Saturday Night Live star joins Steve McQueen’s Twelve Years A Slave

Oscar nominee Kristen Wiig recently abandoned her posting at Saturday Night Live with a big career in film ahead of her. The question now is: who will be the next big breakout star of SNL?

A case could be made for Taran Killam, who has just signed on to Steve McQueen‘s new film Twelve Years A SlaveDeadline reports. But unlike Wiig’s Bridesmaidsthis is no raunchy comedy.

Twelve Years A Slave marks McQueen’s follow-up to Hunger and Shameand sees him reunite once again with Michael Fassbender.

Killam will appear as a traveling showman who abducts a black man (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and sells him into slavery.

Brad Pitt and Paul Dano also star.

It is unknown if Killam will use his supreme dancing skills here.

Discuss: An interesting role for Killam?
