    He could not have been any less interested in being there. Can't blame him though.

    His voice is basically the vocal equivalent of a rabbit; soft and unthreatening.

    Was Parnell the guy in the Red jogging suit who did that cool dance in all the "What's up with that?" intros?

    • Zooba57

      @linkvigilante21 Thanks, Sudeikis was hilarious in that red jogging suit. Parnell did good stuff too.

    Chris gives me slight Ed Norton vibes in this interview.

    15 years ago in Lazy Sunday he had a bald spot the size of a baseball. Now it's completely gone? Maybe that's the subtext of Stephen's hair comments.

    • Stuart T
      Stuart T 23 days ago

      @Cindy Howard you can see the side/ back of his head well enough when he comes out to see he hasn't a giant bare spot there like someone who's been losing his hair for 15 years would. He's also had innumerable appearances on other shows, in recent years that would also show the difference. If I were you, I wouldn't make personal comments like calling someone much more observant than you "ridiculous".

    Am I the only one who was a fan back in his SNL days? One of the best straight men in the show's history. Was great at delivering dry humor and whenever everyone else was cracking up he always managed to stay in character.
    Basically, Chris Parnell is the anti-Jimmy Fallon.

    Chris Parnell has the distinct ability to be able to say virtually anything with a complete earnestness. He's an incredible comedic weapon.

    What is Colbert going to do when Trump is gone? Because his interviews are still so cringe.
