With all those mentioned credits, plus more, there’s a chance you had recognized Cecily Strong and Adam Scott from their earlier work. However, most likely, it’s what they’ve been part of recently that sparked your recognition. For Cecily Strong, there’s one credit on her résumé that has lasted an impressive amount of time, especially compared to her previous work.
Strong joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 2012, most known for her weekly segment on the show’s Weekend Update. While teaming up with Seth Meyers, the duo crushed the news every week, becoming one of the show’s best comedic commentary conductors ever. Strong worked her way into the sketch segments (deservedly), becoming one of the most featured cast members on the show. Her popularity helped her continue to join other outside projects, including the reboot of “Ghostbusters.”
As for Adam Scott, single-camera sitcom fans will most likely recognize him from either starring in the series “Party Down,” where he played a struggling actor making ends meet in a catering business, or as Leslie Knope’s love interest in the hit series, “Parks and Recreations.” However, if those options haven’t sparked any familiarity, then his new show, “Severance,” most likely will. The award-winning drama series, ironically, streams on Apple TV, one of the very perks he and Cecily are enjoying with their new Verizon plan!
