Bill Hader had some ideas about what his famous Saturday Night Live character Stefon would think about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Guesting on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the actor and former SNL star opened up about what his onetime “Weekend Update” character, ostensibly a nightlife correspondent, would be up to in the months following March 2020.

“It strikes me that a lot of what he does would probably be shut down right now,” Meyers said.

“I don’t know he would notice!,” Hader responded.

“I think he would kind of go for a while and not really notice … I think he was probably, you know, patient zero on some level. He’s probably had [Covid-19] a couple of times, and now he’s fine.”

Meyers countered that the clubs Stefon might visit probably wouldn’t follow Covid safety guidelines, Hader joked, “They were all pretty underground – if they, in fact, exist, you know?”

In fact, Hader, suggested, Stefon was so “bad at his job” that the clubs he talked about probably weren’t even real.

“You knew he was lying, but you were being really patient with him,” Hader said to Meyers, who used to host “Weekend Update”.

Hader also offered an update around season three of his HBO comedy Barry, revealing that both the third season and the fourth season were already written.

“Right when the lockdown happened in March, we were a week away from shooting,” Hader said. “Season three is completely written and ready to go, and during this time we actually went and wrote season four. So we have both of those kind of done, so we’re just waiting until we can start shooting again.”
