Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[re his audition with Lorne Michaels for 'SNL'] I said: 'I don't want to be so presumptuous to say I'll come on your show and I'll kill. But I definitely think if you hired me, I'd do a very good job'. He said: 'No, no, no, no. Confidence isn't your problem.' And he just left it at that. But all I could think is: 'Wait, what is my problem? Tell me what my problem is, I'll fix it!'

Trivia:

His great-aunt is actress Rosemarie Stack and his great-uncle was Rosemarie's husband, actor Robert Stack. See more »
