Seann William Scott Looks Back on 'SNL's Classic "Patriotic Shorts" Sketch

Seann William Scott was a guest on last night's Late Night, and since he and Seth Meyers hadn't seen each other since he hosted SNL in October 2001, the guys decided to take a look back on a sketch from his episode, and one of SNL's funniest Will Ferrell sketches ever, "Patriotic Shorts." Thanks to Ferrell's incredible performance, Scott admits he still gets "Will Ferrell nutsack flashbacks" every now and then.

Rob Huebel Got Slapped in the Face by Chevy Chase at UCB

They say "Never meet your heroes," but Rob Huebel disagrees, and that's saying a lot considering his hero slapped him in the face when he tried to introduce himself. Of course, when your hero is Chevy Chase, you should expect nothing less. Check out two more clips from Huebel's Late Night interview below:

'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:

Whether you're a fan of The Blacklist or have never watched an episode in your life, you can still enjoy writer Conner O'Malley's independently made version of the show that aired on last night's Late Night.

Seth Meyers Spends a Day at Yankee Stadium

Here's a clip from last night's Late Night, in which Seth Meyers heads to Yankee Stadium for a day: "It's April in New York City, it's fucking freezing, which means it's time for some baseball!" Meyers meets a Yankees bat boy, locker room attendant, organist, beer vendor, and radio announcer Michael Kay and also gets some good practice hitting Late Night writer Seth Reiss with bags of peanuts.

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

Watch another clip from Nanjiani's interview below:

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

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.
