Backstage at SNL with Fred Armisen

Saturday Night Live may have wrapped up its season almost two weeks ago, but cast member Fred Armisen still has some backstage dish to share from the season finale on his NBC blog. He offers that having Steve Carell host meant seeing more than a few of Carell’s co-workers from The Office, who also used to work at SNL. Armisen writes, "We see them pretty often and some of our writers have gone on to work for that show, so they are kind of like an extended family." Here’s a photo Armisen took of one of his closer "relatives," Bill Hader, going through makeup for a scene in which he plays big, so to speak.
