Don Pardo

Missed 'SNL' Gig

After Suffering Broken Hip

3/3/2013 10:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0303-don-pardo-gettyDon Pardo was conspicuously absent from the opening credits of "Saturday Night Live" last night ... and TMZ has learned it's because he recently suffered a broken hip.

"SNL" fans immediately noticed the voice that announced the cast last was NOT that of Pardo's ... despite the poor attempt at an impression.

But rest assured, Pardo is ok ... our sources say he is recovering from a broken hip and doing just fine. 

Pardo has been doing "Saturday Night Live" since the show first premiered in 1975, missing only one season along the way.

Last night's episode was awful.
Kevin Hart tried hard, but the writing/skits were horrible.

Friends, can we please put this 90 plus year old out to pasture and replace him with a new voice? Yes, Pardo is legendary and yes, his voice is undeniable. However, it's time that SNL hire a new voice to start the transition. How much longer will he be around, for crying out loud? I wish he could be around forever. We all do. Let this great man spend the rest of his available time not worrying about any more work. I 'm sure that we all agree that he deserves it.
