Former “Saturday Night Live” funnyman Bill Hader was on “Conan” Monday (Jan. 27), touching on a variety of subjects — everything from “Star Wars” impressions to the time he grossed out Kathie Lee Gifford on “Today.” But perhaps his funniest anecdote was about his new movie “The Skeleton Twins.”
The movie, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, is about estranged twins (Hader and former “SNL” co-star Kristen Wiig) who reunite after separately cheating death on the same day. “Modern Family” star Ty Burrell is also in the movie, but his big make-out scene with Hader ended up on the cutting room floor.
“He and I, in this film, play ex-lovers and we have a pretty — they cut it from the movie — but we had a pretty hot make-out scene. … They cut it out of the movie, which really bummed me out,” Hader says. “I called Ty and I was like, ‘Remember that wonderful night we had together? Well, they cut it.'”
He also says the day they shot that scene, he got home and his wife Maggie Carey, who has a huge crush on Burrell, gave Hader a big kiss and goes, “That’s the closest I’ll ever come to kissing Ty Burrell.”
Below, Hader regales Conan with all sorts of delightful anecdotes, like how awkward he was visiting the Playboy mansion and how Stefon fans … have some pretty lusty feelings toward his “SNL” character.
“One time I was sitting there, I was on a corner with our daughter Harper, she’s like five-months-old in a Baby Bjorn, and a guy walks right up and goes, ‘I so wanna f*** Stefon.’ and I’m like, ‘Aww, thank you so much. That’s very sweet of you.’
