Fans hoping giggly “Saturday Night Live” New York City events expert Stefon may one day hit the big screen might need to take a moment to cry into their hands.
Bill Hader, who plays the character with those inappropriate-for-family recommendations during “Weekend Update” on “SNL,” told GQ’s Comedy Issue it is unlikely Stefon will become the focus of a feature film.
“There’s no emotional through line,” the exiting “SNL” player told the mag. “Sometimes people say to me, ‘I want a Stefon movie’ and I’m like, you think you want a Stefon movie but then you’ll see the poster for it and think: ‘Wait, I don’t want this.’”
Bill, who is exiting “SNL” at the end of the season, said he is not sure he will continue to do impressions as his career continues.
“To be totally honest, I don’t know if I’ll keep doing more impressions,” he said. “People told me I had a facility for it, and I was like, ‘Okay, I’m the impression guy.’ So you imagine the cast at ‘SNL’ is an A-Team, and you’ve got the explosives guy, and I’m the impression guy.”
Now that the actor is leaving the show, he revealed he plans to spend more time with his family, and move.
“Sleep. Spending time with my family. A new set of concerns. Heading back to LA,” he said. “I met my wife in California and lived out there before this. We have good friends out there.”
