Beck Bennett (October 1, 1984) is an American actor, comedian, and writer best known for Saturday Night Live.
Beck came onto the show during its 39th season (2013-2014), when the show packed its cast with newbies to fill the void left behind by Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and Jason Sudeikis. In spite of this, there were complaints that the show had no diversity (by which, they mean, "an African-American female", never mind that the new cast members hired at that time consisted of John Milhiser, the show's first openly gay male since Terry Sweeney in 1985, and Noel Wells, the show's first Mexican-American cast membernote and the first to have heritage in a North African countrynote ) and most people focused on that instead of the talent they had on hand. This was doubly bad, as the show also hired Kyle Mooney, Beck's friend and comedy partner for their viral video sketch troupe, "Good Neighbor" and the videos the two put out didn't have the instant success that Andy Samberg's "Lonely Island" videos did.
In spite of all of this, Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooneynote were picked to go on to the next season, while most of the new cast were let gonote . As they stayed on the show, more of Beck and Kyle's sketches were featured and Beck made a name for himself with his celebrity impressions, such as Vladimir Putin, Nick Offerman, Mitch McConnell, Javier Bardem, Guillermo del Toro, Mike Pence, and Jake Tapper.
He is married to actress Jessy Hodges.
