I got an email from a Tallyhead about this a few nights ago …
Wanted to let you know that I just got back from rehearsing SNL!
I’m going to be in the opening sketch, the one before the monologue right when the show starts. It’s a graduation scene and Steve Carell will be reading my ‘name’ … we’re all in caps and gowns and it’s right at the start of the show.
As far as I know, it is still the first sketch but anything can happen between rehearsal and dress rehearsal tomorrow afternoon and then the show at night.
Steve is a GREAT guy, so nice and so incredible to watch rehearse. When we were done with our stuff, we were allowed to watch some of the other rehearsal and it’s one of the funniest all season — there is a hilarious weight loss sketch.
But yes, Steve is a GENIUS and it was so hard not to DIE on set with him when I’m so used to cracking up watching him on ‘The Office’ every week!!
Anyway, just wanted to let you know … thanks, and the show is HILARIOUS!!! Steve does an amazing job. There are also lots of special guests.
