Marc Maron has turned his rejection from SNL into a fascinating self-discovery. In 1995, Maron was considered to replace Norm MacDonald as anchor of "Weekend Update." He even got a sit-down with SNL boss Lorne Michaels but failed to get hired. It is something Maron has agonized over ever since.

Years later, Maron had Michaels on his widely successful WTF podcast to clear the air about the meeting. In short, Michaels like Maron, but the timing wasn’t right. Though Maron can’t be blamed for wondering what might have been, surely now he can see his career has worked out fine without SNL.
