‘SNL’s’ Jason Sudeikis on Jon Hamm’s kissing skills and more

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Brandon Voss has done another terrific interview for ‘The Advocate.’

This time his subject is ‘Saturday Night Live’ funnyman Jason Sudeikis who has the feature films ‘Hall Pass’ and ‘Horrible Bosses’ coming out soon. Will he join the ranks of such ‘SNL’ alums as Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, John Belushi and Chevy Chase by becoming a big movie star?

Time will tell.

Here are some excerpts from his chat with Brandon:

Have guys ever hit on him?
I think so. No guy’s offered to whisk me away on a boat to some amazing island, unfortunately, but I have been high-fived a few times with a thoughtful, lingering glance.

On kissing Jon Hamm on the hog:
Well, technically I kissed him on the mouth, but — oh, you mean the motorcycle. ‘SNL’ already has those “Kissing Family” sketches, where the joke is that the family is way too into each other, so Jon and I agreed in rehearsal, “Let’s not play this for laughs with slapping tongues. Let’s kiss for real. We’ll bump mustaches and kiss like we mean it.”… The sketch was written by James Anderson, one of our gay writers, and Michael O’Brien, one of our straight writers, and they delighted in the details of the scene beyond just building to a kiss between two of Liz Lemon’s ex-boyfriends.

On sucking Zac Efron’s foot:
There was so much good energy by the time we did it for the show, I thought, I’m just going to try it and make him fight me, but I was able to overpower him and stick half his foot in my mouth. I figured if anyone in the world has a clean foot, it’s got to be Zac Efron…That’s one of the nice things about life: It doesn’t matter how good-looking you are or how well your career’s going, all our feet taste the same.

Is Jon Hamm a good kisser?
As far as I can tell. I’ve kissed a handful of fellas in various improv shows and stuff, but I’d never done it with a mustache or kissed someone else with a mustache, so that was interesting. It’s off the bucket list!
