On Doing 'Weekend Update'

I loved doing [Weekend] Update. It completely and in the best way changed my experience of doing the show. Lorne Michaels always said to me that the difference is that you will say your name on the show, and it makes a difference… you're allowing yourself to be yourself on camera, which is hard for an actor to do but really hard for a comedian to do, I think. You're not hiding behind a character.
