When you move to L.A. or New York, it’s easy to get a little lost and forget your original goal.
When I met Judd Apatow, he told me I should start writing screenplays. They’d be really bad at first, but the more I did it, the better I’d get.

There are some really funny women at ‘SNL,’ man.
There’s a movie called ‘Pod People’ that has a weird little anteater alien. That was a good alien.

The first time I ever acted was in ‘The Glass Menagerie’ in high school, and my first line was, ‘I didn’t know Shakespeare had a sister.’
The first time I met James Franco, he was dressed like James Dean. He was James Dean, literally, filming a biopic.
Pete Davidson – he’s in the movie ‘Trainwreck.’ He has a small part in it. I told Lorne Michaels about him, said he was really funny.
Sometimes you’re working with somebody, and you can tell they’re just waiting to say their line.
