On hosting Saturday Night Live: “I’m so excited to host SNL. It’s been a dream of mine since I was like 10 years old. I mean, improv is pretty much how I got started. They do more sketch comedy but this is how I started. This is what I want to get back to. I think it’s going to be a great week. I can’t wait.”
On getting slapped by all the ladies in the flick: “It was amazing watching everybody have so much fun that night. No, it was funny, it started slow and Tom was very nice about it. He was like, ‘There’s no way to fake a slap. We’re just going to have to go for it’. And he did. He knew how to do it. We had a stunt coordinator that day who was instructing everyone how to slap and he goes, ‘You guys really got to sell it! You have to slap him!’ And I’m sitting there like ‘they’re slapping me, bro!’
On the light-saber fight with costar Tom Lennon: “Yes [it was fun]. I hit Tom [in the head]. There were a couple injuries, but I hit Tom pretty hard one day and I just thank God it was during rehearsals with the rehearsal light sabers because if we had been filming a real take, we’d use real light sabers. I’m pretty sure he would have had less face right now.”
17 Again hits theaters THIS Friday!
