Paula Pell Looks Back on 'SNL's 40th Anniversary Special on 'Late Night'

The lovely and always entertaining talk show guest Paula Pell stopped by last night's Late Night, where she and Meyers talked about everything from her work on the upcoming Tina Fey/Amy Poehler movie Sisters to what it's like to be a script doctor for other movies to the SNL 40th anniversary special cold open she wrote with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. Pell also reveals that her Above Average web series with James Anderson Hudson Valley Ballers will return for a new season sometime this year. Watch more from the interview below:

Hannah Horvath Spends an Hour on the 'Late Night' Writing Staff

Late Night with Seth Meyers recently hired a brand new writer named Hannah Horvath to bring in some fresh sketch ideas, but her time on the writing staff didn't last very long. While she does have some solid bagel-related suggestions, her pitches — like "Would You Masturbate to This?" and "Degrading Fetishes or Empowering Sexual Acts?" — sadly aren't the best fit for the show.

Colin Quinn Thinks Bill Hader Is Too Kind to Be Trusted

Here's a clip from Colin Quinn's visit to last night's Late Night, where he and Meyers talked about his new web series Cop Show, upcoming book, some of the Oscars jokes he offered Neil Patrick Harris during Sunday's ceremony, and his stance on nice comedians: "I don't trust kind people in comedy. There's something weird about it." Unsurprisingly, this makes Bill Hader the most untrustworthy person in the world.

Fred Armisen Is Hosting the Lipstick Makers All-Star Weekend

While NBA All-Star Weekend takes place in New York City this weekend, Fred Armisen will be hosting a completely different all-star weekend for the lipstick makers of the world, and it sounds pretty exciting.

Brooks Wheelan Visits His Old 'SNL' Boss Seth Meyers

As if Brooks Wheelan hasn't already proven himself to be one of the best examples of a fired SNL cast member bouncing back from the setback, last night he visited his old SNL boss Seth Meyers at Late Night to look back on his time at the show ("One year — boom, I'm out, man. I Martin Shorted that thing"), why he didn't like living in the "garbage town" known as New York City, and an SNL sketch of his that got cut called "Buff Boys." Watch more from Wheelan's interview below:

Ben Stiller Plays Beastie Boys Lyrics Trivia on 'Late Night'

Having performed live with the Beastie Boys before, Ben Stiller considers himself a pretty big fan, so during last night's Late Night Seth Meyers put Stiller's fandom to the test with some on-the-spot Beastie Boys lyrics trivia. Check out another clip from Stiller's Late Night visit below:

Robert Smigel Looks Back on His 'Hans and Franz' Movie That Never Got Made

Here's a backstage clip of Robert Smigel at Late Night looking back on one of his SNL movies that never came to be — a "Hans and Franz" musical co-written with Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon, and Conan O'Brien that involved Arnold Schwarzenegger, a musical number called "Play It Cool," and muscle dancing. It's truly a shame this idea never made it to the big screen.

The 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Talk the Series Finale on 'Late Night'

'Late Night' Writers Michelle Wolf and Amber Ruffin Ask New Yorkers Awkward Questions

Late Night debuted a new segment last night called "Three Questions with Amber and Michelle," in which writers Amber Ruffin and Michelle Wolf venture out into New York City to ask people on the street three questions. The first two questions are innocent enough, but then things get super weird. Hang in there, ladies: You'll both have it all one day.

Will Forte Shares More "Second Chance Theatre" Ideas on 'Late Night'

Will Forte paid a visit to his old friend Seth Meyers last night, and the two looked back at some of Forte's cut SNL sketches — including a metal detector sketch called "Finders Keepers" and a very meta "Falconer" sketch with Rainn Wilson — to possibly revisit in an upcoming "Second Chance Theatre" segment. Meyers also played a brief clip of Forte giving a speech as his white supremacist character Hamilton at Meyers' wedding rehearsal dinner, which you can check out below:
