Is Pete Davidson leaving 'SNL'? This is what he said!

The comedian discussed the posibility during The Hollywood Reporter's Comedy Actor Roundtable.

Pete Davidson may "hang up the jersey" on his Saturday Night Live days. 

The 27-year-old comedian hinted his desire to leave the show sometime in the future during a recent Comedy Actor Roundtable with The Hollywood Reporter alongside fellow SNL castmate Chris Redd.

When asked about the possibility of being on the show for 18 seasons like co-star Kenan Thompson, Redd answered, "I would never do 18 seasons". 

"Yeah, I'm good", Davidson added. "I'm surprised I made it to seven. I'm ready to hang up the jersey. Kenan's like f---in' Karl Malone out there."

The King of Staten Island star also revealed that he hopes to model his career going forward after fellow comedy legend Adam Sandler.

"I like what Sandler did where he's like, 'These are my eight friends, we're going to do this formula for the next 30 to 50 years", he said. "He built this entire universe for himself, and he's in his own lane. That's the model."

"Also, the way he carries himself I try to follow", Davidson added. "He's so kind to everyone, and you never hear of a Sandler issue — there's never like a Sandler-gate. Any time you see that guy's face, it’s associated with smiles and good vibes. That's the thing I'm trying to follow."
