Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Comedian Bill Hader said his Saturday Night Live character Stefon, a nightlife reporter who wasn't very good at his job, probably wouldn't know there is a pandemic going on.
"He'd probably go for a while and not really notice," Hader laughed during a virtual appearance on Thursday's edition of Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Noting how Stefon habitually covered his mouth and nose with his hands, Hader said, "It's kind of a mask."
"I think he was probably Patient Zero on some level," Hader said. "He's probably had [the coronavirus] a couple of times and now he is fine."
Hader also recalled how a sketch he wanted to do on SNL was cut in the dress rehearsal because everything that could go wrong did.
"The set almost fell on Justin Bieber and then I tried to make it part of the sketch or something and then I remember none of the props I was supposed to have were there," Hader said. "It just went terrible."
