Bobby Moynihan had cemented himself into the hearts of viewers everywhere as a series regular on Saturday Night Live for the better part of a decade, bringing the likes of Drunk Uncle and Beyoncé’s backup dancers to the late-night screen.
A new father, Moynihan, is clearly ready to move on from his memorable SNL turn and transition into projects that stretch his serious acting chops and not just the comedic ones — like new CBS show Me, Myself & I.
“One of the things that appealed to me the most about a script is that I could be an adult male in his 40s and not run onstage in a diaper,” Moynihan told EW on the transition from SNL. “I can actually have a serious conversation and have real problems and get to act a little bit.”
Me, Myself & I follows an inventor, Alex, at three different stages in his life: a bright-eyed teenager, in his 40s and hitting rock bottom, and in his 60s on the brink of retirement.

Me, Myself & I stars Moynihan alongside John Larroquette and Jaleel White. It premieres Monday at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
