Marc Maron Interviews Lorne Michaels for ‘WTF’ Today

lorne michaelsApparently all Marc Maron needed to do to land a WTF interview with Lorne Michaels is interview President Obama first. While at the New Yorker Festival over the weekend, Maron revealed that he has a WTF interview with the SNL boss in the works, and the talk is scheduled for today:

Speaking of the president, when Sanneh mentioned that Obama’s episode answered the recurring question of who would be harder to book, the president or Lorne Michaels, Maron calmly responded, “Turns out the president is easier to book than Lorne Michaels.” But he added, “I’m going to talk to Lorne Michaels — it’s going to happen. It’s going to happen on Monday.”

Considering Maron’s past with SNL as the Weekend Update anchor that never was, it should make for a fascinating interview, but Maron was understandably nervous about it on Saturday. “I’m set up for something to be horrible. I don’t have the right attitude for this interview,” he said. “I have like some daddy shit to work out … The best and worst thing Lorne Michaels can do is when I go, ‘That day that I came in here for the meeting,’ and he goes ‘I have no recollection.’ That would be so amazing. I would cry.”
