Macdonald joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 1993. He became best known there for his work on “Weekend Update,” which he began anchoring in 1994. His deadpan delivery became a signature of “Weekend Update,” where he often concentrated on hectoring celebrities including Michael Jackson (1958–2009), Bill Clinton, and O.J. Simpson, particularly when Simpson’s high-profile trial dominated the news. Macdonald’s “Weekend Update” style proved influential on the segment’s future. Macdonald was also known of SNL for his impressions of celebrities including Quentin Tarantino, Burt Reynolds (1936–2018), and Larry King (1933–2021).
