Nicholas Braun Cast as Jim Henson in SNL 1975

Nicholas Braun has been cast as Jim Henson in SNL 1975, the Sony Pictures project set to tell the story of the earliest days of Saturday Night Live.

As the beloved creator of The Muppets, Braun will be joining the previously announced Gabriel LaBelle, who will be portraying series creator Lorne Michaels, as well as Rachel Sennott, Dylan O’Brien, Cooper Hoffman, and Lamorne Morris.

Deadline has also confirmed that stage actor Nicholas Podany is set to portray Billy Crystal, while head writer Michael O’Donoghue will be played by Tommy Dewey.

SNL 1975 will be directed by Jason Reitman, who co-wrote the project with Gil Kenan and reportedly interviewed all living cast members and prominent crew of the program to build the story’s narrative.

Meanwhile, Braun is fresh off the awards circuit for the final season of Succession, which took home six Emmys at its final outing for the awards show in January. See where Succession fell in our ranking of the best TV shows of 2023.
