In this great new interview with SNL’s Jason Sudeikis in Vanity Fair, he reveals that when he was performing in Vegas with Second City, he became buddies with the guys in the Blue Man Group. And then he became obsessed with joining them.
Did you practice?I was hardcore, man. I would sit next to the mirror with drum pads and the official Blue Man sticks that friends had given me. I practiced incessantly. I would do it in between shows at the Second City, at intermission. Everybody else in the cast would be playing Soulcalibur on Dreamcast and I’d be in the corner drilling this thing, not realizing how fucking annoying it must’ve been.
The rest of the interview is great as well, including stories about the SNL and Man Men casts’ joint love of brown liquor. My kind of people. [via]
