Even Though Bill Hader Doesn’t Want a Stefon Movie, He and John Mulaney Had an Idea for One

Bill Hader was the guest on the latest episode of Hulu’s Larry King Now, and Larry King asked him if Stefon could live on beyond Saturday Night Live. “Possibly,” Hader answered. King suggested a Stefon-based sitcom, to which Hader replied, “A sitcom? I haven’t heard that one. People always talk about a movie. A Stefon sitcom would actually be pretty great. Do it multi-camera, and he has, like, a normal neighbor and stuff.”

Hader revealed that he and SNL writer John Mulaney had an idea for a Stefon movie but weren’t interested. Here’s what he said:

“We did have an idea for a movie. We talked a little bit about an idea for a movie and then we were like, ‘I don’t think it will work,’ but we did have one funny scene which was making John and I laugh, which was Stefon coming out to his family, and his parents are blue collar people from the Bronx. And he’s like, ‘Mom, Dad, you’re probably wondering why I haven’t gotten married yet.’ ‘You just haven’t met the right girl! that’s all!'”

A few months ago, Hader spoke on a Stefon movie, saying, “There’s no emotional through line. Sometimes people say to me ‘I want a Stefon movie’ and I’m like, you think you want a Stefon movie but then you’ll see the poster for it and think, ‘Wait, I don’t want this.'”
