| August 19, 2010 - 5:39 am

Just as quickly as the surprising news of the split between Saturday Night Live stalwart Fred Armisen and Mad Men starlet Elisabeth Moss spread, a new report claims that Armisen is now dating fellow SNL cast member Abby Elliott.

Life & Style, who broke the news of the Armisen-Moss split, now reports that Armisen — who is 20 years older than the 23-year-old Elliott — have been ramping up their relationship lately. According to a source, a heartbroken Armisen:

sought comfort in Abby. They just started dating a few months ago … Fred and Abby are getting to know each other in a romantic way and taking things very slowly but enjoying each other’s company.

The magazine also reached out to a friend of Elisabeth, who said that she “is doing great and focused on Mad Men and is enjoying the single life. This news won’t even phase her.”

Armisen is best known for his impression of President Barack Obama on SNL. Elliott, who is the daughter of SNL alumnus Chris Elliott, joined the show in 2008. In the skit below, watch Abby go toe-to-toe with Taylor Lautner in a Team Edward/Jacob-inspired SNL segment:
