[ applause ] >> seth: that's really exciting. >> it is. yeah. >> seth: you were into musicals. >> i was all about 'em. >> seth: still into musicals. >> love them. >> seth: you did some of the big ones back in your school days. >> sure. sure, sure. >> seth: you did "evita," right? >> i did "evita." i was che. obviously. >> seth: real good. >> che guevara. and introducing taran killam as revolutionary -- >> seth: did you -- >> che guevara. >> seth: so i grew up in new hampshire and we had some ethnicity problems with casting in our shows. >> great. >> seth: as evidence by the fact that my brother, who is actually even a little bit whiter than me, played leroy in "fame." [ laughter ] >> great. fantastic.
>> seth: and speaking of musicals and your brother, he wrote a musical episode of "the awesomes." >> seth: yes. >> for season three that's coming up. >> seth: so you got to do some singing there. >> i love it, yeah. any opportunity. >> seth: is this high school where you were doing the most musicals? >> it started real strong in middle school. winthrop, "music man"; joseph, "joseph." >> seth: wow. >> yeah. then scarecrow, "wizard of oz." and then, freshman year, things fell apart. >> seth: oh no. >> a little bit. a little bit. i was about 98 pounds, 4'11." >> seth: sure. >> and really wanted to fit in with the jocks. >> seth: oh, no. >> decided that that was my crew. >> seth: so you raced away from your starring rolls on musicals. >> nothing is guaranteed in the world of the theater, as we know. >> seth: sure. [ laughter ] whereas there's no steadier paycheck than professional athletes. >> exactly. especially when you're about the build of an actress that would play "annie." >> seth: gotcha. >> so i abstained from
auditioning from the musical, which was an original that reno hollar, who was a musician and also our world history teacher -- many hats. >> seth: wait, so your world history teacher wrote the school musical? >> wrote and original musical called "lovers on canvas," about a painter who lives in paris, but has magical paint. he draws the girl of his dreams and she comes to life at night. and all his paintings come to life. it was actually really fun had i gotten the role of the painter. >> seth: that seems like the big part. >> trying out for the baseball team, which again, spoiler alert, i did not make. [ light laughter ] >> seth: okay. >> i think it might have had something to do with not having the arm strength to make the cutoff man from left field. >> seth: oh, yeah. that's tough. >> i think that's where -- >> seth: because the cutoff man is already the stop gap for someone with a bad arm. >> that's the cheat. i didn't meet the cheat. >> seth: we looked at the roster, we don't have room for two cutoff men. [ laughter ] >> maybe if third had covered?
i was a crazy good strategist. they missed out. but, because i didn't make the team and i hadn't audition for the play, reno was nice enough to give me a couple of parts. but the first was -- because art comes to life -- the person who opens the show is "the thinker." the statue "the thinker." >> seth: sure, rodin's thing. >> yes. which is made of green marble. so i went from hopes of being star baseball player on my high school baseball team to wearing a speedo covered in green paint, singing in my then 13-year-old falsetto boy voice. [ laughter ] i was a little emasculated. >> seth: yeah. i feel like the theater community was punishing you. i think that thought well, if you thought you'd be a baseball player, why don't you come on our show and just think about it. [ laughter ] think about your choices. >> yeah. think about what you've done. [ applause ] >> seth: your fifth season on "snl."
they celebrated it with this crazy show. >> for me! >> seth: yeah. >> it was so nice of them. >> seth: they brought everybody back. >> tom hanks showed up! [ light laughter ] such a good guy. yeah, this season was insane. >> seth: did the season have the weight of the "snl" 40th? did you feel it? was the season -- was it more like a normal "snl" season after that? >> no. no, i feel like there was a buzz afterwards. just because it's amazing -- like, certainly there was more appreciation, because everybody came back for the 40th and all my heros were there. not just comedy heroes. yourself at the top of the list, obviously. [ laughter ] and then will ferrell and jim carrey. >> seth: sure, that's the order i have it in. that's the order i have it in! >> good, good good. but also, like, george lucas is in the audience, and steven spielberg. anybody who has had any effect on my life culturally was in the room. so, got to work with jim carey again, who is a hero of mine. and working with michael keaton. >> seth: yeah. micheal keaton i know you love. huge "batman" fan.
>> yes. >> seth: you do a great michael keaton. give us a little taste. just a little taste. >> yeah, sure. you wanna taste? here's your taste. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: really good. i remember -- i didn't think there was such a thing as a michael keaton. and i remember jost came into my office one night and goes, "taran has a real good michael keaton." and there's that thing when somebody has a new impression everybody runs to their office, and goes, "yeah." [ laughter ] you, jim carrey -- huge jim carrey fan. and you, back in the day, you did some jim carrey costumes for halloween. we have some photos. >> oh, great, great, great. yeah i've worked with jim. i call him jim now. three times. >> seth: so this is a halloween costume, and that is -- [ audience aws ] that's you as the mask. >> nailed it. killed it. >> seth: we were saying, don't print this ever in black and white. cause this looks really -- [ laughter ] >> some bad version of "the jazz singer." >> seth: what were you doing? >> whoa! >> seth: you need the yellow and the green to play in this photo.
then you also dressed up as jim carrey next year for the riddler, yes? >> i was jim carrey consecutive years. i think even before "the mask," it was the "ace ventura" year. >> seth: wow. >> and then the year after this was the riddler from "batman forever." i decided to cut my hair into a flat top for just halloween. >> seth: wow. >> to really look like the riddler. i remember the day after i got the haircut, i showed up at school and at morning break, robby blauer walked up to me and was like, "hey, did you get your haircut to look like jim carrey in the 'batman' movie, the riddle?" and i was like, "yeah." and he said "okay, cool." then i watched him walk across the quad to a group of guys, talk, and them all erupt into laughter. [ laughter ] and i was like, "is this not cool?" [ laughter ] >> seth: you did one of my favorite things, you did on the show this year.
