

So she gets herself hire on as school lunch lady where she gets her kicks out of scaring the kids.

But then she meets Madison, a timid little girl with a big set of glasses who becomes an unlikely friend.

Since joining SNL in 2012, McKinnon has become a breakout star especially during the recent presidential election when Clinton was running against Donald Trump.

Particularly memorable were her debate sketches opposite Alec Baldwin as Trump.

In September, McKinnon won an Emmy for her work on the long-running show in the category of outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.

Looks like she is a supporting actress no more.

3 Remarks

  1. This talented lady richly deserves whatever good fortune comes her way. Bravo!

  2. God I was looking forward to her playing Hillary for at least 4 years.

    Because of the electoral college 46% get to decide who POTUS is while the majority voted for Hillary. Time to evolve.

  3. I absolutely adore Kate! She is so funny and talented. Can’t wait to see Office Christmas Party and this new movie. She’s going to be a huge star…but I think she is already.
