I love Kate McKin­non on Satur­day Night Live. Will she be the show’s next break­out star?

A: She al­ready is! The Sea Cliff, N.Y., na­tive, 32, has made five movies this year: You heard her voice if you saw The An­gry Birds Movie and Find­ing Dory, and she was one of the high­lights of Ghost­busters. Watch for her in Mas­ter­minds (Sept. 30) and Of­fice Christ­mas Party (Dec. 9). She’s nom­i­nated for an Emmy (Out­stand­ing Sup­port­ing Ac­tress in a Com­edy Se­ries) for SNL, re­turn­ing to NBC Oct. 1, on which she’s de­lighted au­di­ences im­per­son­at­ing Hil­lary Clin­ton, Justin Bieber, Ruth Bader Gins­berg and oth­ers. “It’s just the great­est job in the world,” she says.

With Kevin James’ suc­cess in movies like Paul Blart: Mall Cop, why did he want to do an­other TV se­ries?

A: James, 51, had such a good ex­pe­ri­ence on The King of Queens, he was ready to do it again—es­pe­cially when he found out that Kevin Can Wait, pre­mier­ing Sept. 19 on CBS, about a re­tired cop who be­comes a stay-ath­ome dad, would be a fam­ily com­edy. “It’s im­por­tant for me to do a show that you can watch with your kids and have a good time,” he says.
