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 [...]
What a weepy week it was for comedy nerds. NBC packed a double-whammy of goodbyes, with The Office's poignant series finale last Thursday, followed by Saturday's season finale of Saturday Night Live and final episode to feature Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and (perhaps) Jason Sudeikis as regular cast members, which was announced only days before. It is indeed the end of an era, not just for the network, but for TV comedy as a whole, and we will talk plenty more about this changing landscape over the coming days, weeks, and months.
Unlike last year's farewell to Kristen Wiig, which had a best-of-Wiig vibe that unfortunately repeated itself a week [...]
With today's news that Bill Hader is leaving Saturday Night Live after eight seasons as a wildly-popular cast member on the show, we've collected videos of Hader's best sketches for a nice look back at the excellent work he's done on SNL. From characters like everybody's favorite clubhopper Stefon to ancient reporter Herb Welch and dead-on impressions of Al Pacino, Alan Alda, and Vincent Price, they're all here. SNL has some awfully big shoes to fill next year.
Check out a ton of classic Bill Hader sketches below:
On October 1, 2005 Bill Hader debuted on SNL, feeling lucky and surprised to be there. Now, seven years later, it seems like not much has changed. Hader might be entering his eighth season as the first male cast member since Eddie Murphy to be nominated for an Emmy for his performance on the show, but his attitude is still of the humble guy who was shocked even to be asked to audition for SNL in the first place. With the new season set to start this Saturday, September 15, Hader is not thinking if this will be his last year on the show or if the Emmy nomination [...]
Ooooooh, Stefon has a Yelp page. And about time, too. How else would we know about New York's hottest clubs?
This club has EVERYTHING. Jeffries, live-action Furbies, Jewish pole vaulters, closeted guidos and flaming straight guys making out with none other than THE Nelson Mandela!
And just when you think it's all over, walk into the back room to be met by a gaggle of human donkeys.
What are human donkeys you ask? It's like that thing, where you have a midget glue some big ears on, wear a Mexican blanket, and carry your stuff over their back in wicker baskets.
It's unclear if his account [...]
