I think Steve Martin gets the most respect of any of his previous SNL crew. He's certainly has more success, and can play a wider range of parts. I still love him in Little Shop of Horrors! He was my favorite host, along with Jones, in Fantasia 2000. I'd love to see him do more Disney stuff in the future...
Steve Martin was never an official cast member of SNL. But he was always on and always funny.

Plus he has a lucrative production deal with touchstone ( a division of disney) with at least one of his films in production. Also, his most recent success was a touchstone film- ever notice how people who find sucess with Disney tend to stick with them? (Owen Wilson, Nic Cage, Lindsey Lohan, Jackie Chan, Kyrt Russell, just to name a few)

Once had a job at Disneyland in the Magic Shop on Main Street, USA. He also worked for neighboring amusement park Knott's Berry Farm as a comedian in their "Birdcage Theatre". It was during these jobs that he honed his skills in live performance, such as improv comedy, banjo playing, juggling, and lassoing.
Contrary to popular belief, Martin was never a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" (1975). However, he holds the records for guest appearances (25) on the show (followed closely by Buck Henry), hosting (at 13 times, he sets the standard for the SNL "Five Timers Club"), and hosting in a single season (3). He is also the only person to have hosted a season premiere, a season finale, and a Christmas show.

I could have sworn I saw Steve Martin working in the Fantansyland Magic store when I was a kid. Might be my imagination, or it could just be he worked both Magic stores and they don't like to talk about the one they took out.
