Lorne Michaels will see you now

A brilliant collection of anecdotes from past and present “Saturday Night Live” cast members on auditioning for the show.

Chevy Chase:

We had our cast and were back at [Studio] 8H, and there was a little room nearby with a long desk which could act as a stage. Lorne asked everybody to go up there and do something. At the end he said, “Chevy, get up there and do something.” So I made up some strange story about Gerald Ford. It was pretty clear that I was a funny guy. I was taller than everybody, and very handsome.

Heh. Lots of wonderful stuff here.
