Tim "Boo" Calhoun is a recurring character on Saturday Night Live played by Will Forte who is usually seen on the Weekend Update segment. He is a soft-spoken political candidate with slicked back hair, a slight Southern drawl, and many unconventional ideas. Calhoun is also a career criminal with many arrests, which he often inadvertently mentions. Constantly nervous and fidgety, Calhoun reads his speeches from index cards which he stacks neatly on the table as he finishes each one. Usually, the final word in his statements are on a separate card. His voice is exaggeratedly slow and deliberate, hardly rising above a whisper. When talking, he moves his extended index and middle fingers up and down.


  • His only non-Weekend Update appearance was on March 6, 2004 where he appeared on the "Trial" sketch.
  • has 2 extra toes and webbed feet (34 - 5)
  • On June 23 2016, Forte reprised the character in a segment for The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon
