Why Was Pete Davidson A No-Show At SNL This Weekend?

September 30, 2019

Pete Davidson was a no-show on the season 45 premiere of Saturday Night Live on Saturday, September 28, but the entertainer had another commitment — a film role.

The 25-year-old comedian was in Atlanta filming for the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel. Director James Gunn posted a photo on Saturday of some of the cast — including Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Nathan Fillion —after a private screening of Joker.

It’s unconfirmed what Davidson’s role will be in the film, which is expected to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2021.
