Will Forte is gearing up to headline the brand new Fox comedy The Last Man on Earth. To promote the new comedy, he popped up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week. During his time on the show, however, he told Kimmel and the audience a great story about how he and Kristen Schaal ended up getting into high jinks in Kenan Thompson’s dressing room.
Back in 2012, the NBC sitcom 30 Rock decided to do a live episode. A live episode needs a stage, and since Saturday Night Live was on hiatus that week, the late night sketch series offered the comedy the use of its facilities. If you remember the episode, both Will Forte and Kristen Schaal were scheduled as guest stars and they spent part of the rehearsal hanging out in Kenan Thompson’s dressing room.
As I noted before, the two were up to shenanigans. There’s a part two to the story, however. Apparently, Forte and Schaal actually went a step further and sent the photos to Kenan, only to have him never respond.
I really, really hope he ended up sending those photos to someone who would appreciate them. The good news? Forte still had the photos he took with Schaal on his phone. Here’s the photo that spawned the epic story.
With all of the SNL set stories running around after the SNL 40 special, Forte’s amusing tale about another day on set is certainly timely. We just need to hope he brings the same sort of goofy humor to The Last Man On Earth, which hits the schedule on March 1. You can check out more from the Will Forte interview, below.
ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs on weeknights at 11:35 p.m.
Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
