Aleksander Chan · 09/16/14 08:10AM

Bill Hader stopped by to chat with his old pal Seth Meyers on Late Night last night, where the two reminisced on their weepy SNL parting and the faux Stefon-Seth wedding. Known as a character primarily comprised of Hader breaking into laughter, he explained that the reason Stefon always put his hands up to his face was because the way Meyers would respond to the character made him laugh, too. "A person being patient with an insane person is my favorite thing in the world," he said.

As part of his pitch to J.J. Abrams for a role in the new Star Wars films, Bill Hader showed Conan O'Brien his best imitations of two lesser known characters. You've never seen a better impression of dying tauntaun. And Hader's Jabba the Hutt isn't bad either.

Saturday Night Live opened its 37th season tonight with a parody of Thursday's Fox News/Google Republican presidential debate. Despite being too long and wrought with cliche—Newt Gingrich has a huge head! Michele Bachmann's eyes are crazy!—the sketch managed to work thanks to Bill Hader as debate moderator Shep Smith and Alec Baldwin as the same confused, babbling version of Rick Perry that showed up to the real thing. A video of highlights is above; the full sketch is viewable here.

Here's the Only Part of This Week's SNL Worth Watching

Matt Cherette · 05/08/11 12:03AM

So, Tina Fey hosted Saturday Night Live this week! She was OK, but nothing from the episode really stood out... that is, until Bill Hader reprised his role as Stefon—Weekend Update's club-hopping "City Correspondent"—who came armed with the most ridiculous suggestions imaginable for a Mother's Day out. The bit succeeded in its own right, but the fact that Hader broke character about 20 times to regain his composure made everything funnier.

Bill Hader On Paul, Comic Books, and "Nerd Porn"

SNL's resident alien Bill "Greg" Hader plays an ET-hunting G-man in Paul, but in reality he's comfortingly nerdy, bonding with the film's cast over comics and re-enacting all of the other iconic movies filmed in Las Vegas, New Mexico.