you did a lot of things i love. but, blazer was great. >> yeah, thank you. that's zach and tim and che. >> seth: so blazer you played -- it's sort of an '80s looking cop. >> yeah, yeah yeah. sort of touches on "night rider" and a little "magnum pi." and swagger, i'd say. >> seth: you were sort of running around, jumping on rooftops in new york city. very action oriented. you took an actual fall. >> yes. yes, yes, yes. yes. i was literally in my element in heaven that zach and tim and che wrote me this part where i could fly over hoods of cars and hurdle buildings -- walls of buildings. i was killing it all day. and then towards the end of the afternoon, they had me jumping over little -- i would say, like, three to four foot walls between buildings. we did three takes. nailed it. then they're like -- the cinematographer, i would land and do a somersault and lower my
sunglasses. and alex, the cinematographer, is like, "oh, i didn't move the camera. can you do it one more time?" and i was like, "can i do it one more time? watch this!" [ laughter ] just at that last hurdle, clipped my heel, and then i just ate turf. just ate it. and they used it in the video. >> seth: that's the thing. did you know they were going to use it? [ laughter ] >> here's what happened. so, i'm doing my best cool guy, hurdle jump. clip, fall. the whole clip will show that i do recover and still somersault, and show the glasses. but as soon as i did that and they go "cut," i go "you have to use that. please use that clip." because it's not the first time it happened to me. i'm the king of falling on the last take, the other time was chalize theron. we were doing "who's afraid of virginia wolf" parody, where we were drinking. and i did like three kegs stands. the last show is me doing a keg stand. they were like, "can you do one more?" i was like, "gus, yeah, i've been doing it all day." [ laughter ] and my arms knew this better than i.
so literally, i'm holding and i'm like halfway through the take, i'm like "oh, no. oh, god." and charlize theron, the second most beautiful girl in the word, is to my right. and i crumble and fall right on top of her head. >> seth: oh, no. >> i fall right onto her face, which i think is very important to her. [ laughter ] >> seth: it's the moneymaker. >> it's the moneymaker. so literally there's been like two season back to back -- and they ended that clip with that too. >> seth: we have the -- >> you should show that. >> seth: i want to show the blazer real quick to see how great it is that they used it. >> yeah. ♪ >> blazer.

[ laughter ] it's way too late for them. but, so these are actually some of the -- so this is a guy who -- that they replaced his head with a cello. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah? >> well, actually, they just tilted the head back and put the cello down here. >> seth: right, of course. my way would be a waste of time.

[ laughter ] and they, they had a look at this, once it had been shot and said, "oh that, that won't do." [ laughter ] is it the splayed skin? no, no, no. is that a pool of blood on the floor? no, well, it's the butt crack. >> seth: really? [ laughter ] >> yeah. and so there was a conversation where we can't really put on underpants, too late for that. and eventually they, "could you digitally add more blood?"
and that was the answer. >> seth: oh really? >> yes. >> seth: oh that's the classic -- >> that's, that's -- >> seth: it's called blooding -- blooding the crack. [ laughter ] could you bloody crack? i imagine there's tons of fake blood on the show. does it vary, are there different kinds of blood for different kinds of -- >> there's almost an infinite amount of different types of blood. all the departments have blood. so the costume department has their blood. and the makeup department has their blood. and the prosthetics, there's eye blood and there's mouth blood. and basically what happens is, everybody stands around and argues about whose blood they should use. and it's usually toronto in the winter. as i said. and then they all say, oh what the hell, and they mix it all in the bucket, and then they pour it on me. [ laughter ] >> seth: so anyway, you lose. whatever blood it is. >> yeah. >> seth: there's also, because of course we're dealing with hannibal lecter here. so there's not just killing but there's also the eating of people. there's some good ole cannibalism. and -- [ laughter ] you have a culinary expert on the show?
>> we do. there's a whole kind of chain of command, yeah. >> seth: who would, and he does what? [ laughter ] >> so, bryan fuller, who is our show runner and writer, would decide like, you know i need what if i wanted somebody to eat some lungs in this episode? which happened in the first season in fact. the chef would say you might consider pan frying it with xyz and by the way the lungs, when they're done, might whistle. so you might take that into consideration. >> seth: wow. now was that guy strapped to a board and on work release from a prison? [ laughter ] >> that guy loves his job. >> seth: yeah. that's one of those guys where you wish maybe he loved it a little less. [ laughter ] i also thought of some other body parts when i was home last night. do you have a favorite death in the history of the show? >> i, there's so many. there was -- [ laughter ] there really are so many. >> seth: so many. >> in the second season there was a body. there was a horse.
the body of a horse that was cut open and a human body kind of slithered out of that horse. when they did the autopsy on the human, a live bird emerged from the inside of the cadaver. which was, as you said, quite beautiful. >> seth: that's a really -- a really weird turdunkin. i feel like that's what you just described. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> look, this doesn't surprise me at all, but that's what they call it in the writers' room. >> seth: really? on that set, obviously so gruesome, but there must be a lightness to it. that's the only i would imagine to go about it. >> it's hysterical. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, constantly. no, but it is. and anybody will tell you in a way the darker the material, the subject matter, the more you're gonna have a light tone on set. but our show is, i mean this is much like a fairy tale as it is -- >> seth: yes. >> it's not naturalistic. you know. >> seth: right. >> if you believe this show, then you have a problem. [ laughter ] and as a result, it's not like -- we don't go to work and have to grapple with that.
it's fun. >> seth: it's fun to watch as well. it's a wonderful show. i'm so glad it's back on. give it up, everybody, for hugh dancy.
