SNL premiered this past weekend, with Woody Harrelson hosting and Billie Eilish performing, but one performer was notably absent. No scandal here though: turns out he had a perfectly good reason. Pete Davidson is part of the MASSIVE cast of the new Suicide Squad movie, which is currently filming in Atlanta, making it hard for him to be "live from New York" on Saturday nights. Here he is with his new film family, including original Suicide Squad cast member Margot Robbie and exciting NEW cast member Nathan Fillion:

Details about Pete's part in the movie are unclear at this time, and so is the amount of time he'll be away from Rockefeller Plaza. But we do know that The Suicide Squad (please don't call it Suicide Squad 2) is scheduled to come out on 8/6/21!
